Nanette Lepore Hosted The Most Fun Show Of New York Fashion Week

Champagne, tea and fashion FTW.

New York Fashion Week seems glamourous. The clothes! The celebrities! The clothes! But as anyone who has ever attended the bi-annual event (and isn't Anna Wintour) can tell you, there's typically a lot of waiting in line and navigating crowds.

This season, Nanette Lepore turned that notion on its head by instead hosting what looks like the sexiest tea party of all time. On Thursday the designer showed off her collection at a presentation that was "inspired by a tea time journey with a mix of alluring prints, plush tweeds and delicate boudoir inspired lace," according to the brand.

Hosted in conjunction with the swanky Baccarat Hotel in New York City, guests sipped on tea and Champagne while models, including Lepore's daughter Violet, wore her Fall/Winter 2016 collection.

The designer has always added a bit of fun and flair to her shows, so the decision to host a tea party is not so surprising.

Fashion, fun and fizzy drinks? Sounds like a Fashion Week dream to us.
