Gnossem at Maserati of Manhattan
On Saturday night, I had the opportunity to attend the Gnossem in New York event sponsored by Maserati of Manhattan. Gnossem is an online retailer that features Asia’s greatest compilation of luxury independent designers. This event was the first time that Gnossem has previewed their collection in New York. The founder and director of Gnossem is Lisa Crosswhite. Prior to founding Gnossem, Lisa was also an international fashion model, as well as a Brand Strategist for Ogilvy & Mather. Gnossem was created “to have a forum where anyone could buy a unique artisanal fashion piece, without having to scale countries, cities, and side streets, for the designer's one boutique.” (Lisa Crosswhite)
Lisa was such a gracious host and the event was truly amazing. The atmosphere had high energy and the place was filled. It was a great turn out. The clothes were so beautiful. Rather than have a traditional fashion show, Lisa brought each model out one by one to explain about the designer and each garment. I’m so grateful that I was able to attend and cover this event thanks to Tami Reed. Below are a few of my favorites from the night. Enjoy!
