On Wednesday, September 28th, Teen Vogue hosted their Generation Next cocktail party. The event, held at the Moxy Hotel in Manhattan, was held in partnership with Motorola Razr to celebrate the latest class of Teen Vogue’s incubator program, Generation Next. Launched four years ago, the program aims to support aspiring designers through ongoing mentorship that provides resources and networking opportunities to bring their work to life. Unlike previous years of the program, for the first time Teen Vogue is enrolling a class of six additional winners as part of the Generation Next program, aptly named “Innovators.”
The night was filled with cocktails (named after Motorola cell phone settings, of course), photo ops and, of course, a stylish crowd. Attendees included Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Versha Sharma, actresses Minnie Mills, Shay Rudolph and Bailey Bass, along with several Generation Next alumni including Elena Velez and the six new Generation Next Innovator winners: Taylor Paige Garvin, Gianna Curcio , Adela Ramirez, Qianru Zhang, Juliana Heredia and Justine Gallo. Throughout the event, there were three screens provided by Motorola showing the winners’ sketches.
