Local friends of his, stylist Karen Tamblyn, Mark Calvano and Joel Goodrich (they originally met during a visit to the Paris shows), arranged the event after a recent visit to the Hollywood mansion Hacienda St. Pierre (built in 1929 for Al Jolson), where the most recent collection was shown. They tell us it was gorgeous!
