Couture comes to FIDI! Earlier this month, the legendary fashion house of Valentino chose the Beekman Hotel to showcase its Pre-Fall 2017 collection. The mid morning fashion show took over the upper levels of the hotel with guest sitting alongside the corridors of the now Insta-famous atrium. Models clad in gorgeous gowns and dresses didn’t walk a typical runway, instead they sauntered alongside the beautiful wrought iron railing, creating a unique juxtaposition of old and new.

Valentino’s head designer, Pierpaolo Piccioli ‘s collection was nothing short of stunning. Each piece more magnificent then the last. We showed up later in the day for the showcase and got to see the pieces up close. Super swoonworthy. The colors, the textures, the fabrics – it added up to a magical fairy land of clothing and accessories. BUT the real news to us was the choice of the Financial District for the venue. Guys, again, FIDI has arrived as a destination of our own! The Beekman Hotel has done a lot in broadcasting to the rest of New York City and for that matter, the rest of the world, that FIDI is NYC’s newest hot neighborhood!
We can’t say enough about the loveliness of the Valentino collection against the Beekman’s bricks and history. It was a sight to see, and here’s to hoping that the worlds of fashion and design spend more time here in our ‘hood. Enjoy the slide show and click on our videos of the amazing collection, displayed in the Beekman’s private cellar rooms (which you may have seen if you’ve gone to their bathrooms on the lower level!).
