ALIVE On The Scene: Fauxgerty HOT Lounge at NYFW
This past Monday in New York, St. Louis’ own cruelty-fee, eco-friendly brand Fauxgerty hosted the HOT Lounge and HOTBOX after party during New York Fashion Week. The event, produced by Alicia Underwood and Laura Heying of the ALIVE Influencer Network, welcomed 200 guests over the course of the day. The after-party, hosted by Brooklyn blogger Keiko Lynn, featured tarot card readings by Crimson Kitty, henna by Mehndi NYC, music by DJ TrashTalk and a photo booth by local STL photographer Elizabeth Wiseman.
The event–a NYC-first for Fauxgerty–offered guests a relaxed atmosphere where they could sit down and hang out for awhile with a hot miso bar, vegan sushi, custom chocolate bars and everyone left with a complimentary sweatshirt.
“Working with ALIVE Influencer Group was amazing. Since we went into this new experience, their knowledge of what the event should entail was so important to us,” Chrissy Fogarty from Fauxgerty explained. “I met people I have followed on Instagram for years and people who are doing wonderful work in the industry.”
Notable guests included Stacy London, Jeff and Mary Clarke of Mother Models, Christine of My Style Pill and models Alanna Arrington, Jay Wright, Caitie Greene, Jennie Runk and Georgina Burke.
