Despite the tough economy, retailers and manufacturers during market week worked Madison Avenue showrooms by day and did some partying by night.
The week was underscored by several events, beginning with The Komar Co., which celebrated its 100th anniversary on May 5 with a cocktail and dinner party for 450 guests at the New York Public Library. The gala featured legendary entertainer Eartha Kitt, who wowed the audience with the sound of her trademark cat's meow as she belted out cabaret tunes in English, French and Japanese.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
