Swimwear designer Caitlin Kelly debuts monokinis, convertible bikinis and more in FiDi
Miami isn’t the only stage for fashion this summer. Preeminent New York City developer TF Cornerstone recently hosted a much buzzed about runway show with rising star swimwear designer Caitlin Kelly, as she debuted her inaugural collection before a crowd of 200 fashion icons and trendsetters. Held on the rooftop of the distinguished 2 Gold Street, TF Cornerstone’s 51-story tower in the Financial District, the sneak preview event kicked off the busy summer season.
“I am amazed with the turnout for my first ever solo runway show,” said Caitlin Kelly. “It was such a success and the views from the rooftop of 2 Gold Street were phenomenal; this was truly the perfect setting to launch my collection.”
On the building’s stunning 9,000 s/f roof deck, surrounded by spectacular 360-degree views of downtown Manhattan, Kelly introduced 26 styles from four “mini collections” Maritime, Sarawatti, Morgandy and Naim. Models hit the runway wearing Kelly’s namesake convertible bikinis, monokinis, one-pieces and cover-ups in advance of the designer’s official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week debut this July in Miami.
“TF Cornerstone was delighted to welcome Caitlin Kelly Designer Swimwear to the rooftop of 2 Gold Street for a sneak preview of her 2013 collection – it was the perfect way to celebrate the start of summer,” said Sofia Estevez, Executive Vice President of leasing for TF Cornerstone. “Her line is as fresh and exciting as the Financial District.”
The Financial District has become Manhattan’s fastest-growing residential neighborhood. In the past few years alone, FiDi has morphed from a ‘laborhood’ into a lively 24/7 neighborhood replete with fine dining options – such as Captial Grille, Financier Patisserie and Cipriani Wall Street – and high-end retail destinations including Tiffany & Co. and Hermes. What’s more: residents of 2 Gold Street enjoy easy access to 14 subway lines and a heliport just steps away.
Located in the heart of this thriving residential area, 2 Gold Street comprises 839 upscale residences with floor-to-ceiling windows, and boasts an enviable array of amenities. In addition to the expansive roof deck and solarium – which features café style seating, gazebo and real grass lawn – residents have access to a heated lap pool, 13,000 s/f clubroom with indoor/outdoor recreation area, relaxing landscaped courtyard, fully equipped fitness center, children’s playroom, 24-hour concierge and onsite parking.
