PARTY DRESSES: Aside from being pretty, the dresses designed exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue by Christian Cota, Prabal Gurung, Doo-Ri Chung, Erdem Moralioglu, Marios Schwab and Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi were a good excuse to party Thursday night. After sizing up the dresses on Saks’ third floor, the designers and hostesses, including Devon Aoki and Margherita Missoni, moved on to Mr. Chow uptown for a private dinner. “It was supposed to be for 20 people, but it turned into 40,” said Saks’ Joe Boitano of the tightly packed tables in the back room.
Gurung sat elbow to elbow with Chanel Iman, who wore his one-shouldered cobalt blue and polka dot dress and talked up the Culver City, Calif., store she recently opened with her mother. “I’m a buyer now,” she said before demolishing a plate of chicken wings.
And lest anyone forget that there was an arty angle to the evening (10 percent of the dress sales go to the Whitney Museum), there was artist Ryan Humphrey, who’s prepping for his show opening next week at DCKT gallery downtown.
