With all of the fashion VIP’s rubbing elbows on the streets of Soho and the Meatpacking District, it’s a guarantee of some serious buzz buzz buzz. Shoe designer Brian Atwood, a staple of Hollywood red carpets and New York runways alike, held an exclusive soiree at Saks Fifth Avenue this week to fete the launch of his diffusion line of footwear, B Brian Atwood. VIPs, Saks executives and industry influencers flocked to the mecca of retail therapy to grab a peek at the line, which starts as low as $200 and yet retains the magic of Atwood’s previous collections.
