New York, NY (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
As freezing temperatures sweep through New York City, Duane Street Hotel once again opens its doors to keep beauty and fashion bloggers writing in warmth, as part of New York Fashion Week with the second Duane Street Hotel Bloggers Lounge.
The Blogger’s Lounge takes place February 7 – 10 and provides writers with a space to work, hold meetings and attend presentations by industry insiders. This year’s Lounge features premier event partner Per-fékt Beauty, who will be on-site February 9 and 10 to give beauty consultations and new product demonstrations. Per-fékt Beauty creates beauty products that combine makeup and skincare to perfect and enhance the skin — ideal for on-the-go bloggers.
"We’re thrilled to host our second Bloggers Lounge – especially with all of the newest reasons to stop by, including the pop-up store in one of our newly renovated guestrooms,” said Nicolas Daeppen, Duane Street Hotel general manager. “This season, the lounge has morphed into a dynamic event that really embraces those in beauty and fashion. Our partners Per-fékt Beauty, Kembrel and Evian have really helped bring this vision to life.”
Attendees of the Lounge can shop at the pop-up store just above the lounge, featuring Kembrel, a Philadelphia-based fashion e-commerce turned brick and mortar boutique that offers womenswear, menswear and accessories. The store operates from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and is open for the duration of the Lounge. Kembrel enjoys a loyal cult following among stylish twentysomethings for men’s and women’s clothing that reflects a forward-thinking aesthetic and is altogether accessible, modern and downtown chic.
Other perks for attendees include: a giftbag of goodies from Per-fékt Beauty and Kembrel. Renowned Chef Jehangir Mehta, a contender on Food Network’s “The Next Iron Chef,” is offering an a la carte menu of light treats for bloggers to order. Mehta owns the much-loved Graffiti in the East Village and operates Mehtaphor, located within Duane Street Hotel.
Admittance is complimentary for all attendees. The Bloggers Lounge is open 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily from February 7 until February 10. The Lounge is open to the public, but RSVP is requested. RSVPs should be sent to: events(at)independentcollection(dot)com.
