Last Thursday we introduced you to 30 of our closest new friends and got so psyched about the crew that we decided to throw a party as on-point as the names on our list. While the saying goes it takes a village to raise a child, in this case, it took a veritable village to fete our 30 game-changers. There were the DJs (Brendan Fallis and Hannah Bronfman), the passed apps (courtesy of Pizza Roma), the alcohol (have you tried Stoli Hot?), the spiked ice pops (from La Newyorkina), the candy we're still on a sugar high from (the one and only Dylan's Candy Bar), and, of course, the party planners (The New York Issue) that helped bring it all together. Plus Mother Nature — despite the 101 degree temps (literally), it was breezy and fresh at Jimmy at top of The James Hotel, where fashion-forward revelers gathered to dance, drink, and even, um, swim. We're not ones to brag, but... it was a damn good party, and though we had the weekend to cushion the blow, we're still feeling the buzz. Click through for some familiar faces, and to see how we got down to honor the 30 influencers who are on the up and up.
