GALLERY GOING: Soon Karl Lagerfeld and Azzedine Alaïa won't have to travel to the outskirts of Paris to scoop up cutting-edge furniture and lighting from hip Galerie Kreo.
"We're moving to the center of Paris," said Kreo's founder, Didier Krzentowski, who represents Martin Szekely, Marc Newson and the Bourroulec brothers, among others.
Located in what was once Ruby's Nightclub at 31 Rue Dauphine in the Saint- Germain district, the new Galerie Kreo will join the ranks of the Rive Gauche galleries that have settled into the neighborhood. Kamel Mennour opened his sprawling space on nearby Rue Saint André des Arts last fall, for example.
Stretching out over 4,300 square feet, the new Galerie Kreo is expect to open its doors in October. "We're working on a fantastic opening," Krzentowski said at the dinner organized by the French interior design trade show Maison & Objet to honor Zaha Hadid as designer of the year.
"It is a great honor to be here," said Hadid, who flew in for the occasion and joined fashion designers, furniture makers and architects including Loulou de la Falaise and Jean Nouvel.

Now a scholarship for a new generation of fashion figures has been launched in her name. The Isabella Blow Memorial Scholarship will annually provide a fashion student at Middlesex University in North London with financial support during his or her degree course.
