Sorry Ladies, He’s Taken


Trovata designer John Whitledge is getting married this spring, but that didn’t stop him from basking in some lady love on Tuesday night. Hosting a dinner at Delicatessen to celebrate his show, Whitledge was surrounded by fashionable femmes including Made Her Think’s Meredith Kahn and stylists/Rose designers Britt Bardo and Jewels Steger. “What can I say?” the designer joked. “The chicks dig me…” And dig his clothes: The first (favorable) reviews of Trovata’s Fall ’09 collection were trickling in as meat loaf and mac ‘n’ cheese arrived on the table, accompanied by Champagne. “I don’t want to know, I’m too nervous,” Whitledge said, waving away his publicist’s proffered BlackBerry. “It’s not so much the idea of being reviewed that makes me nervous, as it is the fact that it’s right after the show that I get my first chance to be anything other than totally nonstop working. The nerves kind of hit all at once. I get a little…” Postpartum? “Listen,” Whitledge said, laughing. “There may be a lot of women at this table, but I’m pretty sure I’m not one of them.”
