Celebrating “Decades” Chez Chenault

Friday, September 13, 2013

“The book isn’t a definitive history of fashion; it’s my history of fashion,” Decades founder Cameron Silver told the chic crowd at Monday night’s cocktail party toasting the success of his book “Decades, A Century of Fashion.” The first edition of his history of fashion, released last year, sold out in a mere 48 hours. So, in celebration of the second edition, and, of course, of New York Fashion Week, Kathryn Chenault, along with B Michael, Mark-Anthony Edwards,

Jean Shafiroff, welcomed an intimate crowd to Chenault’s grand Upper East Side home to congratulate the author/vintage connoisseur and down a couple flutes of champagne. Held on a Monday to ensure the attendance of legendary theatre stars like Cicely Tyson, other notable guests included Regis Philbin, Arianna Huffington, Deborah Roberts, Jessica and Lois Betts, Cole Rumbough, Angelique Soave, Thelma Golden, and Yaz and Valentin Hernandez. Everyone took home a copy of the best-selling tome, about which Silver quipped: “Someone was able to sell a copy on ebay for over 500 dollars. Maybe one of you will get lucky.”
