Masks Are Mandatory

Marc Jacobs hosted his annual company holiday party at Gotham Hall. The theme was Venetian Carnivale, and guests got into the spirit with an extravagant display of elaborate costumes.




Venetian festivals are held in cities in Europe and North America. They are based on carnival, or carnevale, the period just before Lent, as celebrated in 1600s in Venice, Italy. Venetian festivals re-create the fantasy of the earlier events with food, costumes, masks, music, theater, juggling and other spectacles. The masks and costumes are worn by people who often travel from other countries to attend and perform (or parade) in these festivals. The elaborate costumes and masks are handmade by artisans from various countries. Many involve male and female or group versions and are based on old Venetian characters and costumes.

Nickname for New York City; Washington Irving gave the name Gotham to New York City in his Salmagundi Papers (1807). A village in Nottinghamshire, England, associated in folklore with insanity. A fictional city, the hometown of Batman.
