Recently J.Estina announced the grand opening of their first boutique in the United States, located at The Shops in The Plaza. OJ&B was invited to stop by the grand opening festivities that brought the likes of Fern Mallis (pictured above with Mr. Kim, President of J.Estina) and Patricia Field!
J.Estina's in-store celebration was hosted by stylist Mary Alice Stephenson while Downtown it-girl, May Kwok DJ'd the event. It was great to see Fern as she always brings great energy to any event. She is so nice and approachable! I also loved seeing me some Patricia Field! She has a style that is truly all her own. I don't think anyone else could have come to The Plaza in a fur with lime green shoes and a smiley face bandanna and look like a fashion rock star. Pat is such a legend and her eccentric style matches her perfectly. She is one of the nicest people that I have met in fashion while in NYC.

Other people who showed up to support J.Estina included Simon Collins, Dean of Fashion Parsons The New School for Design, Survivor winner Ethan Zohn, MTV host Lenay Dunn and models Julie Henderson and Allie Rizzo. The event also brought out many of New York’s social elite including Annie Churchill Albert, Anna Sheffield and friend of OJ&B, Richie Rich.
