New York's Taj Hotel Partners with Stephanie Van Watzdorf for Fashion Week

The Pierre, A Taj Hotel in New York (and the U.S. flagship for Taj Hotels) has partnered with designer Stephanie Van Watzdorf and her luxury brand, Figue, for a unique New York Fashion Week perk. 

For the first week of September, the hotel's Two E Bar/Lounge will be remade into the pop-up Figue Lounge. Mannequins personally styled by Von Watzdorf will be positioned throughout the lounge to highlight the Fall 2014 ‘Luxe Nomad’ collection. Bonus: The lounge will also display fragrant Figue aromatherapy candles.

For libations at the bar, guests can try a limited-time only Figue-a-tini cocktail, a blend of Fig infused Vodka with Grapefruit, Lemon Juice, and Cassis. Snacks will include Front Row Deviled Eggs, Hudson Valley Foie Gras Parfait with Portwine Jelly, Curried Main Lobster & Lotus Chips and more. A miniature haute couture dessert flight features Sago-tini, a Coconut & Sago Martini with Crenshaw Melon Sorbet; Doughnut Peach Mojito with Ricotta Cream, Peach Mojito Sorbet, Fresh Mint, Blueberry Ginger Sauce; and Upstate Farms Raspberry-Mary with Verbena Raspberry Crush, Lemongrass Black Pepper Sorbet & Toasted Cake Croutons
Formerly Vice President of Design at Tory Burch, Van Watzdorf also designed for Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, and Ralph Lauren before launching her own luxury fashion collection in Nolita. 

The Pierre, A Taj Hotel is located at 2 East 61st Street (at Fifth Avenue), and the program runs from September 5 – 11, 3 p.m. - 1 a.m.
