After the huge success of Bastille Day Parisian Ball, BABEL New York returns to take you on another wonderful adventure. This new event again takes on a very French theme focusing on the fashion world – an industry that Paris is famous for, thanks to its many world-dominating haute couture houses and expert teams of designers. The glamorous couture of Paris will be transferred to the same amazing location as the Parisian Ball on September 7th. The Parisian Ball will be held at Fête Paradiso, the world’s first festival of vintage carnival rides and carousels at Nolan Park on Governors Island.
A celebration of the French capital and its unique take on the world of fashion, this is set to be another very special event. A selection of influential voices, contemporary fashion designers and cultural leaders has been carefully picked out in order to collaborate and set their unique tune to create a true fashion week celebration, in amongst the beautiful antique carousels and awe-inspiring carnivalesque location. The sights on offer will astound and amaze, providing the perfect day – a day that promises to kick off NYC's Fall season in style.
For such a spellbinding event to take place, of course we've assembled an elite team to set things off just right. The team includes: Olivier Van Themsche (The Cools), Tommy Saleh (Le Baron, NYCult),
Travis Bass (ex Bow, 415 club), Patrick Duffy (Hotel Americano, In Tandem Magazine), Sam Ben Avraham (Liberty Fair, Atrium), Zoe Nightigale (Monocle Order), Phil Winser & Ben Towill (Fat Radish, Leadbelly), Nektarios Ioannidis (Resolute), Dree Hemingway (Top Model and Actress),
Matt Bernson and Indira Cesarine, (EIC of The Untitled Magazine)
In collaboration with; StyleLikeU, TWELV Magazine, IN*TANDEM Magazine and
The Unlimited Magazine.
Meanwhile, press interest is already frantic with leading fashion outlets such as Style.com, What to Wear Daily and the mighty Wall Street Journal already throwing the hat in the ring as far as coverage in concerned.
Soul Clap & DJ W!LD...!
Our Parisian Ball not only provided a smorgasbord of visual entertainment, scintillating sights for those who ventured to Governors Island, but we also laid on some of the very best music one could hope for. The Parisian Fashion Ball will be no different, featuring not only a live DJ, but also playing host to some incredibly talented musicians who will take us into the night once the shows are over. The event will start at 5:00pm.
Heading the bill is Boston duo Soul Clap, AKA Charlie Levine and Eli Goldstein; the original East Coast selectors will be on hand with their extensive record collection and non-stop party vibes as usual. These guys have been travelling the world bringing their unique blend of house, funk, soul, disco and much more to captive audiences from Australia and Japan to Brazil and Russia.
Paris-based artist DJ W!LD is also on the bill. His talent has already been spotted by the much-respected Cocoon and crossotown rebel labels, thanks to their emotive take on electronic music. He will be performing his latest releases, in what is bound to be an amazing show.
