Havana Nights with River, Sebastian and Frankie at Nick Graham

For Spring/Summer Nick Graham took us on a trip to tropical Havana! Last Wednesday, at nine in the morning, the designer hosted one of the most exhilarating and vivacious shows during NYFW: Men's. Complete with carnival dancers and an in-house salsa band, the hybrid presentation/runway show ended in a dance party with the designer himself pulling audience members onto the runway.  It was a celebration that included surprise runway guest Frankie Grande and supermodels River Viiperi and Sebastian Sauve. Bill Nye, yes that science guy, strolled down the runway with Amanda Roseberg on arm to join the revelry, while CFDA ambassador Eric Rutherford watched from the sidelines. It was an amazing experience that I am still replaying in my head a week later. Review to follow.
