Yesterday, we began our 40th anniversary festivities at West Edge on the High Line. Artist and Girls star, Jemima Kirke, fashion editors, style bloggers, buyers and a few Hanky Panky friends and staffers were in attendance to say “Cheers to 40 Years of Hanky Panky!”

Headlining the event were Hanky Panky co-founders Gale Epstein and Lida Orzeck, as well as acclaimed illustrator, lifestyle blogger and Hanky Panky collaborator, Dallas Shaw. This Fall, Hanky Panky & Dallas Shaw are launching a beautiful collection of lingerie in celebration of Hanky Panky’s 40th anniversary. This collection was showcased on models throughout the night. Ms. Shaw also hand-painted watercolor portraits of attendees at the Story + Rain VIP Lounge.

Guests sipped our signature cocktails, the Hanky Panky Handshake (a vodka and thyme lemonade) and the 40 & Fab (a pink lemonade margarita), and snacked on trendy bites, while listening to the musical stylings of DJ Stef Nava.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the event.
