Last week, Rebecca escaped New York City’s nor’easter just in time to head west to meet her loyal customers at Saks Fifth Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. From 6 to 8 p.m., RM fans came from near and far (with their favorite Rebecca Minkoff handbag in tow), to meet Rebecca, shop her fall handbags and festive holiday clothing collection, and enjoy a multitude of beauty stations: Think mani bars in RM’s holiday colors, smokey eye makeup applications with a celeb makeup artist, hair braiding and henna tattoos. Guests enjoyed festive cocktails, appetizers and M.A.B.-shaped profiteroles while shopping and getting Rebecca’s autograph on their RM handbags and trademark blue and black polka-dot dust bags.
Party-goers also shopped for a cause: Rebecca Minkoff and Saks partnered with The Muscular Dystrophy Association for the event, donating a percentage of sales to the charity.
Following the in-store fun, the night unfolded at Curio–a speakeasy style restaurant and lounge in the German Village area of Columbus–with a cozy dinner and custom cocktails. Check out the photos below!
