Tell-Alls, Patricia Field and Empanadas…Oh My

Fashion and beauty are two industries that often intersect, and on May 6 two heavy hitters from each of these industries converged to create one super chic event.  Lora Condon most common pseudonyms are the “Beauty Buster” or the “Lash Doctor.”  A celebrity makeup artist and esthetician and expert, she is recognized for being an expert in the spa and cosmetic businesses.  Now Lora can add author to resume with SPA WARS: The Ugly Truth About The Beauty Industry.  SPA WARS is jocular memoir about the spa and beauty industries – it is part narrative, part cautionary tale.

One of NYC’s most iconic boutiques was the setting for SPA WARS coming out party.  Legendary stylist and fashion maven Patricia Field hosted a book signing at the House of Field and Salon, located on 302 Bowery Street, which also benefitted GLAAD, Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.   Guests enjoyed Chambord and Fris Vodka cocktails, ate empanadas to die for courtesy of Empanada Mama and listened the electro-rock sounds of DJ Sharri Model.  And what is an in-store event without the shopping, guests also had the opportunity to shop with a member of the Patricia Field Styling Team and received a 20% discount on clothes.  Good food, good drinks, a little shopping and gossip – sounds like the perfect Friday in the city to me.
