Our Top 50 Designers party, held at Ralph Pucci International, celebrated each and every designer on New York Spaces’ Top 50 List for 2017 to a resounding success. We are proud to honor the best and brightest in design for the tenth time—you inspire the world with your excellence, and we are thrilled to celebrate your talents. Our deepest thanks to everyone helped make these festivities possible and the design world so special. Sincere appreciation goes to Ralph Pucci International, whose generosity and support is beyond measure. We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, Benjamin Moore, Cambria Quartz, Halstead and VDKA6100—for helping us make the uncommon industry to which we belong—unforgettable. "We are also celebrating joining forces with MOD Media—our new venture together is a design force. A luxury and design collaboration for all the titles will be great to better serve the luxury brand advertising community as well as our readerships." -Jason Kontos

The gallery showcased fashions by Jessie Sodetz—a young Pratt graduate—on Pucci's artful mannequins, and designs by Pierre Paulin, Xavier Lust, Hervé van der Straeten, Richard Meier, Patrick Naggar, India Mahdavi, Eric Schmitt, Paul Mathieu, Michael Anastassiades, Fran Taubman, Jim Zivic, Chris Lehrecke, and Andrée Putman to name a few. Works by John Koga, Jens Risom, bronze lighting by Philippe Anthonioz, Murano glass vases by Fabio Micucci, and designs by Elizabeth Garouste, and Nina Seirafi were also highlighted.

"It is an honor to collaborate with New York Spaces and Jason Kontos for the 10th anniversary Top 50 Designers event. Jason has been a leader and trailblazer of new ideas for many years, always searching and welcoming new talent and names to keep the issue fresh. I have showrooms in LA and Miami, too, but NYC is still recognized globally as the frontrunner of the design world so it is both very comforting and exciting to welcome the top 50 NYC designers to my showroom." -Ralph Pucci.
