Birdies Panties’ 500-square-foot storefront exudes lush elegance with high-end panties, jewelry, and designs from Marlies Dekkers. During chandelier parties, brides-to-be or birthday girls and their guests may sip champagne or cocktails, noshing on hors d'oeuvres or stringing them into high-fashion bracelets. While meandering through the space, visitors might observe antique oak cases or dip-dyed, gold-and-coral charmeuse curtains made by Joscelyn Himes, a colorist for Vera Wang. Persian rugs and a Venetian blown-glass chandelier purchased in New Orleans imbue the space with an exotic aura. Every summer, Birdies also coproduces the West 18th Street Fashion Show, inviting locals to listen to live music and view emerging designers’ fashions on an 80-foot runway.
