40 Years of Calvin Klein
The art and entertainment worlds came together to fete the iconic American fashion house’s 40th anniversary. The one-of-a-kind event was held in a space that hasn’t been open to the public in decades-on an elevated railroad structure in the West 30s-known as the High Line, which will soon become a park for New Yorkers.
