On any given Thursday afternoon you may find our team at a fashion show, market appointment, designer collection luncheon, or—on a slightly less glamourous level—at our desks, diligently planning new and exciting things to come. However, this past Thursday, we traded in our workday heels and bluchers for kicks and and headed over to Norman’s Landscape in Central Park for an end of summer bash filled with rest & relaxation, bonding, yoga, and some good ol’ fashioned field games. The team enjoyed nibbles from Freds as they cheered on their coworkers who braved their chance at ultimate tug of war domination (title of MVP is still up for debate at our office). Although, looking at these photos, it’s clear it was a win for all who attended.
