NEW YORK — Bloomingdale’s took the opportunity of New York Fashion Week: Men’s last week to introduce the newest member of its team to the industry. The retailer held a cocktail party at Mimi on Sullivan Street to raise a glass to Justin Berkowitz, the former Details staffer who joined the fashion office as men’s fashion director.
“We wanted to celebrate New York Fashion Week: Men’s and felt it was a great opportunity to celebrate Justin coming onto our team,” said Kevin Harter, the store’s vice president for fashion direction.
The overflow crowd that turned out at the event received a Baccarat tumbler with their initials engraved on it as a gift. In addition to former fashion director Josh Peskowitz, the event drew Bloomingdale’s chief executive officer Tony Spring as well as a bevy of other executives and editors.
Last season, Bloomingdale’s hosted a lunch for the attendees at the inaugural men’s stand-alone shows in New York City.
