ELIE’S BAUBLES: Elie Tahari’s East Hampton store just got a bit more precious. The designer is partnering with the Council of Fashion Designers of America this summer by featuring jewelry by the likes of Kara Ross, Me & Ro, Stephen Dweck and new CFDA winner Subversive’s Justin Giunta in his East Hampton flagship. Starting July 1 and until the first weekend in September, two different designers will sell their jewelry on a two-week rotation in the 5,000-square-foot store, which opened in 2007. The store windows will have signage promoting the designers selling their work at the time. The designers also will make personal appearances in the store.
“Our East Hampton store is the perfect showcase for these amazing and talented designers,” said Tahari, chairman and chief executive officer of Elie Tahari Ltd. “I wanted to show my support for the fashion industry by giving these designers a platform from which to raise the awareness of their brands and be seen in a highly trafficked environment such as the Hamptons.”
