Attendees included Tory Burch, Marissa Mayer and Zack Bogue, Sloan Barnett, Carol and Shelby Bonnie, Sharmin Bock and O.J. Shansby.

Shady art up for auction

Gump’s ‘Made in the Shade’: Gump’s, the eclectic design store in Union Square, handed basic lamp shades to an array of artists, designers and celebrities and asked them to create one-of-a-kind works to be auctioned off on behalf of the California College of Arts.

Guests were treated to food and drinks during the silent auction, followed by the fashion show and live auction where models strutted down the runway with the featured lampshades on their heads.
