SWEET ROMANCE: Red heart balloons greeted guests at the door of Mulberry’s Madison Avenue shop in honor of photographer Chris Craymer’s new book, “Romance.” The party’s theme was one-half love — with attendees piling into a pink photo booth and picking at chocolate kisses strewn about — and one-half homage to all things British, with a dessert cake emulating Great Britain’s flag. The London-born photographer greeted fans with his children in tow, who were busy snapping pictures of their own. “I wanted to find subjects that allowed me to make emotional images, not intellectual ones,” Craymer said of the book, which featured pictures of happy couples and loved ones. “I hope the book gave people a happy feeling because that’s what I like to feel when I look at people.” Cohosted by Mulberry creative director Emma Hill and CFDA executive director Steven Kolb, the party also showcased other original work by Craymer that went up for silent auction, raising $10,000. All proceeds went toward the CFDA Foundation Inc. Mulberry is hosting further events for the book throughout the summer in London, Paris and Hong Kong. Copies of “Romance” also will be available at bookstores around the country for $60.
