THE PARTY The always posh crowd at Barneys New York dressed a little brighter to meet and mingle with design stars Sharon Khazzam, Esteban Cort├ízar, Poppy King, Kristopher Brock and Laura Vassar at this luncheon benefiting UNICEF. “It’s a dream of mine to one day work with girls in Zimbabwe and let them know it’s OK to be free and happy,” says Vassar, designer of Brock Collection, when talking about the importance of the organization’s mission. THE PEOPLE After a lovely light lunch in Freds Chicago’s dining room, Barneys Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications Charlotte Blechman got the designers to spill some secrets and give audience members an insider look at upcoming trends (hint: every woman can wear red lipstick, according to Lipstick Queen’s King). THE PINNACLE Following the lunch and the lively Q&A, the designers took the guests shopping—Khazzam helped women find the perfect jewels, and Cort├ízar showed guests his sensual silhouettes. Barneys generously donated a portion of the proceeds to UNICEF. These ladies lunch with a global vision! –Photos by Chelsea Kane
