Thursday afternoon and evening were all about Stella McCartney. First, she hosted an afternoon tea party at her Greene Street store before debuting her spring 2015 resort collection at the Elizabeth Street Garden. McCartney has a history of providing dazzling presentations and yesterday’s affairs were no exception.

Her tea party was to benefit the Women’s Leadership Council of the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund. The group of passionate female business leaders are raising money to support 10 residential art program facilities. Author Olivia Harrison, designer Gabriela Perezutti and real estate agent Dolly Lenz co-chaired the celebration with McCartney.

McCartney had quite the lineup to applaud her success at her spring 2015 collection presentation. Supermodels Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, actresses Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lucy Liu and Liv Tyler, double threat model and actress Amber Heard, and actress Emmy Rossum were all present to support McCartney.

Bergdorf Goodman’s fashion director Linda Fargo and artist Jeff Koons were also in attendance.

The event featured more than McCartney’s unique, eclectic pieces. Airstream USA was present in one of their infamous travel trailers serving drinks to guests and Eva Chen brought her fluffy white dog, Liger for guests to play with. Balloon flowers arced the entrance, ribbon streamers lined the grass and bubbles sprinkled the air.

The garden’s statues, columns and iron gates created a picnic-party atmosphere and allowed McCartney to showcase her creative design ability not only through her collection but her presentation of it as well.
