A couple of weeks ago, I was in the Hamptons and attended some wonderful events. The first event was a Wimbeldon party hosted by Hedge New York, a women’s and men’s apparel brand for tennis and golf. The collections were beautiful featuring pocket detailing and the softest silk. Think classic fit polos and feminine, functional skirts and dresses. Hedge also collaborated with SOLDOUT NYC! on a few vintage-style, sporty t-shirts. I met Hedge’s co-founders Antonia DiPaulo and Megan Ouderkirk at the event along with their children. They were all wearing Hedge apparel perfectly. These women have such a creative and inspirational vision!
Next, I attended Amanda Selwyn Theatre’s Green Afternoon VII in East Hampton. Amanda Selwyn Theatre, founded in 2000, creates original and dynamic theatre. The annual celebration benefits the growth of Amanda Selwyn Theatre. It featured impressive interactive performances in an outdoor garden and unique art installations. It also showcased an excerpt of the dance company’s recent world premiere Crossroads. The dancers were incredible and you could really see their passion for the art. Amanda has a creative and inspiring vision for her company and I loved how the dancers combined athleticism, grace, and emotion in their performances. What an innovative idea!
The last event I attended in the Hamptons that weekend was SOFO’s 30th Anniversary Benefit. South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) is an acclaimed museum with nature exhibits and over 270 educational programs. These programs focus on nature conservation, sustainable energy, wellness, marine science, and more. The benefit was chaired by Eric Goode, Liev Schrieber, and Susan & David Rockefeller. It honored Dr. Demian Chapman, Trammel S. Crow, and Greg Manocherian. The benefit also featured a cocktail reception, a buffet, live auction, and music by In The Groove Band. Guests could also take Rolls-Royce Motor Car test drives during the event. Such a thrilling celebration for a worthy, sustainable cause!
