Even though it might sound like a high school dance, don’t be fooled. Dossier’s “Homecoming” was nothing like a traditional spirit week.
Everyone in the biz has been so consumed with New York Fashion Week over the last eight days that we all nearly forgot it doesn’t last forever. Enter Dossier. The magazine’s ‘Homecoming’ event series was a five-day long celebration aimed at bringing the downtown scene back together to celebrate music, literature, film, and, of course, fashion. The intimate series of live concerts, discussions, readings, film screenings, and “happenings” kicked off last Saturday when Dossier celebrated the launch of their sixth issue featuring Freja Beha on the cover (the issue has also got a feature on it-girl-in-the-making Elle Fanning), and they capped off the week with one final hurrah.
To close out the tab at their pop-up space on Elizabeth Street, the magazine held a special screening of the film Roger’s Pass, followed by a visit from Elle’s Kate Lanphear, who hosted a cocktail hour that turned into an all-night dance party led by DJ Maar and Mayu Kondo. For hungry guests, there was even a taco truck.
The event was lighthearted, relatively small, and overall a well-executed reminder of the magazine’s core point–that the downtown scene is alive and well and not even the hustle and bustle of fashion week can break up their tight-knit community.
