We're going to call it—Prabal Gurung
's after-party for his fall '11 show
clocks in as one of the off-the-wall funnest fetes of Fashion Week
so far. The first event thrown at what can't but help be NYC's hottest new spot, Mister H
(note, no prostitutes allowed) at the not yet-opened Mondrian Hotel
, was a relatively intimate affair, with a drama-free door that was a nice change of pace from some of the weekend's crazier ragers. That's not to say the energy inside wasn't fully charged—Prabal would be a shoe-in on Dancing With The Stars
, that's how impressed we were his stellar moves last night. Of course where Prabal goes, others soon follow—by 11 p.m. Taylor Tomasi Hill
, Meredith Melling Burke
, and Brad Goreski
were all swinging to Mia Moretti
's even-better-than-usual beats (uh Ginuwine's My Pony anyone?), photog Billy Farrell
was snapping from tables, and Belvedere-and-sodas disappeared faster than Gurung's last collection. If the scene looked familiar, it's because it was: Mister H is the brainchild of Armin Amiri
, whose days at Bungalow 8 could probably fuel a best-selling series. Indeed, when Britney Spear's "Hold It Against Me," came on, we felt like we could have switched it out for "Im A Slave 4 U", grabbed a watermelon mojito, and made three new best friends. And it happend—our kinda faux fight over a Britney diss had Prabal stepping to the rescue: "Hey, hey, no fighting guys. It's all about peace and love." When arguably the nicest designer tells you to relax, well, that's just what you do...best believe we made a new friend too!
