The art of parties and beyond

Dolce & Gabbana
Mar. 16: Dolce & Gabbana's fall offerings—rich in cashmere and velvet, not unlike the kind framing Vogue contributing editor Billy Norwich, seen left—have already made their appearances on the runway in Milan, but last week it was spring forward, fall back in New York when a mini-show of their current spring line took place at the Madison Avenue flagship. Except the 35-40 pieces in this show appealed to buyers of a different sort, shopping junkies Alex Kramer, Fabiola Beracasa, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Eleanor Ylvisaker and other unspeakably wealthy finance-media-entertainment-real estate progeny. "This is the first time I've seen the collection," a gushing Genevieve Jones told us, before mentioning a job with interior designer Carlos Mota, though we might not entirely believe the Louisiana-bred clotheshorse. But downstairs, at the post-show dinner, there was at least one bona fide new sighting: L.A.'s Brandon Davis, "bad boy" grandson of the late oil and entertainment billionaire Marvin Davis, not just in town but on the arm of new girlfriend Camilla al-Fayed (old flame: Mischa Barton). She, one of the hosts of the evening—along with Nina Davidson, Stephanie Winston (as in Harry) Wolkoff and D&G USA president Glenn McMahon—is said to be interested in fashion (is that what it's called when daddy owns Harrods?) and just celebrated her 21st birthday with a party during London Fashion Week. Another interest of the host committee seems to allergies. Yes, 10% of the evening's purchases went to the Food Allergy Initiative. Hmmm, let's see, the dessert was sorbet with no dairy in sight, and everyone is thin. Is this how the rich diet?
