Kelly Cutrone will be the first to admit she is not one for convention.

AIDING JAPAN: Fashion designers aren’t the only ones getting behind Japanese aid efforts. Meeling Wong and Jim Conte of fine jewelry flash-sale Web site have corralled 19 jewelry firms to donate pieces for auction on, with a 100 percent of proceeds going to relief efforts. Among the list of donors: H.Stern, House of Waris, Buccellati, Kimberly McDonald, Mikimoto, Monica Rich Kosann and Robert Lee Morris. “We sought to bring together the many brands and individuals who, like myself, have experienced the extraordinary generosity of the Japanese people,” said Conte, who spent 17 years living in Japan. “We hope that through our efforts, we’re able to repay at least some of that kindness during a time of such immense sadness.” The “Jewelers for Japan” sale kicks off on April 5 and will close on April 19.
