Mod Men

| May 14, 2015 | Parties National

Mesmerizing men were the main event at the W Washington DC as friends of DC gathered to fete the magazine’s April Men of Style Issue. The dapper gents themselves—including Alex and Eric Heidenberger of The DC Restaurant Group; Tony Gyepi-Garbrah of the blog Gentlemen’s Brim; and Carl Ray, personal makeup artist to Michelle Obama—made the rounds at the packed party in the W’s Pinea restaurant, which featured masculine mixed drinks with Knob Creek rye and Foggy Ridge Virginia dry cider.

The city’s most stylish worked the room—including Kathleen Kennedy, president of luxury real estate firm Kennedy & Co.; Drs. Noelle Sherber and Arielle Rad of skincare center Sherber + Rad; and chef Nicholas Stefanelli of the soon-to-open Masseria— and admired the fashionforward suiting on display in The Tailored Man suite.


Man of Style Gyepi-Garbrah was one of the stars of the show, but he turned his camera on the party’s glam guests, snapping photos to post to his blog! Guests left with gift bags from Progressions Salon (though some stayed for an impromptu rooftop afterparty!). -Photos by Tony Brown
