Tuesday night I hit up Geisha (one of my favorite UES spots) for Royal Chie who celebrating their new Eco-Friendly Collection. The hosting committe consisted of Martin Dawson, Maggie Rizer, Elizabeth Saint-Amand, Gillian Hearst Simonds, Tinsley Mortimer, and Liz Walker. We were greeted by the hilarious artist-of-the-moment David Foote, once upstairs, we had to pleasure of bumping into Patrick McMullan, Richie Rich, Devorah Rose, Tia Walker, Gillian Hearst-Simonds, and Kristian Laliberte.

Dabney Mercer swung by along with Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump (with little Kai), Ivanka Trump, Dani Stahl, Francine LeFrak, Meredith Melling Burke, Martin Dawson, and Rochelle Goldberg. Not only was the line beautiful, but the designer herself, Chie Imai, made a point to personally introduced herself to each and every attendee; very classy, if I do say so myself. It was a fantastic start to the evening.
