With eyes on the bright lights of New York City’s NFL Draft beginning today, celebrities and athletes have been painting the Big Apple Red with a myriad of exclusive parties going down in the city that never sleeps. ESPN, who has been known to throw some pretty lavish parties in the past leading up to the draft pulled out this year.

That’s okay. The show went on!

Schuyler 4 Ltd and D4SM held a VIP Gifting Suite Party held at a Chelsea luxury apartment on Tuesday. Angela Simmons, Teyana Taylor, Walter Thurmond of the New York Giants, Plaxico Burress and NFL first round draft prospects Morgan Moses and Calvin Pryor were some of the many in attendance at the star-studded event. It was a house party that Kid ‘n Play would have envied. When you first walked into the apartment, glass cases were on display with cheese doodles constructed in the shape of what resembled Epcot Center’s Ball at Disney World.


Somebody get Mickey and Minnie on line two! That’s too cool.

The big draw to the star-studded event was definitely the VIP Gifting Suite for NFL Draft picks, athletes, agents, and publicists. It offered a celebrity and consumer, integrated marketing experience in the athletic space with a tasting by Louis XIII, catering by Gardein, and other luxury products. Some of the other company’s in attendance included: Magellan Jets, Arthur George, Art Matic, Frava, Carl Gross, Kamasutra, Haupt, Chateau D’esclans, and Michael Duru Clothiers.
