Billy Reid boutique pulled out all the stops for a Southern-themed bash with music, American Spirit Whiskey, bites by Empire State South and of course stylish threads
A cocktail party to celebrate the arrival of Billy Reid
The brand new Westside boutique at White Provision of Alabama/NYC designer Billy Reid, decked out in the elegantly disheveled Southern aristocrat style. Think: worn leather armchairs, flea-market portraits and a bourbon bar. The highlight: dapper designs for men and women by Billy Reid.
Westside Provisionsand Atlanta Bearings Guide played host to a hip young crowd of fashion insiders, who feasted on bacon pimento cheese toasts and other Southern treats from Hugh Acheson’s Empire State South restaurant and sipped Atlanta-based American Spirit Whiskey libations. Live music entertained guests as they perused the racks of Southern-gent-meets-New-York-cool clothes. Billy Reid is the 2012 CFDA Award Winner for Menswear and the Atlanta boutique marks his seventh shop, with other locations in NYC, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Charleston and Florence, Alabama.
