New York – Sony Mobile Communications hosted the Sony Xperia Z launch party on Tuesday night at SoHo hotspot 214 Lafayette St. The five-story townhouse was transformed into a water oasis, featuring an underwater orchestra, a rain room photo booth and much more.

Over 200 people attended the exclusive event, including singer-songwriters Wynter Gordon and Melanie Fiona, models Natalie Suarez and Shaun D. Ross, and actor turned rapper Tristan Wilds (The Wire, 90210) among others.
Attendees noshed on sweet and savory passed hors d’oeuvres while sipping Patron and Ultimat specialty cocktails, while exploring the features of the water and dust-resistant Xperia Z smartphone. Celebrity socialite and DJ Hannah Bronfman spun tunes all night. The evening was topped off with a surprise musical performance by alternative rock band Passion Pit.
