My New York this week

8th - 13th April 2007

I started off the week popping to the Spin magazine / DKNY Jeans charity auction at Milk Gallery. Up for grabs were iconic rock'n'roll photos, the Kaiser Chiefs dj'd and I bumped in to the effervescent Arden Wohl wearing looking a real star in one of my dresses.

Had a lovely civilised afternoon tea at The St.Regis Hotel on Thursday with Sophie Dahl and her sister. Not wanting to miss out, Kitty put in an appearance too.

Later that day, Jonas Mekas, the 84 year old filmaker tipped as the Godfather of American avant-garde cinema, had the opening of his new exhibition "The Beauty of Friends Being Together Quartet" at PS1. The Agnes B supported event featured a multi-channel film installation of his archival footage ( my favourite being Elvis live in his final white jumpsuit period, sped up and overdubbed with Mozart). Agnes danced, I got to meet another New York legend the photographer and Warhol collaborator Marcia Resnick, and we all had a real laugh.

Agnes B hits the dancefloor at PS1. I was so pleased when I first met Agnes and realised she was not only an amazing fashion designer,business woman and supporter of the arts but also a bubbly blonde.

I was thrilled yesterday to see that my clothes have hit young Hollywood. I saw in the press that the adorable "Big Love" actress Ginny Goodwin wore my sequinned Spacey dress from my new fall collection to Milla Jovovich's party at the Chateau Marmont.
