As you may have seen on Instagram or on our Gal Meets Glam Collection website, we’ve spent the last few days in New York City celebrating the launch of our coats! We have been looking forward to this launch and this trip for months, and both have been a dream come true. To help us celebrate in style, we invited a few New York-based influencer friends to join us at the gorgeous Lotte New York Palace. With the help of Christy Doramus of @christysgarden, we turned their Jewel Suite into a true Gal Meets Glam wonderland, not to mention the most beautiful setting for each of our special events!
After a fun kick-off evening where Carly, Caralyn, Rachel, Caila, Melanie, and Liz got to preview the coats and choose their top picks, we met back up early the next morning, ready to shoot our favorite looks. Even though I have spent lots of time in New York over the last two years especially, it was a treat to enjoy the city alongside some of the women who know it best. Lotte New York Palace offers an abundance of stunning backdrops right on the property—my favorites may have been the opulent lobby, the lush courtyard, and, of course, the rooftop, which boasts breathtaking views of the city.
That evening, we enjoyed the grand finale of the day. Thanks to Christy Doramus of @christysgarden, who brought my vision to life through her stunning floral arrangements and eye for thoughtful details, we created a total Gal Meets Glam Collection experience for over 100 friends of the brand. We completely transformed two floors of our suite to perfectly showcase both our newly launched coats and our upcoming holiday dresses and gift items. One detail that took the whole event to the next level was the life-sized moodboard installations by Verry Robin & Co. We loved the moodboards she created for this post so much, we couldn’t resist bringing them to life on a larger scale to share with our guests!
From the setting, to the conversations, to the palpable excitement over what’s next for Gal Meets Glam Collection, it was a day I will truly never forget.
