FNO DISCO DIVE PARTY

OAK’s Fashion Night Out Disco Dive party brought out droves of our friends (and some new faces) and everyone had one goal in mind: tear down the wallpaper made of 3000 dollar bills and stuff their shopping bags. Just kidding. OAK’s party was the only party in town to boast a wall covered in money (thanks to the guys of Ksubi who literally glue-sticked their budget on the wall), but that was only a small piece of the anything-goes style wildness that went down. Upstairs party guests danced to disco tunes, drank Screwdrivers, and mingled in a disco-ball and mannequined environment curated by Scott Bromley, the iconic architect behind Studio 54. San Francisco’s  The Seventh Heart delivered an amazing limited edition line of 1970s t-shirts featuring such iconic images as Bianca Jagger on horseback, Burt Reynolds bearing his butt cheeks, and Sylvester Stallone smoking (t-shirts which the OAK staff will be wearing for a long time.) Downstairs was a psych-rock/punk den which, in true fuck-all anarchist fashion, was wallpapered in money. People partying downstairs were treated to grittier, harder sounds and a cavernous environment that was reminiscent of CBGBs’ basement. Later on in the evening the incredibly talented Brooklyn chanteuse Tif B (whose debut album is coming out soon) serenaded guests with a 70s-style set that resurrected the spirit of the times. Even if you weren’t there check out some scenes from the party.
