W ildly creative visionary Todd Fiscus of Todd Events created a magical space for the evening. Dramatic white columns covered in vinyl simulated paint dripping in shades of plum, gold, black, and taupe — decor spun from the concept of a melting flower. The modern take on a fantastical Old-World garden unfolded with a clear floor-to-ceiling tent draped with black velvet and plum carpet. The centerpiece of the space was a 10-foot round lamp shade covered in plum velvet, housing green Murano glass chandeliers. Yes, it was an "Oh wow, I need that at my next party" moment. Air-kisses floated throughout the room as friends caught up and sipped cocktails (my favorite was Summer in Mykonos by Kástra Elión Vodka). I overheard snippets of conversations that ranged from the most glamorous (Nancy Dedman sharing her thoughts on where she might travel to this summer — all extremely chic destinations, of course) to the practical (Neiman Marcus' Mary McGreevy seeking expert wallpaper installers for her new home). Another highlight of the annual event are the coveted lots in the silent auction. The seven items this year included once-in-a- lifetime experiences such as visiting Brunello Cucinelli's headquarters, Solomeo, in Italy; a New York Fashion Week insider package; and a studio tour of one of the most influential artists today, Mickalene Thomas. But perhaps the lot that was getting the most attention was an exquisite bracelet from Sue Gragg Precious Jewels.
