Loyal shoppers and newcomers alike descended upon The Frye Company  at Ponce City Market last Thursday, September 15th to celebrate the arrival of the highly anticipated Modern Icons Collection during a private event.  Hosted by actress and modern icon Lauren Cohan, best known for her role as Maggie Greene on the hit AMC series The Walking Dead, guests were treated to Richland Rum cocktails, Wild Heaven Emergency Drinking Beer and local bites from The Mercury as they shop the new collection. With over 200 guests in attendance, Lauren remained tight-lipped about the highly anticipated Season 7 of The Walking Dead while she mixed and mingled, posed for pictures and talked about her love of fashion and Frye’s current collection and fall looks. Featuring a new range of men’s and women’s boots inspired by Frye’s heritage boot design, The Modern Icons Collection  simultaneously honors the original icon while being undeniably unique and of the moment.
