On Thursday, October 12th, The Groom Shop by Michael Andrews officially opened our doors to the public with a grand opening event. The affair’s attendees included socialite and influencer Olivia Palermo, former New York Rep. Max Rose, celebrity stylist Venk Modur, and menswear influencers Zach Weiss and Brian Sacawa, who were dressed in The Groom Shop’s signature evening jackets. The Groom Shop’s Advisory Board Members, Eyal Tessler, Ryan Hill, Gabrielle Hurwitz, Veronica Joy Gurl, and Julie Sabatino, were also in attendance.

The event was supported by The Dalmore, which sponsored specially crafted cocktails, and David Beahm Experiences, which furnished the event’s tropical floral arrangements. Marcia Selden Catering supplied delectable refreshments, which included themed tuxedo jacket cookies. The music of the night was courtesy of DJ Harkness Granger of Jarrell Entertainment, and guests were treated to color matching services by acclaimed makeup artist Jamie Melbourne from Apostle Men. Atelier Fern brought further dimension and volume to the space with a dramatic presentation of its new Bridal Week collection.

While the event was an exciting introduction to The Groom Shop for all, it also served as a joyous conclusion to Bridal Fashion Week for many of the foremost movers and shakers in the wedding industry. The excitement from the week prior was palpable in the studio, and attendees spilled out onto the street to further connect in the beautiful autumn evening air.

We look forward to many more celebrations in our future!
