Last night guests gathered to celebrate the exclusive Markarian x CeCe Barfield for Christie’s Interiors launch—part of the auction house’s annual summer sale. This time around, Christie’s enlisted the help of two Manhattan-based tastemakers—fashion designer Alexandra O’Neill and interior designer CeCe Barfield Thompson (who also happen to be best friends)—by commissioning them to spearhead a capsule collection. The result? Two lines of well-crafted tableware by Barfield Thompson and a covetable range of romantic gowns that will undoubtedly be seen on all the cool girls about town. Model Hilary Rhoda, Architectural Digest Style Director Jane Keltner de Valle, and W Magazine’s Lauren McCarthy were among the chic crowd, sipping champagne and dining at a well-dressed table on Bergdorf Goodman’s 8th floor event space.
See all the highlights from the event above and be sure to explore the collections both online and in person at the Christie’s Lates program, an evening of art and interiors inspiration that celebrates women in business with talks, exhibitions and participation from a selection of remarkably creative, female-run companies on Monday, August 19th from 6PM to 8PM at Christie’s Rockefeller Center galleries.
