Ray-Ban utilized all 8,000 square feet of Stage37 for a bash dubbed "District 1937"—named for the garment district as well as the year the brand was founded. The event was held to celebrate the remake of its iconic Wayfarer style in new materials. Individual vignettes highlighting each of the five specially-treated models (i.e. denim, leather, steel, titanium, and velvet) were created to showcase the sunglasses as well as examples of their composition properties. A large rectangular grey space, for example, featured the kinetic steel sculptures of Anne Lilly.
