What: Nasiba Adilova hosts British fashion journalist and author Plum Sykes to celebrate her new book, Party Girls Die in Pearls

Where: Burberry boutique at NorthPark Center

PC Moment: It was a British invasion as Plum Sykes descended upon Dallas, drawing our city’s most fashionable top brass to toast her new tome and shop Burberry’s new DK88 bag collection.

Sykes, a former Vogue editor who also penned Bergdorf Blondes, is known for her witty chick lit. Chronicling a scandalous murder mystery at Oxford University in the ’80s, Party Girls is a must-read for the summer.

DK88, which debuted at London Fashion Week earlier this year, refers to the house code of Burberry’s signature honey-colored gabardine fabric. On display throughout the Dallas boutique, its butter-soft handbags are crafted in a new variation of the label’s classic trench leather and feature an oversize lock and sculptured handle.

Portions of proceeds from the evening were donated to TWO X TWO for AIDS and Art.

Burberry’s Party Girls (and Guys): Joyce Goss, Kimberly Whitman, Lisa Moore, Marisa HowardKathleen Hill, Lynn McBee, Tina Craig, Ellen Winspear, Sara Friedman, Rachel Roberts, Jennifer Klos, Neal Hamil, Anne Vincent, and Don Hall.
