What A Perfect Paris Fashion Week Dinner Should Look (And Feel) Like

Chez Away

When in Paris, eat Ladurée. And that's exactly what we did this week and then some. With our friends at THE OUTNET and Away, we wined and dined at Amastan Paris with host J. Errico and a bevy of fashion heavyweights. Chez Away was in good spirits thanks to Grey Goose cocktails, which were even spiked with gold. THE OUTNET gifted each guest a leather clutch from Iris & Ink, its in-house label, filled with gift cards. Thanks to a lil' contest, one guest even went home with a new Margiela bag. As for the Ladurée? Well, head of pastry creation Claire Heitzler focused on autumnal flavors of their iconic macarons, which she calls "the supermodel of the food industry." Sure, the evening ended with Ladurée's newest creations, but Heitzler promises she and her team are "never finished creating new macarons." Très bien!
