Luxury Travel Store Mosafar Grand Opening

Luxury travel department store Mosafer, located on 57th street between 5th and 6th avenues in Midtown Manhattan, celebrated its Grand Opening Celebration on May 5th. I was there snapping away and taking a look around. If you need some James Bond style travel goods, this is the place. Their suitcases practically foldout into entire apartments. You can charge your phone off of them, carry clothing wrinkle free, not to mention how chic everything is. A little out of my price range (my luggage was all purchased at Primark - go figure) but hey I'm always open to gifts!

Props to Mosfer for hiring a totally random mime (Linwood Harcum) to spice things up. We need more of this at parties. Anna Wintour take note for your next Met Gala.....

Party goers....
