I haven’t been involved in a disco party blowout in a long time, but when my dear friend Marjorie Gubelmann, a.k.a. “DJ Mad Marj,” asks anything, my answer is always yes.

Last night, Chanel threw a bash for “The Little Black Jacket,” an exhibition at the Swiss Institute curated by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.
