Boogie Down, Bookworms: A Studio 54 Tome Is in the Works

Word broke this morning that nightlife king Ian Schrager, the mind behind Studio 54, will partner with Rizzoli to share tales of the iconic club with a new coffee-table book, due out next year. As Schrager so pithily put it, “If the hunter does not tell the story, the lion will.” We can only hope that said hunter plans to air some juicy tales about Bianca and Mick.

School’s In With J.Crew, Kate Spade, and Frédéric Fekkai

In the fashion business at the moment, there are few retailers who aren’t looking to learn a thing or two from J.Crew. And as luck would have it, CEO Mickey Drexler will be teaching this spring—in one of New York City’s public high schools, that is. As part of Teach for America Week, 20 city notables, including Drexler, hotelier Ian Schrager, hair guru Frédéric Fekkai, and designers Kate and Andy Spade, will head into NYC public school classrooms as guest teachers. At the TFA cocktail party Drexler co-hosted with Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg (pictured, left) at J.Crew’s Fifth Avenue store last night, Schlossberg was quick to give credit where credit was due. “Mickey did all the work,” the attorney and author said. “He basically convinced everyone to sign on.”

“I was a terrible student,” Drexler admitted. “I went to Bronx Science, and the program was so rigorous. If I could go back, I’d do everything different.” That wasn’t the case for his co-host—”I was a pretty good student,” Schlossberg said with a smile, “I would do all my homework and everything.”—but it was for another teacher-to-be. “I was doing fine until I went to law school,” Fekkai told us. “I was there for two and a half years, and I had to quit.” He hits the classroom today. “I’m excited,” the stylist said. “I just hope the kids are, too.”
