WATERWORLD: Jewelry designer Monique Péan is not the average fashion girl. So when she celebrated her Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award on Tuesday night at Hosfelt Gallery in Manhattan, it wasn’t the average fashion party. An advocate for the environment with her collection to benefit Charity: Water — an organization that aims to provide clean drinking water to regions where it isn’t available — Péan gave the foundation $20 for ever person at the party who walked the runway down the nave of the space carrying two water jugs. Several revelers took Péan up on her offer. Guests included models Sarah Parr, Katherine Werderitsch and Lauren Bush, with who Péan just returned from a Summit Series Conference in Aspen for the top 100 entrepreneurs in America under 35 years old, sponsored by the United Nations Foundation.
Péan also launched her new collection at the event, which incorporates stones such as rough sapphires, black tourmaline and natural yellow calcite. “I just finished this ring three hours ago,” marveled Péan at the rough-edged soapstone and Herkimer diamond cocktail ring she donned. “It’s like a weapon.”
