A designer recently showcased her newest collection at New York Fashion Week with a bat mitzvah-themed party.

Susan Korn, the creative force behind the accessories brand Susan Alexandra, known for its beaded bags, threw the event at the Public Hotel in Manhattan to debut her first ready-to-wear collection for spring/summer 2020.

She told Vogue, “These are the clothes that I wish I could have worn to a bat mitzvah when I was 13 and what I still want to own now.”

The bat mitzvah-themed affair included bagels from the Manhattan shop where Korn held her last presentation, beaded yarmulkes and a pizza embellished with a ricotta Star of David.

At the show’s conclusion, an all-lesbian Klezmer band Isle of Klezbos performed and Korn’s models hoisted her in a chair for the hora dance.
