A profile of the legendary New York City nightlife promoter.
Though born and raised in Switzerland, Susanne Bartsch long ago become synonymous with NYC nightlife. Anthony&Alex pay tribute to the woman whose job is to make sure everyone else has an amazing time, following her from her home in the Chelsea Hotel – where else – to various events, always in eye-catching, creative outfits. At the same time, the occasion of a retrospective of her trendsetting work at the Fashion Institute of Technology provides the context for an even more fascinating consideration of her influence over the decades, including pivotal early work in AIDS awareness, given how tied she is to the gay community.
