Socially Scene was on site this past Saturday for The Design Museum "Five" Gala at the W Hotel to celebrate five years. It was a creative black tie event to say the least. The guests were draped in ball room attire that was "redesigned" to suite the affair. It was amazing to see what The Design Museum has done for the city of Bos- ton and fun is an under: statement for the dynamics of the evening. The live band, signature cocktails, silent and live auction, it was just one fabulous evening.
