Throughout DuJour’s history, the Winter issue has been a special celebration of the on-screen achievements that will define the careers of great actors. While working on this magazine, the team and I were fortunate enough to experience some monumental moments of our own in the form of new business, outstanding events and exciting new ventures.
Our summer ended with a move to 530 Seventh Avenue and a toast to our new offices among friends—including building owner Bob Savitt—atop the property at David Rabin’s gorgeous rooftop bar, The Skylark. The parties continued during a jam-packed New York Fashion Week, which included an intimate celebration and film screening with Fall cover star Renée Zellweger and an all-out bash at LAVO with guest of honor Jason Derulo. A special thanks is in order to Diageo’s Keenan Towns, who provided specialty cocktails made with Zacapa Rum and Tanqueray for the events. Most recently, we fêted diamond guru Fawaz Gruosi at one of our favorite spots, Harry Cipriani, and enjoyed a gourmet dining experience with Gaggenau at Restaurant 1683. We look forward to many exciting events in the near future as DuJour continues to move onward and upward, forging new partnerships with United Airlines, Judith Leiber, North Sails and more amazing brands.
On a personal note, I have had the honor of embarking on two exciting new endeavors at cutting-edge companies. I now serve as Chief Advisor to the Board of Directors at InList (the nightlife and events booking app founded by Gideon Kimbrell and Michael Capponi) and as an Executive Director at JetSmarter (the world’s largest mobile marketplace for private jets). I’m honored to lend my experience to two companies I greatly admire.
