Hamptons Fashion Week is back! Created by the DCG Media Group and curated by Producer, Fashion Veteran and DCG Media Group CEO Dee Rivera, the 3rd Annual Hamptons Fashion Week event was held this past weekend at the Southampton Arts Center August 7th-8th, 2021 by invitation only. The event featured live streaming and the first in person events since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. On August 6th, the event kicked off with a VIP Private Cocktail Sip and Shop followed by fashion shows and celebrity events offering a unique and chic experience for residents and guests to enjoy local fashion, beauty brands, entertainment, tech as well as new trends and looks from the East End.
As VIP guests and press arrived for the pre-fashion show party they were treated to a lovely performance by talented musicians Duoyi Xi (@bblarinet) and David Hincapie (@davhinc) who captivated the crowd with instrumentals played on the clarinet and violin. Guests strolled through the outdoor venue sipping on refreshing Signature Cocktails and Mocktails by Spring 44, Coconut Cartel and Ghost Tequila. They also enjoyed food samples from local restaurants, shopped with several exhibitors including Signature Blends by Kim Fields, Stella and Ruby Jewelry, NU-/me Moods Curated Home Collection and the Sara Shala Collection. Guests danced to the tunes provided by DJ Fly Girl Tunes while also posing on a floral decorated bike in the photo booth section. When guests wanted to relax, they sat at a beautifully decorated, floor seated picnic table with pillows provided by the company A Shore Vibe and featuring appetizers and drinks. The night ended with an amazing outdoor fashion show with all white decor under a white tent with music by Quiet Events.
