Rosetta Getty and her husband, Balthazar, hobnobbed in the T Room at Forty Five Ten Dallas recently along with their cousin-in-law, jewelry designer Sabine Getty, and such luminaries as Richard Phillips. “We wanted it to be a family reunion, but my husband couldn’t come,” lamented Sabine Getty.
The G force took in First Look, the preview party for Two x Two for AIDS and Art held at the Rachofsky House, and presented their latest collections at the store.
Rosetta Getty’s two-year-old ready-to-wear business is gaining momentum, she said. Her spring collection will be sold in 40 stores, including Lane Crawford, Ikram and Nordstrom. “I’d like to introduce some higher-end pieces — big pieces,” she said. “And we will add accessories. We’re working on that now.”
Getty knows her customer quite well. “It’s me — that’s where I always start,” she said. “I think, what do I need, what do I want? It’s been very successful but you never know — you think, maybe there’s no one else like me.”
Sabine Getty, meanwhile, looked to the geometric abstract art of Sonia Delaunay for the Sabine G. jewelry collection she’ll introduce in January.
“It has a lot of color and zig-zags and waves,” she said. “It looks like an 8-year-old drew jewelry. Now I’m making it, and I hope it’s got the same feel.”
