Joseph Cicio Celebrates the Release of First Book "FRIENDS* *Bearing Gifts"

Joseph Cicio
Last month, Josie Natori hosted a cocktail party to celebrate the release of Joseph Cicio's first book "FRIENDS* *Bearing Gifts" at the Club Room in The Lowell Hotel. 

Nancy Kissinger and Josie Natori

  The book emphasizes the importance of relationships, and is a reflection on a life filled with warmth, beauty, and ultimately exceptional memories. Lauren Bacall, Prince Charles, Audrey Hepburn, and Joan Rivers are just a few of the cherished relationships chronicled in this new memoir published by Pointed Leaf Press. Unique essays on each friend are told through the beautiful objects they gifted the author and feature stunning photography of his Connecticut home. 

  Throughout the room were elegant flower arrangements, the signature of restaurateur Charles Masson, which included masses of peonies, a favorite of Nancy Kissinger, who wrote the book’s elegant forward, and a central collage motif on the book's cover designed by Ernesto Artillo. Spring buds were definitely on the minds of Cicio and Kissinger as they cozied up to discuss the lilacs now blooming at both their Connecticut gardens. Following cocktails the festive mood continued with an intimate dinner at Majorelle with Dawn Mello and the book's publisher Suzy Slesin

Fashion notables Jeffrey BanksRose Marie Bravo, Cece Cord, Cathy Hardwick, Art & Fran ReinerCarolyne RoehmBenny Tabatabai and Adrienne Vittadini were on hand to congratulate Cicio. Media personalities Jeanette Chang, Andrew ChurchillPamela Fiori, Sharon Hoge, Shirley LordChristopher Mason and William O’Shaughnessy all showed their support. Gentlemen of style including Geoffrey Bradfield, Richard Keith Langham, Alex Papachristidis and Ralph Pucci also came to cheer on Cicio. Other guests included Jerry & Joan AdlerYana Avis, Edgar BatistaMaria Elena Christiansen, Carmen D'AlessioSusan GutfreundRoz Jacobs, Veronica KellyThe Amazing Kreskin, Jeanne Lawrence, Iris Love, and Dr. Luca Parolari.
