If you're broke, shameless, work in fashion, and have a costly handbag habit, plan to be at Taj on June 5 to mix and mingle with men in finance. That's right! A crop of six-figure earners from the likes of JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Fidelity are gathering next week, and they want to make you, fashion girl, their arm candy. (Because they're so hard to find elsewhere in this city.) Yes, it's as superficial as it sounds. The affair is the brainchild of nascent matchmaking organization Fashion Meets Finance. Its Website reads:
In a bar these two populations have to siphon through multiple unwanted encounters to find each other. FashionMeetsFinance facilitates destiny by purifying the dating pool bringing together only the most appealing populations in the New York dating game … Ladies, you no longer need to worry that the cute guy at the bar works in advertising.
Oh, how we love when someone out there on the Internet reads our minds! Hungry for more details? Check out Pocket Change to RSVP, surf pics of those who have already dipped into this "purified dating pool" (we spy Versace and Marc Jacobs gals as well as Condé Nasties on there), and watch a video of the slick-haired founder. He admits this is all very superficial but emphasizes that really, he's "giving back to society."
…We're going to go take a shower now.
