Raising over $700,000.00 for NYC's at-risk youth 
at Good Shepherd Services benefit,
planned by the supreme "accessorator" Isaac Mizrahi!!!!!

 

Sitting on pink ballroom chairs, at tables dressed in pink cloths, "accessorated" with Preston Bailey's divinely decadent floral poodles, dinning on a  delicious dinner orchestrated by super-chef Mario Batali & dancing to great music under the glow of pink lights  ........ Board Member, Isaac Mizrahi "designed" the perfect 1st Annual Spring Party for Good Shepherd Services!!!!! 

Good Shepherd Services is a "social service and youth development agency serving at-risk New York City children and their families through a network of supports that promote a safe passage to self- sufficiency." Director Sister Paulette Lo Monaco and her staff do amazing work, achieving incredible results ....... as Isaac said, "supporting our young people is all of our responsibility!!!!"

I paid another visit to Merci (blog 11/11/09) and again was very take with 
Marie-France & Bernard Cohen's creative concept of "giving back."  

 

My favorite thing on this visit was this divinely designed dinnerware by French product designer Jean Marc Gady. Attaching a series of different size white porcelain plates creates a wonderful venue for a meal of "small plates" or tapas, a trend that is very au courant and exactly how I love to eat!!!!

 

I love the idea that Merci features a collection of different products 
on every  visit ............  from fashion to home & more!!!!
