What: Michael Aram personal appearance and cocktail party.

Where: Events.

The 411: Events owner Regina Garcia welcomed noted home-decor designer Michael Aram to her River Oaks boutique for his only personal appearance in the southwest U.S. this spring. Guests sipped on champagne and cocktails while Aram signed purchases, shared stories of how he develops his designs and detailed the joys and tribulations of raising four-year-old twins with his partner.

Just as the party ended, Aram jetted to Las Vegas for the Luxury trade show that brings together upscale jewelry retailers with high end manufacturers and designers. He will introduce a new jewelry line this fall.

Who: Joining in the conversation were Sandra Porter, Harriet Gertner, Judy Nichols, Linda Susman, Philamena Baird, Claude and Deborah Wynne, Marine Weitz, Mary Jane Zummo, Liz Altshuler and Patsy Chapman.
