MARIA'S MOMENT: Thursday was momentous for Maria Cornejo. It marked her 22nd wedding anniversary with husband Mark Borthwick and the official opening of the third store for Zero + Maria Cornejo on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. The anniversary celebration had to wait until Friday, when Cornejo hoped to take advantage of the Southern California beaches to spend time with Borthwick. As for the store, she said, “It makes me want to shop, and I hate shopping.” Apparently others, including Rosetta Getty, Lisa Love, Magda Berliner, Katharine Ross, Tom Binns, Liseanne Frankfurt and George Kotsiopoulos who attended the opening, feel the same way. Cornejo’s business partner, Marysia Woroniecka, reported that, after recording a slight around 1 percent increase last year, Zero + Maria Cornejo’s retail sales are up 35 percent this year. She said the brand would consider more stores next year and possibly open a men’s wear store in Manhattan.
