The who's who of fashion & nightlife stopped by the "Tragic Glamour" exhibit to take in a photolistic journey like no-other (in NYC that's definitely impressive). The epic exhibit displayed creative, colorful and life-like blown up images of Designer/Popculture icon Richie Rich & Ross Higgins; as styled by Fashion Director/Celeb Stylist Derek Warburton and shot by renowned photographer Christopher Logan.
The Pop International Gallery was packed with guests anticipating this unique evening. I literally felt as if some of the images of Richie Rich were coming to life before my fashionable eyes. The stylish crowd was clearly impressed with the evening as I heard many of them complimenting the creative and positive vibe of this special event!
Celebs such as Nicole Miller and "Real Housewives of New York" star Aviva Drescher came out to the Pop International Gallery for the Medea vodka-sponsored event, which Warburton said was inspired by "the glory days of glitter" and a throwback to when "people were art." Derek Warburton who is also a well-known New York Fashion Week staple, International media personality and a stylist to many well known celebs & high-profile designers does what he can to give back to the community. He's well known for his gracious work with charities such as "Bottomless Closet" and this latest art exhibit. Proceeds from the sale of the images went to The Bailey House, which provides housing and support services to homeless men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in New York City.
