FIELD DAY: New York stylist Patricia Field will stage the opening runway show at Vienna’s annual Life Ball, a showcase in the past for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood. Katy Perry will also perform during the three-day extravaganza in mid-May, which last year raised $2 million for people living with HIV and AIDS. Meanwhile, guests at a gala auction in Paris this month to fete the 20th anniversary of the International Convention of Children’s Rights can lay hands on the very Chanel guitar that was shown on the runway last fall. Other highlights include Thierry Henri’s soccer shirt, signed by him. Proceeds from the event, whose sponsors include LVMH, will go to UNICEF and PlanNet Finance for children in India.
EASY TARGET: Anna Sheffield is spreading her seeds. The jewelry designer, whose Bing Bang line launched Bee 23 with Urban Outfitters last year, is once again hitting up the masses, this time with Target. Rumor has it she’ll be designing jewelry under the name Anna Sheffield for Target, presumably for the retailer’s Go International program, which has seen the likes of hip, downtown designers such as Rogan Gregory, Richard Chai and most recently Tracy Feith. The jewelry hits stores this August.
