In true Harlem Haberdashery fashion, the famed boutique threw a grand masquerade ball benefitting The League: A Distinguished Gentlemen Movement, Inc at The Harlem Stage Gatehouse.
Guests were dressed to impress in swanky ball gowns and suits with lavish masquerade masks that kept their identity mysterious. We filled up The Harlem Stage Gatehouse dancefloor ready for a festive night celebrating Harlem's greatest visionaries.
Halfway through the night, Harlem Haberdashery honored some of these visionaries that that have been striving to help keep Harlem a culturally significant piece of NYC history. Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, Syderia Asberry-Chresfield & Y.U.N.G. Harlem, a nonprofit organization that positively leads NYC youth by example, were all recognized and given awards.
Afterwards, the dancefloor heated up again with the "Wobble" and other great hits that got everyone up out of their seats and ready to party the night away!
The chic and mysterious night brought people together from Harlem and beyond to not only have a good time, but to also help benefit The League, a nonprofit organization that empowers and educates young men of color in New York City. Honorees and guests all had an entertaining night filled with music, laughs, drinks and dancing! This was Harlem Haberdashery's first annual ball and we hope to see more in the future!
