Vionnet Launch Party
Fashion Week party season was in full swing last night at the Vionnet launch party at Barneys New York. The glitterati were in attendance as Victoria Bartlett, Gilles Bensimon, Valerie Steele, Phillip Lim, Olivia Chantecaille, Meredith Melling Burke, Padma Lakshmi, and Sally Singer converged to party and get a glimpse of the iconic French label that is being reintroduced by 33-year-old fashion phenom Sophia Kokosalaki. Greek-born Kokosalaki, who has outfitted Bjork and the other performers at the 2004 Olympics, is known as the queen of Grecian style dresses. The partnership of a hot new designer like Sophia Kokosalaki and Vionnet seems like a match made in heaven. The House of Vionnet was known for its ethereal, fluid, bodice-skimming sleeping beauty-style dresses. Kokosalaki’s Greek goddess-style dress accumen is sure to infuse Vionnet with some new creative energy to appeal to the modern goddess in every woman.
