Favorites in the D

My buddy, Chuck Bennett (top, far left), hosted a fabulous soiree at the Roostertail in Detroit. The event marked the one-year anniversary of his blog the social D.

All the guests ate, drank and danced to all of Chuck’s favorites. Models wearing Neiman Marcus fashions (lower left) added to the ambiance.  Detroit’s finest food establishments catered the party — Forte Belanger, The London Chophouse, Bistro 82, Andiamo, Tre Monti, Addison Eatery  and yes,  Detroit’s own American Coney Island. Spirits were from Zim’s Vodka and Great Lakes Wine & Spirits. Proceeds from the auction items — a Shinola Watch and a Townsend getaway– benefited three charities. Danialle Karmanos Work it Out DKWIO, the Horatio Williams Foundation and the Rhonda Walker Foundation were the beneficiaries.

I had the opportunity to chat with some interesting people — Dr. Joel Kahn, one of my favorite Beaumont doctors (upper right in the photo with me) and Karen Buscemi (lower right), Rosemary Bannon, Marcy Hayes, Ina Levinson, Tom Anderson, Terry Olson.

To see some of the fascinating people at the event, check out D business. (I even made it in the party pics!)

 

 

 

RIP: Styleline Magazine

This is the last issue of Styleline magazine produced by The Detroit Media Partnership. It’s disappointing that another Motown magazine has disappeared. Editor Karen Buscemi did a fabulous job of keeping all of us motown fashion gurus in style. Karen, you will find a wonderful home soon. To all my colleagues,  I will miss reading you especially the kids’ corner with Danialle Karmanos, the fun reads by Julie Yolles, and touring the homes  with Jeanine Matlow and Gene Meadows. As a former fashion editor, I can sympathize with the staff. To Hour, Detroit HomeAmbassador and Chuck Bennett’s blog The Social D we are counting on you to keep publishing!

The Social D Debuts

15 Feb

There’s a new website in motown, and Neiman Marcus in Troy, Mich.  celebrated its debut with a fashionable bash.  My friend and colleague, Chuck Bennett, unveiled his lifestyle blog —The Social D, designed by Martin LeFlore.  Chuck is well known in the media as a fashion guru and party scene stealer. His words are as melodious as the sounds of Ben Sharkey and Kimmie Horne who performed at the party. From leather to fur, from hot colors to minimal hues, the fashions were fabulous. Philanthropist Danialle Karmanos (top left) and DKWIO founder introduced Chuck as “the godfather of Detroit.” Need we say more?
