A few weeks after catching up with designer Zac Posen at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, we returned to our home away from home — this time, for a luncheon celebrating fashion entrepreneur/star blogger Tina Craig and the debut of her handbags for Italian designer Gianfranco Lotti.
The collection of colorful totes, satchels, and shoulder bags launched online that very day, exclusively at Net-A-Porter. We jumped at the opportunity to co-host the event with Craig and fellow fashion fan Christen Wilson, along with Net-A-Porter, combining our Rolodexes to assemble an intimate group of power women.
Craig’s bags made the rounds, as did trays of iced sugar cookies depicting the collection. At each seat, perfect black Net-A-Porter boxes contained a coveted credit to the online retailer.
No doubt, everyone promptly logged in and ordered their favorite of Craig’s bags.
Who was there? Net-A-Porter’s Meagan Fleishman, Lydia Sorensen, and Emily D’Antonio, and guests Cindy Schwartz, Robyn Siegel, Meredith Land, Hanh Merriman, Sunie Solomon, Jessica Jesse, Vivian Lombardi, Olya Beal, Piper Wyatt, Eleanor Banco, and Jennifer Houghton.
