Over 60 media figures and influencers attended the party to celebrate Ettinger’s flagship residency at Turnbull & Asser’s legendary New York Townhouse in the heart of Manhattan alongside the event's British sponsors Last Drop Distillers and Exmoor Caviar.
Editors from GQ, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Gear Patrol, Fortune, Robb Report and the like mingled with representatives from the two royal warrant-holding British brands.
"We're delighted to welcome Ettinger to the Turnbull Townhouse,” says Turnbull & Asser Owner, James Fayed. “We love everything they stand for, and the quality of their work is unrivalled. There's a brilliant synergy between the two brands and they are the perfect addition to join us here in New York,” he adds.
