Mid-Winter Gala

The 11th annual Mid-Winter Gala to benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco was set in The Golden City but this year’s host, fashion power house Salvatore Ferragamo, had Beverly Hills and Florence on the brain! LMD packed up the East Coast crew and headed West to make the Italian al fresco fantasy a […]

Girl Gone Wild

We recently transformed Skylight Studios into a plush dinner space and party lounge in celebration of a 25th birthday. It began with an intimate dinner for 70 – two long tables glimmering with mirror, glass and candlelight in a room that was illuminated only by a series of crystal chandeliers and projections of a moody […]
