MANAGEMENT ISSUES: On Thursday night, Dazed and Confused hosted a party with a performance by MGMT to kick off the Mini Rooftop NYC series. “The creative class of New York,” as the publicists billed the crowd, relaxed before the flurry of fashion week with mini bottles of Champagne and DJ Diplo’s mix of Eighties tunes and Brazilian beats. Jessica Stam took a break from fittings to see the concert. “I’m excited to see my designer friends like Catherine Holstein and Alex Wang next week,” Stam said. Mary-Kate Olsen, in black Birkenstock heels, sipped Blue Moons while sprawling with friends on the series’ art installation, which resembles a cross between a grass tuffet and a jungle gym. The evening peaked when MGMT took the stage and played “Electric Feel” for a writhing, cheering crowd. And then the band inexplicably started throwing beer on the audience, at which point the crowd walked off, slightly confused, into the streets.
