Music, fashion and charity – what’s not to love?! Last week we got into the spirit at The Other Ball in New York – a charity fundraiser in aid of Arms Around Children charity. Teaming up with our friend and hotshot producer Mark Ronson to host the event, we had a real ball!
A star-studded guest list headed over to the swanky Highline Ballroom to support the cause, decked out in achingly cool outfits for the ‘more black leather than black tie’ dress code. As we drank bubbles and mingled, we were treated to live performances from the likes of Lykke Li, A$AP Rocky and The Black Keys, plus a DJ set from Mark’s little sis Sam Ronson.
While getting down to the incredible music, generous guests flashed their cash in an auction of custom designed leather teddybears. Made by designers like Christian Louboutin, Alexander Wang, Opening Ceremony and Topshop (of course!), these one-of-a-kind bears helped raise even more money to help protect disadvantaged children all over the world.
And as if all this wasn’t enough – Mark Ronson wanted to share the fun with everyone who didn’t make it to the ball so took to the decks at our Manhattan outpost to play a DJ set. Check out the video of the events to some serious shapes behind thrown on the (shop) floor and the dancefloor!
