during last week's hoopla of new york fashion week ace hotel teamed up with i-d magazine to throw a party to celebrate the audacious style and creative contributions of hipster londoners in new york city. a hand-picked group of invitees gathered at liberty hall, the hotel's basement event space to have a cozy get together. simultaneously an exhibit of classic i-d covers opened at the property's gallery space. i-d covers have been known to catch the moment when the imaginative power of a collection of creative geniuses comes together. as a result some of these covers have gained iconic status instantly, while others reveal themselves upon reflection years later. this showcase represents the magazine's journey to date through a curated series of milestones, with a video component on the creative process behind the covers [on through sep 27]. location: 20 west 29th street [nomad].
