After much success of our Host in the City event we decided to bring it back and start the new year with our HITC | Eco Fashion event. With NYFW around the corner we partnered with The Lion’esque Group and featured their client Queork as our eco fashion brand. The event was held at the Roger Smith Hotel pop up shop.

With Queork’s organic and green appeal we created designs to represent their brand by re-purposing and restyling natural elements and keeping the decor earthy but stylish. As the guest walked in they were instantly greeted by a floating flower installation showcasing terrariums with blooms and we also incorporated their products within our centerpieces. We love innovative products and even better if they are sustainable!

The room filled in quickly and guests were complimented with some wine and desserts. We decided to tie in Landó Peruvian Bistro organic pastries alongside delicious vanilla and red velvet cupcakes by Cupcakes by Jenn & Mel.

To add some fun we had amazing illustrations by Would Your Rock This?. All of the guest enjoyed being able to imagine themselves in their favorite fashion trend.

Queork is dedicated to all products made using genuine cork fabric. Their products are made with 100% cork fabric which is a handmade process of adhering thin slices of cork bark to fabric backing using beeswax. Cork is an extremely durable product and is naturally water and stain resistant. To the touch cork fabric is soft like suede or extremely soft leather. There are several patterns of cork fabric from natural to dark as well as mixed striped patterns.
