Soigne K Brings out the Color!
By Renee Lucas, April 13th, 2011
In a city where black is always the most acceptable color, guests at the New Yorkers for Children gala did not shy away from bright colors last night. In order to compliment the evenings sponsor Soigné K, jewel tones, rich hues, and exceptional design details made an impact at The Mandarin Oriental.
Selita Ebanks dazzled in a red dress, while Karolina Kurkova’s draped rust gown was complimented by a slit that went to the very top of her thigh. Rachel Roy played with menswear in a teal jacket and pink pants, while Harley Viera-Newton seemed to be channeling Katy Perry with an electric purple mini. Other gorgeous guests included Kerry Washington, Arlenis Sosa and Rose McGowan—and the photographers at Patrick McMullan sure did an amazing job at capturing them all.
Soigné K boutique, founded by Soigné Kothari, carries a selection of the finest modern Indian designer goods that are difficult to find in the US. On the ground floor of her 717 Madison Avenue boutique, customers can find everyday wear like shawls, dresses, scarves and fashion jewelry by some of the best emerging Indian designers. Go upstairs and find more traditional Indian garments, like one-of-a-kind saris and lehengas.
Soigné K began her relationship with the charity late last year when New Yorkers for Children event chairs Rory Hermelee, Allison Aston, Marisa Noel Brown, and Adelina Wong Ettelson help launch Ms. Kothari’s store, and welcomed her to New York’s fashion community.
