The Gazette collaborated with fine jewelry purveyor Harry Winston for an exclusive cocktail reception draped in opulence. Guests gathered at the House of Harry Winston salon, where they sipped on specialty wines and Louis XIII cognac while marveling at the company’s dazzling creations. A portion of the coveted Legacy Collection — 22 flawless pieces inspired by the 101.73-carat Winston Legacy diamond — were on full display. “San Francisco is an important luxury fashion market, with a sophisticated retail network that we are excited to explore and develop, as we bring our renowned heritage and extraordinary designs to the city for the very first time,” says Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston Inc. “As a brand that continuously finds inspiration in nature, architecture and the arts, we could not have imagined a more fitting backdrop than Union Square — the heart of San Francisco culture — for showcasing our one-of-a-kind jewelry and timepiece creations.” Dede Wilsey, Willie Brown and Sonya Molodetskaya were spotted among the A-List crowd, along with other power players, including the Gazette’s own Janet and Clint Reilly, Liza Zabelle, Malin Giddings, Joel Goodrich,
OJ Shansby, and Farah and Victor Makras.
