Outside of Bungalow 8 on 27th between 10th and 11th
Last Thursday night at Bungalow 8 Nicky Hilton threw a party to launch a special collection for Samantha Thavasa New York and to give a sneak peak of the Bungalow Bag. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the bags will be donated to the Free Arts for Abused Children Foundation.

Nicky began designing for Samantha Thavasa in 2001 and has since produced two collections. The handbags are sold at fine specialty stores in the U.S. and Japan including Fred Segal, Henri Bendel, and Atrium and her handbags already have a strong celebrity following such as Britney Spears, Tara Reid, Pamela Anderson, sister Paris, and Rhea Durham.
