Much like a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, an invitation to fashion designer Johnson Hartig’s book signing at Neiman Marcus was hard to come by and eagerly anticipated. The elegant, private affair at the Rotunda Restaurant was hosted by the store’s general manager, Alan Morrell.
The guest list included most of San Francisco’s high-style ladies, including Sonya Molodetskaya, Brenda Zarate, Marilyn Cabak, Farah Makras and Natalia Urrutia.
The star attraction at this exquisite cocktail party was Hartig’s vibrant book, Libertine: The Creative Beauty, Humor and Inspiration Behind the Cult Label. Its 250 captivating pages capture Hartig’s passions, joys, and evolution throughout the years.
Of course, his latest Libertine collection was showcased—and it’s a delicious brew of brilliant colors, fascinating designs and mind-boggling shapes. It was easy to see which guests at the swanky soiree were sporting his eclectic gear.
