Staff members at UMass Lowell organized a New York City visit for some of its most important alumns and patrons. The event was filled with trips to Broadway, dinners on the town and a cocktail reception at Tiffany. They kindly asked me to photograph this last event.
It was my first time stepping into Tiffany on 5th Avenue. What an impressive space! The downstairs is massive and beautifully laid out. Upstairs, there is a private salon filled with a smaller but impressive selection of jewelry. This, they reserved for the occasion.
It was the perfect intimate space for the event. Guests mingled and chatted about the future of the university while enjoying champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Of course, it wouldn't be an evening at Tiffany's without donning fancy jewelry, which the staff at Tiffany's was more than happy to oblige. This invariably elicited oohs and ahhs (and the occasional shriek) from onlookers and added another fun element to the gathering.
