This past Saturday, July 28th, Jill Zarin’s 6th Annual Luxury Luncheon took place for the first time at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton, presented by Architechnology Designs and in honor of her late husband, Bobby Zarin. The event, which lasted from 12-4pm, included an array of high-end beauty and fashion brands offering complimentary beauty treatments, gifts, discounts, and so much more. The event was produced by Brian Kelly and Sean Koski of Ticket2Events.
Guests, including myself, were treated to consultations from Architechnology Designs, a beauty bar featuring complimentary beauty treatments from XO8 Cosmeceuticals and Blush & Whimsy, designer truck shows from brands such as Avid Swim, and the opportunity to tour the brand new Rolls Royce. Gourmet catering was provided by Chef Adam C. Banks, NY Prime Beef, and Mark’s Quality Meats, as well as gourmet desserts by Rayo Events, a rosé bar by Whispering Angel and CW Distributing, two types of Sangria by Sangria Lolea, and craft cocktails from Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Select attendees also went home with a limited edition Quilted Koala rose gold gift bag filled with high-end products. I am in love with Quilted Koala, by the way, and already own three of their handbags and totes!
Notable guests at this year’s Lux Luncheon included Lauren Wirkus, Vicki Gunvalson, Dina Lohan, Heather McDonald, Kathy Wakile, Juliet Angus, Ally Shapiro, and LeeAnne Locken.
The afternoon went by so quickly as there was so much to see and do! One of my first stops was to learn about the fashionably functional water bottles by be bottle and to taste some healthy and delicious food by Daily Dose. I also had the opportunity to check out Kendra Scott’s newest jewelry collection. I also entered to win a one-of-a-kind Céline bag sold by Rebag. It is called the Rebag x Kendra Thomas RO$E Edge bag, a bright-white Céline Edge bag (originally valued at $2,600) recreated into an object d’art exclusive to Rebag.
Have a look inside my gift bag below. The tote just below gives you a peek inside what I received as gifts at the event with the coveted Golden Ticket. My favorites inside their East-West Lavender Bag included the book The Boy Who Opened Our Eyes, Kopari Beauty’s lip gloss, and the Dear Rain handbag poncho. My favorites from the event itself included:
- La Sirene’s Beauty Collagen
- The Spirit Box
- Ōura Ring, a personal wellness tracker
- Jean Pierre Cosmetic’s beauty products
- the caramel truffles and red velvet cake pops by Rayo Events
- the two types of sangria by Sangria Lolea
- touring the new Rolls Royce
This was an invite-only event with a limited number of tickets that sold, ranging from $1,000-$5,000. There was also the chance to win a ‘key to Jill Zarin’s closet’, a raffle item curated by the event producers, Ticket2Events, that was valued at over $30,000. Only one person won the raffle. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefitted Thyroid Cancer Research.
