This week-end, enjoy a tour in one of the most inspiring neighborhoods of Manhattan.
Design Week events typically include afternoon and evening exhibitions, product launches, panel discussions, art installations, and cocktail parties, all held in venues, stores, and restaurants around the Meatpacking District. The showcase happens every spring and is timed to coincide with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair.
If it is raining, stop by one of those numerous French bistros. I would recommend a morning Croissant at Pastis, or a late lunch with Tapenade Crostini and Tarte aux Pommes at Fig and Olive (a Mediterranean kitchen and olive oil tasting bar), or an evening Martini at Buddha Bar (sister to Buddha Bar Paris and a nightlife mecca for celebrities).
I also suggest to look for Spring sales at Calypso, Catherine Malandrino, or Christian Louboutin...
