And it should thrill everyone whose heart beats faster at the sight of a new fashion creation. And particularly when that fashion comes from Paris, the fashion capital of the world, and it carries that incomparable label Chanel. What we re leading up to is the premier showing in Los Angeles of the fall couture collection (it makes its debut next week in Paris) from the House of Chanel. Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the collection will be the star attraction at a gala evening on Sept. 16 hosted by the Music Center s fashion conscious Amazing Blue Ribbon. Mrs. Thomas R. Vreeland Jr., a veritable fashion plate herself, is chairing the black tie event which takes place in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion s Grand Hall. The evening will start with a champagne reception just outside the Pavilion s doors. Then the party moves inside for the show. And after that, it s time for dinner and dancing. The fashion show, a 28 minute presentation, will be very Parisian, done exactly as it is in the Chanel showrooms on the Rue Cambon. Except, Fashion Moncler Bady Quilted Hooded Down Jacket Light Blue of course, that in Paris the models walk on a runway and at the Music Center they ll be parading up and down the Grand Staircase. (Mlle. Chanel, we feel, would not object. She always watched her showings from the staircase that led to her office.) Hard Work Pays Off Chanel is not only underwriting the expenses of the show, but is also making a $150,000 donation to the Music Center Unified Fund. It s the kind of wonderful benefit a party chairman dreams of. But it s also hard work. Says Nancy Vreeland, "I ve been working on this with Kitty d Alessio (Chanel president) for a long time. Kitty and I first met in February of 1983." The coordination between Chanel and the Blue Ribbon has so far been ideal. Chanel has specified that the decor be all white. The couture house is also bringing in 25 of its models, including the "face of Chanel" Ines de la Frassange their head \o7 vendeuse\f7 , and their lighting and sound specialists who will work hand in hand with their counterparts at the Pavilion. Besides Nancy Vreeland, who is on the phone to Paris almost daily, those heavily involved with this fund raiser include honorary co chairs Mrs. Alan W. Livingston (you know her as actress Nancy Olson and the Blue Ribbon s new chairman) and Mrs. William F. Kieschnick (you know her best as BR s new president) and an honorary committee that includes, among many more, Paige Rense, and Mdmes. Henry Winkler, Peter Ueberroth, Charles B. Thornton, Aaron Spelling, Gregory Peck, Peter O Malley, Otis Chandler, Garry K. Marshall, Kennedy B. Galpin, Leonard Goldberg, Walter Annenberg, Peter S. Bing, Robert A. Hamilton, Earle M. Jorgensen, Thomas V. Jones, Henry Salvatori, Nicholas Vanoff, Vernon O. Underwood and John K. Van de Kamp. On a social scale of 1 to 10, the visit to Los Angeles of the President of the People s Republic of China Li Xiannian and his wife, Lin Jianei, ranks at the top, right alongside, according to Mayor Tom Bradley s chief of protocol Bee Lavery, the visit of Queen Elizabeth II. And that s saying a lot. International Airport on Saturday awaiting their very special guests. World Affairs Council President Edmonde Haddad and his wife; Supervisor and Mrs. Ed Edelman; Mrs. and Mrs. and Mrs. David Lee (he s president of the National Assn. of Chinese Americans). That afternoon the Chinese president and the mayor will have a private meeting. And that evening there s the big dinner hosted by the mayor and the World Affairs Council. That ticket is so hot there are 700 on the waiting list. There s so much interest in this visit, says Mrs. Lavery, because of the number of corporations doing business with China (McDonald Douglas, Occidental Petroleum and Lockheed among them) and because there are more Chinese Americans living in this area than in any other part of the United States.) President Li seems to be no different Moncler Mens Down Jackets With Hat Sky Blue from any other high ranking visitor his itinerary includes a visit to Disneyland. He ll also tour the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, meet with Dr. Armand Hammer, who returned from China just a few weeks ago, and attend a dinner at the Beverly Hilton given by the National Assn. of Chinese Americans and the Chinese American community. On her own, the president s wife will attend a tea given by Caroline Ahmanson.
