A store party on a summer Friday? It happened in L.A. this weekend, when Nicole Richie, florist Eric Buterbaugh, and Nevena Borissova celebrated interior designer Ryan Korban and his new book, Ryan Korban: Luxury Redefined, at Borissova's West Hollywood store, Curve. "He's a young designer who does retail very well," said Borissova, who collaborated with Korban on her Bond Street outpost. "We wanted to give him a big welcome to L.A.," she continued, pointing to walls plastered with life-size imagery from the book, which combines photos of interiors he's decorated and visuals from photographers like Inez & Vinoodh, Helmut Newton, and Peter Lindbergh that continue to inspire him.

Amber Valletta, Jessica Joffe, and Langley Fox all turned out to raise a glass. "When I'm in New York, I tend to go fashion-heavy," Korban said of setting the event in L.A., where he spends a good amount of time furniture shopping and immersing himself in the interior-design world. "I felt like here we should mix it up a bit and bring interesting people together and get them excited about interior design." One such enthusiast has been Alexander Wang, who enlisted Korban to decorate both his loft apartment and Soho flagship store, and also contributed to the book. "I think Ryan has incredible taste and really knows how to cater it to all different types of personalities," Wang said. "He's very aware of environments and how to make that environment play a big role, in the same way that I do in clothes and accessories."
