(NEW YORK) Before Jim Gold & Co. could board a plane to Milan for a fashion fortnight in Europe, there was one more important event to attend on the Bergdorf Goodman premises. Akris hosted a brunch yesterday at BG along with Dr. Frank Chervenak and the Presbyterian Hospital Committee to highlight the company’s Botticelli-esque spring collection and help highlight the charity’s main event later this year. Lizzie Tisch, Lisa Anastos, Christine Chun and Melissa Skoog were some of the names who joined Caroline Brown and Emilie Rubinfeld from Akris for a morning meal of mushroom and egg quiche, fruit salad, and warm croissants. And there was plenty to smile about as fresh-faced models paraded around the restaurant room. 2009 will mark a 20 year relationship between Bergforf and Akris’ head designer Albert Kriemler. And there's always the fact that Angelina Jolie has been wearing the Swiss brand almost non-stop this year--that kind of endorsement can’t be bad for business.
