There seem to be more functions around Stateside for the summer. On the wires earlier this month: Russian magazine Depesha and Nico & Adrian held a fund-raiser for Fashion:Aid, which the magazine established. Donated funds are to be divided among a number of HIV–Aids charities.
The Haute Summer cocktail reception took place in New York’s midtown, with a DJ set by Steve Narvaez and a live performance by Bella Saona. Champagne was by Piper–Hiedsieck (which seems to be sponsoring quite a lot of dos worldwide) and red caviar Russe. Guests included Robert di Mauro, Charlie Ross of Saga Furs, Reco Winn of Venexiana, Craig Hirschfeld of Estée Lauder, George Camany of Te’Casan, Lauryn McGee of Ford Models and Piper Carter, fashion photographer.
