ANDY WARHOL MUSEUM FUND RAISING EVENING

Let the party start: What happens when you put some impressive sponsors together? A party! And what are exactly the details?

Where? In New York: at iconic Le Cirque Restaurant for dinner, then, for the after-party,  in the stunning Halston House, former home of designer Halston and of Gunther Sachs (who was married to Brigitte Bardot), where Andy Warhol and his circle of friends once partied.

Why? To raise money for The Andy Warhol Museum. If you are interested in visiting, here is our experience about it: The Andy Warhol Museum Day Trip.

The Sponsors: Ask the Monsters; The Andy Warhol Museum board; Michael Chow; Cynthia Friedman; Larry Gagosian; Dominique Levy; Peter Marino; Demetrios and Kathe PatrinosChristoph Van de Weghe.

A LITTLE BIT NAME DROPPING

Debbie Harry - I am a huge admirer of Deborah Harry and of her music. She is best known as the lead singer of Blondie and I listened – and listen – to their records for hours and hours. Debbie was  a wonderful guest: people (me included) kept going to her telling her “I am such a fan of yours!”, and she took time for everybody. During the sing-along for all guests, she got up from her seat and sang the theme from ‘All in the Family”.

Paige Powell - Photographer Paige Powell, Warhol’s confidant and Basquiat’s ex girlfriend, brought some never seen before pictures of both Andy and Jean-Michel. Paige has been sitting on (“literally; they were stashed in boxes under the bed,” she says) a treasure trove that’s remained largely unexamined. She has finally started to archive it and showcase it to the world.

Peter Marino - We are in love with fashion and architecture, so we were star-struck by Peter Marino. He is the world’s most sought after architect of luxury fashion stores (his works include the Louis VuittonChristian DiorArmaniFendiCalvin Klein and Zegnaflasgship stores), an art lover and connoisseur, and a man with a wild fashion sense. His bad cop look was amazing!

Trudie Goetz and Theo Grigoriadis - The absolute top of fashion and luxury in Switzerland – go to one of the Trois Pommes stores if you want to know where trends are: Trudie Goetz and Theo Grigoriadis.

HALSTON HOUSE AND THE AFTER-PARTY

After dinner, a line of limos took everybody from Le Cirque to 101 East 63 Street, to Halston House.

The legendary former residence of Halston, where Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Bianca Jagger, supermodel Pat Cleveland and many more once partied, still retains  the spectacular looks and atmosphere of the 70s decadent-disco-glamour era, when it became a “home-away-from-home” for Andy Warhol.

We had a tour through “101” and loved the iconic decor, photographs, paintings and stairs made to dance on.
