Hello, New York! Thank you for the warm and rainy welcome yesterday. Today marks the anniversary of the day we all became New Yorkers, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the city and its people by being in the thick of it. 
This weekend’s festivities kicked-off with #29Rooms: a wild funhouse of interactive art-meets-fashion-meets-culture experiences, installations and performances with a little bit of virtual-reality and an epic pillow fight sprinkled in. All 29 rooms were hand-selected by Refinery29 and housed in a warehouse in Brooklyn.

We partnered with Refinery29 to bring to life a Fossil-inspired room called “A Cabinet of Curiosities”. Each keyhole posed a question, with a unique experience inside designed to pique curiosity and play. From optical illusions, vintage phones, funhouse mirrors, and a giant community sketchpad, party-goers found a surprise behind each door opened.
