Not everyone can be so lucky as to have a Manhattan rooftop. Happily, for 10 days at least, those of us who are skyline-challenged can pretend we do at MINI Rooftop NYC, a new venue atop a seven-story warehouse that boasts an awesome schedule of parties and events just in time for Fashion Week. Opening nightcurated by the British style magazine Dazed & Confusedkicks off with a set by DJ Diplo and features synth-pop makers MGMT as headliners. Aside from yoga sessions in the morning and food and wine in the afternoon, highlights include a book-launch party for the fashion icon Verushka, a roundtable discussion with designers Steven Alan and Rachel Comey and the fashion collective United Bamboo, a fashion show with Edun (the clothing line founded by Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson), and DJ competitions.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Sept. 4. Continues through Sept. 13, 2008
