BY WAY OF MEXICO: Carolina Herrera will soon be off to Mexico City to host a House of Herrera fashion show Friday followed by a 500-person gala for such guests as Dianna Agron, Olivia Palermo, Emily VanCamp and Dita Von Teese. Alexandra Richards will man the DJ booth when partygoers celebrate at the historic Universidad Claustro de Sor Juana. The designer will show the spring collections for the Carolina Herrera New York ready-to-wear collection and the CH Carolina Herrera men’s and women’s. The star-studded event will no doubt grab a few headlines in this city of 20-million-plus.
Organized in conjunction with Makken Moda, the event is a first for Herrera’s 33-year-old company, which has distribution in 105 countries.
