A FABULOUS NIGHT OF FASHION & FRIENDS
Back in September, a lucky group of Tzell agents got the VIP treatment at New York Fashion Week! The team at CIRE Travel, Esther Klijn, Jamie Bennett and Gabe Magalhaes, along with Tzell Marketing’s Valentina Monreal, attended the Anna Sui runway show as VIP guests of Etihad Airways (a sponsor of NYFW and valued partner of Tzell). Nasreen Wasti, Key Account Manager National Accounts with Etihad was their host for the star-studded evening.
The night started with signature cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres at the exclusive Etihad VIP lounge tucked away in a private corner of Tribeca’s Spring Studios. The group were given welcome gifts of monogrammed, leather luggage tags and SWAG bags that included Anna Sui’s “Fantasia” fragrance. There were also mini-spa stations located around the room where you could indulge in a cold air facial.
The theme of this year’s show was “Grand Bazaar”, inspired by Sui’s favorite past time: shopping! The room was bustling like the open markets of India and the Far East. Guests wandered from table to table and could purchase clothing, scarves and jewelry. (No bartering, though!)
“I loved it,” raved CIRE’s Bennett. “It was like theater to me. You were able to interact with the show. I’ve never experienced anything like that. I loved be able to see everything close up.”
The group took their seats and waited for the main event to begin. Soon the music started pumping and the models made their entrance. Sui’s creations felt vintage and whimsical, in keeping with the grand bazaar theme. On the catwalk that night were super-sisters, Bella and Gigi Hadid, as well as Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s daughter. And in the audience along with the crew from CIRE and Tzell, were supermodel Naomi Campbell and film director Francis Ford Coppola.
It was fabulous night of fashion and friends. A special thanks to Nasreen Wasti and all of our valued partners at Etihad!
