Editors, retailers and fashion directors from all over came together to celebrate the first Jonathan Saunders DVF collection. The feast took place at one of the fashionista’s favorite locales, The Beatrice Inn in Greenwich Village. “We jumped in a taxi and in less than 10 seconds we were here,” Saunders said about his lack of knowledge of his new neighborhood. “We just moved to the Village — in fact we live just a block away.”

Diane von Furstenberg moved from table to table greeting the likes of Karlie Kloss and Allison Williams. “I am very happy with the collection,” von Furstenberg said. “He [Saunders] is an intelligent designer and very confident in his aesthetic.”
