The MensWearNetwork held their second event of the year at the the Lambs Club at the Chatwal Hotel. At this, their April event, an impressive turnout of approximately 100 attendees gathered to discuss menswear news and ideas for the future. Fern Mallis raffled her newly published book, Fashion Lives, which was won by Chiun-Kai “Chunky” Shih, who was also celebrating his birthday, and his return from travelling the globe.
Old friends including Ed Jones, Allen Cohen and Vince Gonzales attended the event, while new attendees included Danny Gee of DGee Design and celebrity photographer Jennifer Graylock.
With the expansion of menswear, a lot was discussed, especially the upcoming New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July and the designers scheduled to show. MensWearNetwork will have their next event in July of this year.
