Fashion enthusiasts from across Orange County flocked to South Coast Plaza to celebrate the grand opening of Weekend Max Mara’s first U.S. boutique. The stylish soiree, which was hosted by Lauren Wong and Lourdes Nark, featured sumptuous Italian bites, sparkling bubbly and expertly crafted cocktails, made with fresh fruit and custom ice cubes, and adorned with edible flowers. In the window, two live models in outfits from the Spring 2017 Collection showcased the brand’s elegantly effortless clothing and accessories, while attendees admired all the styles on display. Giving the evening an even more dynamic feel was a live DJ accompanied by two violinists playing a range of fabulous tunes, from contemporary to classic, while guests enthusiastically chatted and mingled during a true celebration of chic.
