New York fashion week may not officially start until Thursday, but that didn’t stop a group of well-heeled ladies from kicking the social swirl into high gear at a lunch at the Dolce & Gabbana boutique on Madison Avenue on Monday afternoon. Samantha Boardman Rosen, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Eleanor Cayre and Nina Davidson hosted the event, for which proceeds benefited Citymeals-on-Wheels and Herbal Remedy For Children’s Allergies. Guests including Heather Mnuchin, Jennifer Creel and Shoshanna Gruss thumbed through racks of spring merch and helped themselves to a buffet of poached salmon and pasta salad. Some shared their shopping strategies.
“I’m not looking for one item in particular,” said Creel. “Whenever I go shopping for a black shirt, I can never find a black shirt. So I’m just looking for something I like.”
