Jack Vartanian has a lot of fans worldwide (the famous blonde ones like Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz come to mind), and the São Paulo resident has even got an apartment in Gotham to please his American contingent. “I’m here almost every two months these days,” smiled the Brazilian. Last night, Vanessa von Bismarck organized a chic little dinner at Le Charlot where guests like Allison Aston and Yigal Azrouel got some face time with the designer, his new collection, and some good bottles of wine. Vartanian even has his own New York ritual by now. “I try to arrive during the weekend and then go immediately to Sushi Seki,” he said. “By the time I wake in them morning, I know where to get my fresh croissants.” And he even has a new obsession to boast about: “I've been riding a lot of motor bikes lately in this mountain area right outside of São Paulo,” he said. “The altitude there is pretty high so I've been thinking I should actually buy [a house] there!”
