A rooftop party is quintessentially New York. Gathering with friends overlooking the city’s view of skyscrapers, apartments sitting atop each other like pieces in a Tetris game, and public and street art as far as the eye can see, those moments on the roof are a celebration of all the city has to offer. We take you inside our rooftop party celebrating our squad of New York women who inspire.

Chelsea is known for art and the amazing architecture of the High Line. It’s also home to some of the most beautiful views of New York. Standing upon any rooftop and you can see the beauty of the city’s architecture all aglow in the evening light. It’s here where we decided to throw an intimate soirée with the women from our She’s So AphroChic campaign.

On a warm New York evening, the rooftop was decorated with a colorful array of AphroChic pieces. White sofas were filled with cushions in shades of fuchsia, deep blue, black and white. Baskets handmade in Rwanda became the perfect catchall for pieces like napkins and flatware. On the table, guests were treated to charcuterie, local fresh fruits and wine, and lots of good conversation. The smell of lavender wafted through the air, freshly planted on the rooftop deck.

As Beyonce’s Formation played in the background, guests talked about their creative paths, their little ones, and most importantly about the beauty of Black women gathering together. And how special it was to have a gathering of these women in particular, many who have broken the mold in their industry – a magazine editor, fashion designer, costume designer, model, floral designer, DIYer and author.

It was a night showcasing some serious Black Girl Magic. Just another evening surrounded by some of the most talented people you know in the city that never sleeps.
