Interior designer Ryan Korban is one of the downtown style set's biggest secrets—though not for much longer. The point of the party that Alexander Wang, Victoria Traina, and Natasha Poly threw for him last night at the Soho Grand was to sweep him out from under the carpet. "He does my office, he does my shop-in-shops, he does our showroom, he does my home," Wang said. "I don't think there's anyone like him—he's super-sophisticated and super-luxurious, but has an eye that's fresh." Traina, who's moving in a few months, and Poly, who's planning to buy on the West Side, both seemed eager to secure his services, too. "I really believe in accessories for the home—the art, the books," Korban said, in between repeat trips to the bar for his thirsty model friends. "You see people running around in T-shirts and jeans, but then they have the Alaïa shoes or the Hermès bag. I think they want to live the way they want to dress." Apart from a slouchy black beanie, though, his main accessory this particular night was handfuls of drinks.
