From there all were invited to another round of appetizers, drinks, and dancing in the main hall late into the night.
Vartan’s Winter collection, known as “dark city,” is about being a musician, growing up in the 1980’s, living and breathing rock and roll and city night life. It is as gothic and cool as Paris, Prague, Berlin, and London after dark. Nestled into his choices of leather, suede, cashmere, tweed, satin, and velvet are whispers of the art deco movement, film noir and the classic architecture of Europe’s oldest cities.
