Jean Shafiroff spotted at New York Fashion Week with Nicki Minaj, Nicki Hilton & Narcisco Rodriguez
Fashion week in New York City is always a crazy time, but imagine being a socialite in this fashion-obsessed city.
Jean Shafiroff of the Upper East Side is no exception!
Shafiroff is known for her unique style and gowns from Oscar de la Renta to Carolina Herrera, which came as no surprise that she was spotted in the front row at both shows.
When Jean is not paying top dollar for designer gowns, she is not afraid to support local designers, which allows her to get custom-made pieces made exclusively for her petite figure.
Shafiroff had a busy fashion week, let’s recap to see what our favorite Park Avenue Queen was up to:
Tom Ford & Krispy Kreme
Before the infamous shoe toss at the Plaza Hotel, Cardi B., Anna Wintour and Tom Hanks were all among the fashionable at the Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2019 runway show. However, one knows that the real fun doesn’t begin until the after party begins! The party that was held at the Park Avenue Armory was a stones throw from Shafiroff’s pad. While she was not wearing Tom Ford, she did enjoy a fresh Krispy Kreme doughnut.
Couture Council Luncheon
In collaboration with The Couture Council of The Museum at FIT (MFIT),Shafiroff who is a board member and Angela Dotson co-chaired a luncheon honoring Narciso Rodriguez with the 2018 Artistry of Fashion Award at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City on September 6th. The award ceremony and luncheon raised in excess of $850,000 to benefit The Museum at FIT.
Selfie With Two Nicky’s
On Tuesday, Jean and the two Nicky’s were treated to rooftop runway show for the spring-summer 2019 collection of Oscar de la Renta, that felt like a sunny Mediterranean holiday — well, once it actually stopped drizzling.
Front Row Candid At Zang Toi
Not one to stick her nose up at local designers, Mrs. Shafiroff loves supporting the local designers of NYC, some of whom that may not be as recognizable. Zang Toi has a flair for making elegant designs bold, striking and, ironically, extravagant in simplicity.
His new collection that he presented on September 11th was completed with clean lines and a major influence from the De Stijl movement, popularized between 1917 and 1931, the collection was the ultimate in strong lines, the blocking of colour (rather than colour blocking) and strong, flat hues.
It looks like the busy philanthropist had a fun time, but now that Fashion Week is over we hear that Shafiroff is already planning for a busy fall gala season! Somethings just don’t change!
