Elegantly Eco

NEW YORK—According the House of Berardi designer Alexander Berardi, an exquisite piece of clothing is only as beautiful as the woman wearing it. The New York–based designer’s philosophy of promoting self-confidence through customized couture was on display at the Surrogate’s Courthouse on Sept. 15. Celebrities and the fashion elite, including Anna Wintour’s daughter Bea Shaffer and socialite and Teen Vogue Contributing Editor Selby Drummond, showed up to view Berardi’s Spring 2009 collection, which focused on a modern viewpoint, using elegant and eco-friendly materials.
