Lately Coach has reinvented itself with a whole new collection. What better way to celebrate then to have a party!!!
Tuesday night, Coach hosted its 2014 edition of the Summer Party on the High Line in collaboration Friends of the High Line. It was a perfect night as we watched the sunset on the High Line and danced to music by DJ Kayper and a surprise performance by De La Soul. For his debut event as Coach’s new creative director, Stuart Vevers joined Coach CEO Victor Luis and President/Co-Founder of Friends of the High Line Joshua David, along with additional VIP guests for this beautiful summer night.
The annual Summer Party on the High Line is not only a celebration of the brand and the incredible new park that brings joy to New Yorkers and tourists alike, but of the amazing City that Never Sleeps. Exciting elements of this year’s party included design and décor nods to the decadent nightlife of the ‘70s. 100% of all ticket sales from the event benefits Friends of the High Line.
Friends of the High Line works to build and maintain an extraordinary public space on the High Line. We seek to protect the entire historic structure, transforming an essential piece of New York’s industrial past and inspiring new ways of thinking about the city, parks, public space, preservation, and community. We provide virtually all of the High Line’s annual operating budget and are responsible for the maintenance of the park, pursuant to a license agreement with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Through excellence in operations, stewardship, innovative programming, and world-class design, we seek to engage the vibrant and diverse community on and around the High Line.
Friends of the High Line is the non-profit, private partner to the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Friends of the High Line works with the City to make sure the High Line is maintained as a great public place for all New Yorkers and visitors to enjoy. In addition to overseeing the maintenance, operations, and public programming for the High Line, Friends of the High Line is currently working to raise the essential private funding to help complete the High Line’s construction and create an endowment for its future operations.
