Liz Goldwyn, Sophia Amoruso Celebrate The Wing's Forthcoming L.A. Outpost
The women-focused members club hosted a dinner in Los Angeles to celebrate the soon-to-open West Hollywood location.
On Wednesday nighmt The Wing’s co-founders Audrey Gelman and Lauren Kassan hosted a dinner with guests including Liz Goldwyn, Sophia Amoruso and Hollywood stylist Jamie Mizrahi at Fiona on Fairfax to celebrate the club’s impending Los Angeles opening and the announcement of The Wing’s new partnership with Time’s Up.
Since its founding in New York City in 2016, the female-focused members club has focused on forging a diverse community of women, trans and non-binary persons within its spaces — there are now three locations in New York City, one in San Francisco, one in Georgetown, and the West Hollywood outpost is scheduled to open mid-April with a star-studded list of founder members that include Busy Philipps, Mindy Kaling, Amandla Stenberg and Laura Dern, among others. Paris, London and Boston are next on the list.
Despite its millennial pink color palette, and much-hyped Beauty Rooms, the focus of the club remains on the professional, civic, social and economic advancement of women through community. Locations have hosted events with Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Stormy Daniels and Lorena Bobbitt, among others.
Now, the in-house multimedia platform (currently comprised of a magazine, podcast, and live-event experiences) seeks to expand The Wing’s community outside of the members-only spaces and into the wider world. "Through each issue of No Man’s Land, we’ve tried to chip away at the perception of The Wing and bring into sharper focus who The 'Wing woman' really is,” executive editor Deidre Dyer told The Hollywood Reporter. “This magazine is a conduit for the multitude of voices, presenting styles, and disparate narratives that actually populate our spaces and communities, and give face to the type of women we admire most.”
Copies of the company's latest edition of its magazine, No Man’s Land, were on display at the party and was simultaneously being toasted at a separate party in New York with its cover star Fran Lebowitz. The magazine is already available in over 12 countries and at stockists including Barnes & Nobles, Amazon Books and McNally Jackson in the U.S.; the current issue includes a diverse array of topics including interviews with actors Aidy Bryant and Jameela Jamil alongside Kamala Harris and Fran Lebowitz, a story about adaptogens, the ButchCamp aesthetic, and a visit with sculptor Genesis Belanger in her studio.
Going forward, Dyer says her plans for No Man’s Land include “showcasing the not-so-millennial pink shit, the swaggy people who work behind the scenes and the difficult conversations that people think we are not having.”
