Tuesday evening, renowned jewelry designer Judith Murat, creator of House of Murat, celebrated the release of her gold-leaved hardcover book, Judy’s Journey Into the Land of Murat with a private-book signing soiree cum trunk-show to benefit Alzheimer’s Association at the penthouse home of Andrea and John Stark.

Hosts Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Muffie Potter Aston, and Somers Farkas welcomed friends and supporters the likes of Geoffrey Bradfield, Jean Shafiroff, Michele Gerber Klein, Cole Rumbough, Cassandra Seidenfeld, Elaine Sargent, Joanna Mastroianni and Maggie Norris.  Murat signed books with co-author Charles (Sunny) Castor for friends including Stephanie Conrad, Christine Schott, and Liliana Cavendish, while Susan Jacob provided stylist Alison Lang and Sharon Bush with a preview of Murat’s latest collections. Andrea Stark thanked guests for coming to her home to support such a worthy cause, and then surprised her husband John and guest Debra Tanger with House of Murat signature pieces as part of a raffle that supported the Alzheimer’s Association.

“Judy’s Journey Into the Land of Murat” showcases Judith’s stunning “Island Living” collection. Her most noted and signature pieces from this current collection were available for purchase at the event and will now be sold through Scully & Scully on Park Avenue, which Michael Scully shared with guests over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from Elegant Affairs.
