TRAVELING TAHARI: Elie Tahari has cut so many ribbons of late it must only be a matter of time before he designs his own pair of scissors. Late last month, the designer opened a store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., with a party hosted by Jonathan Adler and Lara Spencer. While there, he engaged in some personal retail therapy by shopping for midcentury furniture and also staged a fashion show at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, followed by a Virginia Madsen-hosted dinner at Sunset Tower. “California is like our second home,” Tahari said at Saks. “This is the state where we have the most customers after New York.”
With little time to nurse his jet lag, Tahari hopped to London to check out his new Harrods shop, then headed to Istanbul to fete his first store there earlier this month. He made a stop in his native Israel before coming back to New York for the official opening of his new Saks boutique with co-host Katie Cassidy last Tuesday. Tahari showed no signs of travel fatigue. “I am telling people that my passport is my new fashion accessory,” he said.
