In celebration of the launch of her new mobile-shopping concept, Velvet Slipper Divine founder Vivian Wise threw a fabulous fairytale- and circus-themed fete at the Corinthian—and invited hundreds of her closest friends. Partial proceeds from the party went to Bering Omega Community Services.
Wise recruited event planner Rebekah Johnson, models dressed as Prince Charming and Snow White, and DJ Lady Bunny to help bring her “night circus” vision to life. She circulated around the room informing partygoers of her new venture, in which an Airstream trailer—Wise named the unit Babette—has been reimagined as a mobile boutique. Babette can be booked for private parties and offers add-on amenities like live music and Champagne.
Guests, including Mickey Rosmarin, Carolyn Farb, and Houston magazine’s Isabel David and her husband Danny, enjoyed bubbly poured out by aerial bartenders, and snacked on theme-inspired offerings like soft pretzels and flavored popcorn. –Photos by Jenny Antill
