This past Thursday, we kicked off NYFW with Cinq à Sept for their Ready to Wear SS18 collection on the newly renovated roof of The Beekman Hotel. We helped to evoke the dreamy feel of a small traveling Italian circus with our Lollipop Aerialists, Hoop Jugglers, Ballerinas and the ballerinas. Here we are on pg. 25 of the New York Daily News!
Wow! What. A. Weekend. We kicked off the two day celebration, at Capitale in downtown on Friday night with a bang to swing and revel in some prohibition era style for the 2nd Annual Great Gatsby Party! Amongst the flappers and dandies, Shien Artists provided all of the entertainment bringing to life the decadence of the roaring 20's— swing dancers, beautiful burlesque, ladies hanging from the ceiling, contortionists, jugglers, more feather fans than anyone could count, and even a mermaid!
Here's the extended cut! But don't forget to check out our social media as well @ShienArtists - Plenty of gorgeous photos & videos from this and other past events to be found!

"In December 2015, the Great Gatsby Party® transformed the gilded halls of New York City’s Capitale for the very first time. Nearly 2,000 guests turned up for the sold-out event, outfitted in the fashion of the Roaring Twenties--flapper dresses, silk gloves, tuxedos, top hats--to revel the night away under swinging aerialists and the glitter of disco balls. This year, by popular demand, the Great Gatsby Party returns for a two-night affair of the booze, fanfare, and decadence that so defined Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel.
Brought to you by the founders of La Nuit en Rosé and Pinknic, 2016’s Great Gatsby Party will take place on the evenings of December 2 and 3 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Capitale will once again play host to the event, bedecked in the elegant grandeur of the era. Similarly inspired by the 1920s, entertainment is scheduled throughout the night, with live music, theatrical acts, dancers, stilt walkers, and more.
The evening is sure to be a celebration of all the senses, with champagne flowing, spirits well-stocked, and an array of sweet treats specially prepared by a local bakery. So this December, put on your black tie finery and hit the town with us. Everyone will be talking about this Great Gatsby Party well after the lights come up." The Great Gatsby Party
