The Russell James Book Launch at the Stephen Weiss sculpture studio was hosted by Donna Karan. The exhibition on the 1st floor was entitled “Nomad Two Worlds”.This was a collaboration between Russell James and Clifton Bieundurry and others. The combined works represented what comes as a result of traditional aborigine spiritual paintings and Russell James’s Photography. The room flowed with great energy and great beauty. At every turn there were models from Ford, IMG and Elite who were featured in the book. In equal attendance were their admirers. Along with a roaring fire in the background there was a great spread of sushi. The gracious hostess Ms. Donna Karan’s Zen sensibilities were felt through out the entire space, whether it was the illuminated roof garden or the reflecting pool. Such grace and style should be allowed every day but this night was ideal. Perfectly New York at it’s best.
