JEAN SHAFIROFF Hosts Party For ROSE HARTMAN'S Book "Incomparable Women of Style" Benefitting The Couture Council - Tuesday, 11/20/2012 3:36 PM

Jean Shafiroff and Rose Hartman

It was a year ago, November, that the artistically edgy, long time photographer Rose Hartman held her initial showing of classic black and white photos via an exhibit in NYC, entitled "Incomparable Women of Style". Hartman's black and white photos of yesteryear are now on the printed page via an exquisite coffee table book bearing the same name. This past Tuesday, November 13th, a book signing for "Incomparable Women of Style" took place at Haven, the rooftop lounge of Midtown West's Sanctuary Hotel, welcoming a stellar crowd.

The evening was an instant success. The savvy Ms. Hartman enlisted friend and philanthropist, Jean Shafiroff (whom Hartman has done several commissioned portraits of), to host the first official signing of her book. The signing, a true charitable endeavor, meant proceeds from the evening's book sales will benefit The FIT Couture Council, a private fashion society, of which Shafiroff is a Board Member. Shafiroff, an enduring lady of style, wore a silk David Meister cocktail dress with a plum hued Gucci fur wrap and matching Christian Louboutins, accented by purple Sermoneta gloves. Hosting, a natural inclination for Ms.Shafiroff, allowed her to showcase her skill for raising awareness for not only the arts, but, specifically, Harman's greatest passion: Photography.

"Incomparable Women of Style", the newly printed book which retails for $40 is expected to be as much of a hit as Hartman's photo exhibit. The shooter's solo exhibit, still going strong, is currently on view at the new Ravestijn gallery in Amsterdam and will run through December.
