Some of the designers responsible for this year’s egg sculptures were Curtis Kulig, Cynthia Rowley, Marchesa, Jacques Torres, DCEVE for DKNY, Naeem Khan, Ralph Lauren, Jay Godfrey, Sarah Flint, Lela Rose and Warby Parker. The Faberge Big Egg Hunt kicked off on April 1st at 7AM and will run until April 17th at 11:59PM.

Throughout the hunt, participants will download The Big Egg Hunt app and use it to scan the code of each egg they find. Each week, participants are eligible to win a Fabergé precious gem stone pendant. Though the eggs are scattered throughout all five boroughs, we got a head start on our hunt by heading to Trump International Hotel & Tower to check out the three sculptures it is hosting. Naeem Khan designed the lustrous gold egg (pictured), interior designer Rachel Waldron crafted the modern “cracked egg,” and artist Minyan Huang constructed hers entirely out of folded dollar bills. If your personal egg count falls short of 260, though, not to worry—all the eggs will be placed in Rockefeller Center until Friday, April 25th for everyone to enjoy.
