Liz Sells, of Winchester-based Sells & Co., teamed up with New York fashion designer Charlotte Ronson Monday night for an evening of fashion, food, and music at Red Lantern Restaurant in the Back Bay.
Boston-based models were decked out in Ronsonâ€™s latest spring looks from her namesake line, which incorporated diverse textures from white lace to patchwork denim to earthy suede. Overall, the pieces were feminine and subdued and seem like the perfect pieces for transitioning into a sticky East Coast summer.
Showing her support and tag-teaming the fashion show was twin sister and DJ Samantha Ronson, who performed a live set to guests at the Lolita after-party and provided attendees with a runway mixtape to take home. (Bostonista)

When Prabal Gurung, one of the 33 new inductees (all wearing green boutonnieres) of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, was asked last night if membership did, indeed, have its privileges, he did not hesitate to respond. â€śThe biggest part of all of this is having access to amazing, established designers,â€ťÂ he said. â€śThe second-best part is the camaraderie that is building among all the members. That is the part I am really trying to focus on.â€ť In fact, he added, he was heading to dinner with jeweler Monique PĂ©an directly following the party.
That camaraderie was clear Tuesday night at the cocktail held at Donna Karanâ€™s magnificent Upper West Side apartment to fete the next generation of American fashion designers. Christian Cota caught up with CFDA CEO Steven Kolb, Diane von Furstenberg was spotted chatting with Charlotte Ronson, and Flora Gill of Ohne Titel talked shop with fellow CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Dana Lorenz of Fenton/Fallon.
A jovial and completely charming Olivier Theyskens, now creative director at Theory, said he felt especially touched by the honor. â€śTo be a designer from Paris and then to move to New York and become a part of the CFDA? When that happened, it really dawned on me that I now am an American designer,â€ť he said with a smile. â€śAnd I love the energy here. I never sleep. I donâ€™t want to leave, but I keep scheduling trips back to France every few months so I can rest. I donâ€™t want to get burned out in a few years because Iâ€™d like to stay here and work for a very long time.â€ť
