For us-as soon as we heard the the familiar Hunter/Garcia "Scarlet Begonias" we knew it was going to be a great night.
|Hosts -Chairman Michael and Elin Nierenberg-and family|
|Honorees-incredibly talented and super nice Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs-design duo who met at Parsons-and quickly became a must wear body-con label fairly soon after they graduated! We were honored to sit at their table-and learned the Pre-Fall show was only a few days away. Very calm…very impressive. Plus great musical tastes-Carly Cushnie told us her older sister turned her on to American R+B including the late "Queen of Urban Pop" Aaliyah|
