Diane von Furstenberg and Harley Viera-Newton Celebrate New Holiday Capsule Collection

Thursday, December 5, 2013

Diane von Furstenberg doesn’t only have an eye for fashion — she knows how to throw a party, too.

The renowned fashion icon hosted an exclusive holiday celebration last Monday in honor of the launch of her Holiday Capsule Collection, which she designed in collaboration with DJ/model/designer and NYC socialite, Harley Viera-Newton.

The duo feted their new line at Diane von Furstenberg’s West Village boutique alongside a handful of A-Listers. Nicky Hilton, Sami Gayle, and British IT girl Atlanta de Cadenet all donned DVF couture in homage of their fabulous hostess.

Other notable attendees include InStyle fashion news director Eric WilsonHarper’s Bazaar editor-at-large Derek Blasberg, fashion blogger Fiona Byrne, designer Hanuk Hanuk, fashionista Natalie Obradovich, and actress/writer Jessica Joffe. Newton’s beloved feline, Marmite, was also in the mix.

Guests had access to a photo booth, where they could snap silly shots of themselves wielding giant candy canes and glittery snowflakes, while wearing sequined reindeer antlers and chic Santa hats.

The cheery crowd sipped cocktails around a splendid tower of Diane von Furstenberg goodies, all pristinely wrapped in magenta and black paper flecked with gold, and sealed with satin ribbon printed with one of DVF’s signature mantras: Love is life.
