On Wednesday, March 3rd, Harry Winston Beverly Hills merged two major events – a celebration of the Academy Awards, and the introduction of the jewelers new president and CEO, Frederic de Narp, to clients from both the Beverly Hills and South Coast Plaza stores.
The newly minted Mr. de Narp joined Winston in January, having previously served in the same capacity of Cartier North America. On display were some of the jewels that in just a few days would grace the necks and ears of some of Hollywood’s golden girls on the red carpet.
Mr. de Narp gave an amusing and warm introduction to his guests, who dined on caviar and Champagne while perusing the latest in Winston goodies, and promised to come back to town sooner rather than later.
Guests included: Jamie Tisch, Alan and Susan Casden, gemologist Tom Burstein, gallery owner David Streets, Dick and Sally Lippin, Collective Editor in Chief Eryka Clayton, Larrissa Sabadash, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Saglietti, and Harry Winston vice president, Beverly Hills, the always lovely Goli Parstabar.
