The Last Hurrah
EBay helps Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild toast their twelfth issue
"It's like a high school reunion almost," exclaimed Phillip Lim at The Last Magazine dinner at Indochine last night. The designer was tucked into a booth with friends Richard Chai, Prabal Gurung, and Last's Tenzin Wild, all out to toast the downtown biannual's twelfth issue—a typically incisive mix of new talent (Kelela, Josef Salvat) and supers re-envisioned (cover girl Daria Werbowy). The crowd was also there to celebrate the last days of New York fashion week, of course. "I consider this Last dinner like the congratulations, because you see all your colleagues, your friends," Lim continued. "You actually see everyone in their natural state, not in a hyper state. It's literally like the last celebration."
That was truer than ever last night, with Winter Storm Pax looming. After dinner, Thakoon Panichgul, Eddie Borgo, Anja Rubik, and Lindsey Wixson—full fur coat and all—took to their feet for some between-table dancing. "The whole point from the beginning was working with all our friends," Wild's cofounder, Magnus Berner, told Style.com. "Six years down the road, we're still supporting each other. Now, we're also doing WSJ., but it's also brought some new life into The Last Magazine."
