The Teen Lounge NYFW Kickoff Party took place in New York City with a bang. The event was organized and curated by Paradise Fun Factory in collaboration with Teen Vibes Magazine as part of their tenth-anniversary celebration. This year’s NYFW was taken to new heights with the addition of this exciting party. The Teen Lounge NYFW Kickoff Party provided a stage for today’s rising young stars to showcase their incredible talents through spectacular musical performances and eye-catching fashion displays. Attendees were treated to a night full of excitement and awe with exciting performances, red-carpet arrivals, press interviews, and everything that’s included in the lively NYC nocturnal lifestyle – making it an unforgettable evening for all who attended. 

Actor Ryker Baloun and Co-Founder of Teen Vibes Magazine, Mia Nina acted as announcers for the event. Thanks to the friendship they built all those years working together, they enhanced the overall positive vibes of the event. I would like to add some of the guests that attended too: Stephen Sharer started the night with his hit song live performance “TikTok Cutie.” New York Local Jules Walcott enchanted the audience with her marvelous voice. Currently performing in LA, it was great to see her back in her hometown. 

Victoria Dennis delivered a fascinating show alongside her dancers. Her unique music style and raw charisma offer an experience like no other. Peter Cestaro added his high-octane energy to the evening, sharing closely with his fans. Indi Star gave a mind-blowing performance of her unreleased new song “Too Good for You,” surprising everyone with her edgy style. McPlayGT showcased his latest song “idontwannafallinlove,” which was released openly to the public after the event. Sawyer Sharbino brought his positive energy to the stage with the performance of his latest release “3:30.” Veronika Kostei performed for the first time on stage two of her most intimate songs; the crowd went wild when they listened to her music. 

The night ended wishing happy birthday to DJ Alden Song who just turned 18. Alden’s chill personality and creativity are the driving forces behind his mixes. He recently worked on EDM versions of songs sung by the previously mentioned Indi Star and Sawyer Sharbino. 

Overall, the event was a massive success! To raise awareness and support for the unhoused community, bestselling teen author Jahkil Jackson from Project I Am teams up with Lilly Ketchman from Dance Moms at The Teen Lounge event, fusing philanthropy and entertainment. “We’ve been revolutionizing entertainment for New York families for a decade, and our partnership with Teen Vibes Magazine for The Teen Lounge is a testament to our commitment to providing unique and dynamic experiences,” stated Jenny Song, Principal at Paradise Fun Factory. “This event is the embodiment of our vision to create a space that resonates with our global community in a way that can’t be found anywhere else.” 

Influencing Gen Z entertainment over the past decade, Paradise Fun Factory has consistently set new standards in the industry. With awards from Time Out Kids as “Best Dance Parties For Kids in NYC” and New York Magazine’s “One Of The Reasons To Love New York,” they have also managed to make strong partnerships with important brands such as GRYT, Diesel, Vans, Gap amongst many others thanks to this they have managed to achieve their goal of giving young voices a chance to express themselves. They are dead set on ushering in a New Era of Youth Talent set to be the highlight of New York Fashion Week, showcasing the junction of teen talent and fashion in a brand new perspective.
