On a beautiful Manhattan night, Gilt.com and the CFDA gathered to celebrate their inaugural All-Star Scholarship Winner, Kieran Dallison, and his debut collection, which is being sold exclusively on Gilt.com. Guests mingled in the lovely No. 9 space at the Mondrian Hotel on Crosby Street, sipping Stoli vodka Gilt Gimlets and nibbling on tasty bites like mini lobster rolls and tuna tartare.
The scholarship’s esteemed judging panel of fashion stars, including Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey, and designers and CFDA members Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia and Prabal Gurung, admired the young designer’s collection, which was modeled presentation-style. Eight looks from the collection, ranging from cut-out rompers to slinky jersey dresses, were styled with architectural jewelry by The Stones and Modern Vintage ankle-strap heels.
