Coach's Marvelous Summer Carnival On The High Line

The Coach Summer Carnival on NYC's High Line was one of the most spectacular soirees of the Summer.

The luxury fashion themed carnival featured a fortune teller, dunk tank equipped with gorgeous male models, contortionist, jugglers and boardwalk games with Coach prizes. There was also an assortment of delicious carnival inspired drinks and food like mini burgers, hot dogs, popcorn and fish tacos.

The Celebrity studded A-list guest list included: Katie Holmes, Naomi Watts, Zachary Quinto, Connie Britton, Chrissy Teigen and Anna Kendrick.

100% of proceeds from the carnival's ticket sales went directly towards benefiting the upkeep of The High Line, a public park built on an historic freight rail line that is elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. The party was also meant to celebrate the Coach Foundation’s recent $5 million donation to The High Line.

My dear friend Alex extended his plus 1 invitation for me to come along with him to the Coach Carnival. Alex is always such a fashion plate. I’m constantly in awe of his fabulous style choices and he certainly didn't disappoint for the Coach Carnival as you can see! 

Katie Holmes, Naomi Watts and Connie Britton casually mingled on the couch. It was exciting to see these Hollywood stars just kick back and have a good time. I can only imagine the interesting conversations they were having. Exciting new movie project anyone?!

Gorgeous male models took turns sitting in the dunk tank as guests lined up to try their luck at ‘dunking’ them.

DJ KISS entertained guests with Summer’s hottest beats. You couldn't help but dance as you walked by the high-energy music maven. DJ Kiss aka JaKissa Taylor-Semple is a regular fixture at high-profile fashion, music, corporate, charity, and sports events.

One of the longest lines at the party was for the dream like psychic who ‘peered’ into the fortunes of excited attendees. I wish I had the opportunity to get my fortune told by her but unfortunately I didn't have enough time. 

A duo of talented contortionists impressed the crowd with mind bending tricks. I managed to capture one of their fun acts but there were many more that were just unbelievable.

Another impressive act was the hula hoop performer who twirled countless amounts of yellow, green and blue hoops around her waist. 

One of the most exciting elements of the Coach Carnival was of course the prizes! Guests had a chance to play and win an assortment of glamorous Coach accessories and fragrances.

I had such a phenomenal time at the Coach Carnival with my friend Alex. It was certainly one of the highlights of my Summer and truly one of the best parties that I've ever attended.
