Recently, I had the pleasure of being invited to my good friend Shane Markus' s parents 30th Anniversary Party for Starstruck Vintage Clothing Store. The affair was held at the exclusive Carnegie Club on 56th St. where guest surprised (see photo above) Mr and Mrs Joseph and Michele Markus upon their arrival. I was introduced to Rebecca Weinberg stylist to the stars who gushed about how cute I looked and was a delight to speak with. After we both were finished complimenting each other we discovered we both had the same pedigree and some mutual friends. I was then introduced to the spry stylish Mr Pete who owns the House of Savoia and invited me to come by his shop to peruse the greatness he creates. Pistol Pete as he is known has also designed for three Broadway productions and was with a lovely young lady in a fabulous Nicole Miller creation. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mrs Janice Lieberman and her husband business lawyer Steve Gerber. Janice as you know is a consumer anchor on the Today show and was very gracious as was her husband Steve.
As much I wanted to stay and meet everyone at this event I had another engagement to attend with client Karl Griggs editor in chief KRAVE magazine at the Fashion and Football event @ La Pomme hosted by Sinorice Moss of the Ny Giants sponsored by ABSOLUTE to beneifit the Moss Foundation. Lots of socialites, models and sports figures Danny Ware, Terrell Thomas ( NY Giants) and other VIPs were in attendance and enjoying the full atmosphere. This event was also being filmed for a reality series and topped off with a after party for Jay Alexander Martin. At the end of the evening it should have all been topped off by a night cap and reviewed positively but needless to say It did not end that way. My client Karl, De'von Christopher ( publisher of Bleu mag ) guest models Tristan and Lavantae decided to have a late dinner at The Cafeteria on 17th St where I was not only insulted by the waiter by being accused of not paying my bill, but then assaulted by their security personnel when I asked to see the manager more details on that later. Eventful night YES ! I would say. Well on to the next event remember to be fashion forward, be good to yourselves and not to step on someone else's dreams they could be apart of your destiny. God Bless
