CAROLINA’S LUNCH LADIES: Carolina Herrera welcomed 12 noticeably appreciative Saks Fifth Avenue shoppers to a private lunch and fashion show Tuesday at Saks’ New York flagship. They caught more than a glimpse of the designer’s creations in the Fifth Avenue windows, en route to the intimate third-floor gathering near her in-store shop. A few took home souvenirs in the form of a blue tweed coat and a glittery black gown. “We had a wonderful group of women — a lawyer, a judge, a banker, a nurse and all these businesswomen. It was amusing to see how many different jobs they have but the one thing everyone had in common was fashion,” Herrera said. “All women love fashion — it always works out that way.”

Erdem Moralioglu will be the next designer to get up close and personal with Saks shoppers at a March 30 trunk show. Such gatherings give shoppers a glimpse of the next collection as well as new spring merchandise, said Joe Boitano, who also enjoys taking in the designer-floor scenery. “We’ve been gone for so long in Europe that it’s nice to see all the spring clothes in the store.”
