In celebration of our #BarneysShoeStories series, last night we hosted an event alongside designer Gianvito Rossi and co-hosts Zolee Griggs, Georgie Flores, and Nicole Yoone. The Beverly Hills flagship’s main floor was buzzing with music and shoe shopping, as guests posed for “shoe-fie” photo ops.

Against a backdrop of colorful Gianvito Rossi styles, attendees also enjoyed cocktails and light bites, and a few lucky raffle winners went home with a new pair of shoes. The designer signed sketches of heels for fans, and an embroiderer was also on hand to personalize shoe bags. The West Coast crowd was filled with friends of the co-hosts, as well as fashion influencers, models, and actors including Katelyn Tarver, Keith Powers, and Salem Mitchell.

Scroll on for more party highlights, and then head over to to discover Gianvito Rossi’s elegant collection.
