Timken's Art of Fashion

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


Themed 'Art of Fashion,' the Timken Museum played backdrop for the August 9th, 2012 event.

With the loaned Francisco de Goya's Self Portrait with Dr. Arrieta (1820) and the Timken's Cooper Penrose (1802) by Jacques Louis David, guests were inspired to coordinate their fashion ensembles in homage to the two paintings. And they did.

Lori and Bill Walton in the spirit of the 'Art of Fashion'


From frilly to fun, the outfits were art inspired.

This event was chaired by Lori and Bill Walton who also underwrote the dinner. After cocktail hour and much admiration of creative ensembles. guests modeled and spoke about each of their ensembles. From there it was dinner by Chef David Rogow of Dinners by David, with separate tables for the ladies and the gentlemen.

Among the guests were artist Lynda Kerr, her whimsical 'The Glory of Versailles in Paper,' was a hit. Lynda's husband Richard Kerr was there, and so were Anita and Tony Norton, Karen and Don Cohn, Karen wore frilly Chanel, Iris Strauss in frilly Oscar de la Renta accompanied by her husband Matt Strauss, and Valerie Cooper in Alexander McQueen and Harry Cooper in Versace..... of course.

More there were Lisette and Mick Farrell, May and Dr. Emad Zawaideh, Renee and Duane Roth, Joye Blount and Jessie Knight Jr., and Ellen and Tim Zinn.

As noted by Lori Walton, "The Timken is one of the few museums that is free to the public and the 'Art of Fashion' ensures that fine art is available to everyone, not just the people who can afford it."

And the monies raised that evening were increased substantially by Lori and Bill Walton's generosity as noted by Lynda Kerr. "Beautiful, beautiful evening lovingly planned and underwritten by Bill and Lori Walton. Thank you Lori and Bill Walton for all you do to make San Diego a better place!!"

All proceeds for this event will benefit the Timken's educational programs.

The Town Gossip

Back in the day in Beverly Hills, publisher Jack Rourke, the late and great Phyllis Diller and Jerry Pikolysky (the future husband of Lee Clark). Phyllis Diller was a pioneer for female comedians. Loved for her self deprecating wit, and lively zingers, she was a Hollywood legend, a wonderful force.....this photo is from 1987.

by the way ....Jack Rourke was the first social publisher that I worked for in 1990. My first assignment was Esther Williams' surprise birthday party. Her stepson Lorenzo Lamas was one of the guests. - Margo Schwab
