While most of New York was glued to a TV screen Sunday evening, for a little event called the Super Bowl, the New York Fashion Week party scene trudged ahead. One wouldn’t have known there was anything else going on Sunday inside Jac’s on Bond, where technical knitwear brand Dodiee was throwing a cocktail party.
A Super Bowl Sunday fashion week bash has inadvertently become something of a Dodiee tradition, given the one-and-a-half-year-old brand has now hosted two, designer Elisa Dahan recalled.

Guests at Jac’s on Bond included Ava Phillippe, daughter of Reece Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe, who is quickly becoming a fashion week regular; models Daria Strokous, Alexina Graham, Ajani Russel, Anita Jane, Alana Zimmer, Jessie Li, Keke Lindgard, Lauren Searle, Madhulika Sharma, Palak Gupta, Pania Rose and Veronica Webb; stylists Solange Franklin and Alexis Badiyi; and actresses including “Halston” star Krysta Rodriguez and “Gossip Girl” actress Anna Van Patten. Other attendees included Eny Lee Parker, Maayan Zilbermann, Noot Seear, Racquel Chevremont, Tara Thomas and Woldy Reyes. The night was cohosted by former Vogue writer Liana Satenstein, who conducted video interviews for the brand in a corner.
Dodiee, which Dahan named after her mother, combines knitwear and shapewear using patent-pending technology to create form-sculpting sumptuous knits, which were worn by many of the night’s guests.
Kiwi-topped cocktails were served as “Stacy’s Mom” played overhead in the private back room, though models couldn’t resist dipping out into the main bar space where the pool table sits and indulging in a game (or a photo-op moment, at least).
