NEW YORK — Ann Dexter-Jones quietly started making jewelry three-and-a-half years ago — and on Tuesday her fine jewelry line, Ann Dexter-Jones Design, will make its official launch at the Park Avenue Garage Sale.
Dexter-Jones’ daughter, Samantha Ronson, will DJ at the event, to be held on West 56th Street here, and a percentage of proceeds will go to The Couture Council, the group dedicated to supporting the Fashion Institute of Technology’s The Museum at FIT. Dexter-Jones is also donating an additional percentage of proceeds to the school for scholarships for gifted students unable to afford tuition.
