Parties are back! Martha Stewart is hosting a virtual zoom and the Whitney held a glamorous soiree

When it comes to fashion, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a super stylish every-day passerby.

As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot.

To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this Friday series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for the clotheshorses and fashion fanatics alike.

GLAMOROUS PARTIES ARE BACK

The Whitney Museum of American Art’s Spring Celebration Dinner took place on Tuesday, May 18th at the Gansevoort Peninsula in Hudson River Park, across the street from the museum

The Whitney Museum of American Art’s Spring Celebration Dinner took place on Tuesday, May 18th at the Gansevoort Peninsula in Hudson River Park, across the street from the museum.

Perfectly timed with the sun setting, the picturesque event began with a cocktail hour and viewing of David Hammons’s Day’s End.

Sponsored by luxury fashion designer Pamella Roland, it was a very well dressed crowd that included the likes of Vanessa Williams, Nigel Barker and Pamella herself.

In celebration of Pamella’s newly launched eponymous perfume, a special Lavender Lemonade Cocktail made of lemon, lavender scented syrup and vodka was available at the bar, as well as travel-sized perfume samples.
