The Ritz-Carlton Presidential suite saw a private viewing of objects d'art hosted by Princess Ira von Furstenberg on December 13. The princess has built a reputation for her unusual works with crystal and other semi-precious stones and the show, entitled Objects Uniques, captivated an audience invited for the private sale.
The casual cocktail gathering was a reunion for the princess as fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, with her media tycoon husband Barry Diller, dropped in. The princess and the fashion queen were in-laws when Diane was married to the princess' brother.
Also there were Perveen Crawford, Silvio Berge, Sally Lo, William Furniss and Saudi consul general Alaudeen Alaskary.
