BDNY Bound, and We are Ecstatic!

New York, New York or bust!

Our annual journey to BDNY is almost here, and “excited” is a total understatement. Last year, we were honored to be recognized as finalists at the show. We spent our time meeting new designers and finding inspiration from conversations with 8,000+ attendees.

One of our favorite things about BDNY is the setting. New York City in November. It doesn’t get much more whimsical than that! We think that Audrey Hepburn would agree, given her longtime affair with the big city.

Not only did we find some inspirational footage of Audrey in NYC, we also discovered some places that are must-visits for our upcoming trip. After all, no play and all work makes Jack(ie) a dull gal, right? Here’s to hoping we can squeeze it all in!

Let’s review what we found, shall we?

New York City, Audrey Style

Audrey Hepburn had a lifelong love for The Big Apple. From filming on-location scenes for her movie roles to shopping and fashion appearances, it is clear from this history-in-photos that Audrey was a true fan of NYC.

Audrey Lane’s NYC To-Do List

Our fingers are crossed that we find some time to explore at least one or two of these amazing experiences while we do our thing at BDNY. No matter what, we are definitely going to book a separate trip back to ensure that we get all of the Audrey Hepburn x NYC our hearts can handle!

Audrey [Street] Style

Apparently, this gem of a mural is on Mulberry Street in Little Italy. Is it coincidence that you can indulge in Audrey’s favorite (pasta) on the same street you can have this view? We think not!

Hudson Bar & Books

This historical spot is perfect for the likes of Audrey’s personality; intimate, quiet, and offering an impressive variety of scotch (another Hepburn favorite).

L’Artusi Restaurant

Nestled in the heart of Manhattan, this Italian eatery would surely have impressed Audrey. From their famous spaghetti to their plethora of wine options, the only thing missing is a little black dress!

Auction House

Located in the Upper East Side, Holly Golightly (aka Audrey Hepburn) lived in a brownstone here for the film ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’ Auction House is a quaint bar with a no-denim dress code, sure to keep the aesthetic as sophisticated as the space itself.

Madison Avenue

This one is last, but certainly not least - only because we doubt we’ll have time for shopping with all of the excitement that BDNY has to offer. However, it is on the list for our separate Audrey fangirl trip! Shopping on Madison Avenue must include a trip to Givenchy, the same location where Audrey’s little black dress was from!
