The Upper East-Side came alive in an excitement on Thursday, July 17, 2014 for Raine Magazine’s much anticipated release party, celebrating their landmark 20th issue—Design and Innovate! Theevent brought together leading influencers and read like a who’s who set against the posh interiors of the beautifully appointed Two E Bar & Lounge.
The night was off to a roaring start as the lounge filled to capacity with an eclectic, dare we say eccentric mix of entrepreneurs, investors, glamazons and fashion enthusiast. Attendees mixed and mingled over glasses over flowing with a selection of wines from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, and other palette pleasing cocktails provided by The Patrón Spirits Company.
The mood was right and full of surprises as celebs from all over made appearances on and off the red carpet. The glare of flashing cameras and paparazzi grew to a frenzied chaotic buildup as actress Katherine Bailess stepped in front of the step and repeat—the flashing cameras went wild! Other notables that graced the room included: iconic fashion superstar Debbie Dickinson, Nico from Love & Hip Hop, and a bevy of business powerhouses from Citibank and special guest from Advanced Wealth Associates.
Inside the posh Two E Bar, the electricity swept through the room as guest gyrated succumbing to the musical genius of DJ Javin, working the crowd into a thunderous groove.
As the night quickened, the reality set it in that all good things must end, before leaving all guest received swag with international skin care line Epice and gift cards from OOBERLUXE. The night brought together some of the biggest must know names in the city to minge and celebrate with Raine Magazine.
