A short 10-minute ferry cruise from Manhattan was just long enough to transport guests physically, emotionally and fashionably to the paradise resort of "Dior" at the Duggal Greenhouse on Brooklyn's East River waterfront.
Greeted with champagne by Dior's own navy of sailor suit-clad male models, guests were immersed in an evening fit for the glamour and style of the 2015 Dior Cruise Collection. The reception hinted French Riviera-cool, but high fashion showmanship took center stage, dazzling in every way and true to everything Dior. A mirrored backdrop reflected the 20,000-square-foot stage and elevated runway, and the Manhattan skyline sunset was second only to the 66-look resort collection.
The extravaganza drew plenty of fashion mainstays, including Rihanna, Marion Cotillard, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Margot Robbie, Leelee Sobieski and Christian Louboutin.
“It’s a little bit of real New York,” said model/DJ Alexandra Richards. “To bring that to the collection is something I love. And it’s exciting to bring the French bit to Brooklyn.”
Again the venue of choice for top designers looking to broaden fashion’s NYC boundaries out to Brooklyn, the Duggal Greenhouse is honored to have been selected by Dior for the 2015 Cruise Collection runway show.
