Selma Blair, Constance Zimmer and Aimee Song were among the actors and influencers who turned out to Cecconi’s in West Hollywood on Thursday to meet New York-based contemporary designer Ramy Brook Sharp of Ramy Brook.
The designer, who had a brief break between the major and boutique markets, jumped at the chance to visit Los Angeles. “I wanted to do this as a thank you to the actresses who have been supporting me for years, and the bloggers. So many of the important influencers are based in L.A.,” said Sharp, who launched her business in 2010 and has since dabbled in handbags and most recently, ath-leisure. She brought a preview of the spring 2017 sportswear collection with her, as well as holiday pieces and some of her classic silhouettes such as adjustable waist jumpsuits and silk halter tops. After the meal, she set up a mini gifting boutique on the terrace behind the restaurant.
Blair donned the same fur vest as Sharp, and even took a selfie of their matching outfits for posterity. Meanwhile, expectant actress Lindsay Sloane modeled a pleated chiffon skirt, saying, “it camouflages my bump,” while Zimmer said of the wrap-front trousers, “They are flattering to everyone and the most comfortable pants.” Other fans of the style include Kate Beckinsale and Carrie Underwood.
Sharp will return to Los Angeles Jan. 19 for an event at Bloomingdale’s in Westfield Century City mall to support the Jan. 11 season three premiere of Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” “Lisa Edelstein [the show’s star] wears my clothes on the show and in real life, and she’ll be there,” Sharp said. A similar event will take place at Bloomingdale’s 59th and Lexington Avenue flagship on Jan. 10. The show’s costume designer Cynthia Ann Summers also stopped by Cecconi’s to show her support, no doubt earmarking some new pieces for the show.
