Shinan had a small, intimate gathering of people for his Boldface Names book at Barbara Edwards Contemporary gallery. We enjoyed artwork from Barbara’s latest exhibition by photographer Taras Polataiko. The gallery is in Barbara’s home, which explained why the party felt so warm and inviting. She has an amazing kitchen with beautiful gas stove. It was such a treat watching our cute ginger-haired chef, Nathan Isberg go to town making us culinary delights.
There were a couple personalities in the group (besides myself that is, har, har). Steven and Chris joined us as well as a cute young actor named Michael Seater. Michael was wearing this amazing green velvet jacket. A friend took a picture but I wish I took one myself.
The desserts were to die for. Egg custard served in egg shells and Lemon mint sorbet served in lemons. The egg custard was the best custard I’ve ever tasted.
It wasn’t just about food, it was an opportunity to meet other people.Â It wasn’t just the usual fashion crowd there were some of the art and journalism crowd.Â I guess no Shinan party goes without someone asking if anyone has been named dropped by the man himself.Â I’m at 2, once anonymously in reference to the Escada reopening and just last month.
Shinan was a lovely host to a lovely evening.Â Thank you Shinan.
Thanks KnotPr for all the twitpics!
