When TIGGA CALORE reached out and asked me to co-host her party THE TRINITY, I was down for the cause. Not only is she and CONTESSA on the pulse of New York City party culture…but I’ve also known TIGGA since the early 2000’s. Needless to say, we go as far back as to when her liquor sponsor, HYPNOTIQ, was popping.
The party took place in Midtown and although I don’t like to leave my 5 block radius, this trek was well worth it. After taking a frightening freight elevator ride, we checked in on one floor and walked a couple flights to the party floor. When I tell you that it felt like the New York that I knew when I first moved here, it did. Wild parties taking place in random spots with suspect, yet delicious and strong liquor punches. That sort of guerilla, underground style is hard to find in New York these days…but it’s a thing that needs to be preserved in any city!
V VILES was on deck documenting the event…and so was VASHTIE FILES! Check it out…
When I asked TIGGA what I should wear, she replied “FUR”. As a non-fan of fur, I ransacked my closet and found a furry friend that was gifted to me in Paris years ago…cue, my Louis Vuitton Mink Bag. I know, “if you’re not a fan of fur than why do you have this?”. Well, it was a gift and I have strong feelings about gift-giving…
I overheard someone explaining HYPNOTIQ and it just made my night…”it was a popular drink in the early 2000’s”.
it’s not a party until RAUL shows up!
