Project Cobalt celebratedÂ its rapidly growing style initiative at Â the always charming, Soho House Club Room, Â amongst a crowd of fashion influencers and industry insiders. Hosted by Street Etiquette and Led by All Beuy’s Club, a group that partners with designers across multiple categories of fashion, the event offeredÂ an intimate evening filled with melodic conversations and chill vibes. Guests looked on intrigued as DJ May Kwok filled the room with mixes and the first Project Design Lab collection was officially presented.
Project Cobalt is a way of bringing people together through the power of creative collaboration. The Project Cobalt style initiative is broken up in to two parts — the first is an Accelerator Program that involves emerging designers and the second is the Design Lab that involves established brands / designers. The Accelerator Program curriculum led by Jeff Staple and Liza Demeyrjian takes growing designers through different aspects of the fashion business and gives them exposure to fashion veterans such as Steven Alan, Denise Williamson, Parke Lutter and Ronen Jehezel. These designers will collaboratively create the first-ever Project Cobalt Accelerator Program capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2015.
The first collaboration in the Project Cobalt Design Lab is The Black Ivy capsule collection by Street Etiquette. This collection is just a small taste of what’s to come from Project Cobalt’s collaborations with established brands and designers come January.
