Sensation Comes to NYC

When I was invited to Sensation, the world’s leading electronic dance music event meets White Party, I had no idea what to expect. I scrambled in my wardrobe for anything and settled on my only white options of a Sachi + Babi dress, vintage white bootie shoes and an offwhite Rebecca Minkoff bag (arguable the only white I won).

Prior to coming to the Big Apple, Sensation was a purely Euro-only event — and judging by the crowd, many ventured over. Hosted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, it felt like I walked into a legit rave. Greated at the door by a group of stunning ladies dressed in white with beaded necklaces and red lipstick we were given our green bracelets and escorted to the American Express 40/40 VIP Lounge.

We walked onto the floor and it was this incredible view of thousands of people dancing around these lotus flower shaped fountains and DJ booth. You can see the theme of different elements pouring through the stadium.

The party was insane! You really see it all in New York, and yet this was a first. An organized party at this scale, where everyone was dressed in white felt like something from another planet — or rather as it was themed, “Innerspace”.
