SLAVE TO FASHION: “I was enslaved the moment I met her,” said Bill Nighy.“She’s an enchanting creature, and I’d do anything for her – no questions asked.” The object of his affection was Nicole Farhi, who was celebrating 20 years in the men’s wear business with a small dinner at her London showroom Monday night. Guests included Ralph Fiennes, Lady Amanda Harlech, Colin and Livia Firth, Jonathan Pryce, and Kate Fahy, most of whom are old friends of Farhi and her husband, the British playwright and director Sir David Hare.“What a moment to be having a party,” said Farhi, referring to the gloomy economy. “But it’s been 20 years, and I thought why not celebrate?”
