The event itself needs no introduction, but for those caught unawares I will give one anyway. Last night, Opening Ceremony took over the Ace Hotel lobby and closed off Broadway, between 28th and 29th Streets, to host our Mercado de Carnaval – all in the name of Fashion’s Night Out. With carnival games galore, fabulous food, drinks and friends, FNO never looked so magnificent!
Sultry tango performances, right there on Broadway, kicked off the evening's entertainment. Moments later, Hanna Herbertson led her flash mob dance crew through what would be one of five dancehall routines, each with Suno, OC, Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang T and Christopher Kane costume changes! Inside the Ace Hotel lobby, the fun was bouncing off the walls as Vogue food editor Jeffrey Steingarten discussed Argentinean Malbec and Laura Catena’s book, Vino Argentino. Ascending the lobby’s staircase, the ethereal Manila Luzon (in character as Evita) captivated her audience singing “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” and “Rainbow High”.
Carnival games are fun, no arguments there. But those hosted by some of fashion's best designers, now that’s more like it! Stalls indoors and outdoors included the Alexander Wang skee ball stand, an aura reader at the Delfina Delettrez stall, The Muppets x Opening Ceremony and Riviera Club water pistol challenges, a Keds baseball pitch, Rodarte cotton candy, a Gitman Bros. darts game, customizable goodies at the Havaianas, Jansport, and Band of Outsiders stands.
