52 FOR ALL TURBANS BY CHRISTINA GEYER T he first time I met Wes Gordon was some- time in 2012. The young designer was in town to show his recently launched name- sake collection to a high-profile contingent of ladies during an evening trunk show and cocktail party. Being the youngest people in attendance, Gordon and I bonded. Cut to a perfect spring evening seven years later: Gordon was back in town for the first time since that visit, but with a bigger title (he was made creative director of Carolina Herrera in 2018) and an even larger following of stylish ladies. Nasiba Adilova, Taylor Tomasi Hill, and Lisa Moore hosted the darling Gordon for a moveable evening that started with a champagne toast at Carolina Herrera's Highland Park Village boutique, followed by an intimate dinner on the Moroccan-inspired patio at Park House. Carolina Herrera's president Emilie Rubinfeld and communications director Stephanie Castillo were in from New York for the occasion — and they brought with them a gift for the ladies in attendance. On everyone's seat was a little package: Inside each was a stylish turban made from textiles from the archive of interior designer Rose Cumming, a collab- oration between Carolina Herrera and Rose Cumming textiles. SEEN: Carolina Herrera boutique manager Allison Presser, and guests Cristina Lynch, Bradley Agather Means, Cate Ford, Kacy Tolleson, Libby Ornani, Mia Brous, Zoe Bonnette, Deborah Scott, Brooke Davenport, and Meghan Looney.
