To celebrate the annual high-profile horse show that is the Hampton Classic, fashion designer, heiress, and equestrian, Ariana Rockefeller hosted an intimate dinner among friends on Friday, August 28, at the Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton.

Held at the storied inn’s historic barn (can the location be more perfect?), guests mingled during the cocktail hour before enjoying a farm-to-table dinner. A three-course meal was served, and included fresh produce from the property’s nearby farm.

The event continued outdoors, where guests gathered around a fire pit to make s’mores for a sweet dessert.

Notable attendees included Georgina Bloomberg, Beth Johnson, Whitney Fogg, Lee Nordstrom, Matthew Bucklin, Elizabeth and Jonathan Kurpis, Alex Hamer, James Ridings, Steve BogdenPaul Butterworth and Heather Hays.

To welcome the season, the Fall 2015 collection of Rockefeller’s namesake label will launch in the coming weeks, with custom, in-house designed prints—including some equestrian in nature styles. For now, autumn can’t come any sooner.
