ROITFELD LINES UP: Any young designer would pretty much do whatever was necessary to get French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld to his or her runway show. Frank Kobitz is doing the next best thing — using her daughter Julia Reston Roitfeld's talents to help get guests to his Feb. 2 Frank Tell fashion show at New York's Tribeca Grand Hotel. The junior Roitfeld has designed invitations to the Tribeca Grand Hotel presentation and her work is credited in the fine print.
Kobitz, who had a Ross Bleckner-authorized print in last season's collection, is teaming up with artist Ben Copperwheat for one of this season's prints — one that derived from the geometrical gardens in the Alain Resnais classic film "Last Year at Marienbad."
