Event Report: On the Verge at CUSP

by Kikanza Harris

Combine one DJ, a pink carpet with picture-snapping paparazzi, cocktails and snacks; a beauty bar with make-up artists serving up smokey eye perfection and refreshing bold red lips to attendees; add in the latest fashions from designers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Theory, Derek Lam and Rebecca Minkoff and you’ve got On The Verge.

On the Verge CUSP Event

Gold Fringe was in attendance at the On The Verge shopping event in Neiman Marcus’ CUSP boutique hosted by Refinery 29 and Chicago blogger Liz Schneider of Sequins and Stripes. CUSP is the answer to a boutique experience—a hip space, leading designers, an expertly curated collection, but with all the conveniences of a department store. And though the CUSP experience is expanding beyond its fashion forward approach of online and select free-standing boutiques, to soon be included in all Neiman Marcus stores, Chicago is lucky enough to be home to one of its current choice locations.


Check out some CUSP items we’re coveting…
