They shared a love of things green (she emeralds and plants, he malachite); Tony Duquette and Ganna Walska also shared very unconventional views on how to live life. She declared herself the “enemy of the average” and he stated that “the least common denominator is the enemy,” which explains why they had this unique bond and friendship.
On Saturday, March 8, Hutton Wilkinson shares his perspective on their friendship and how they inspired each other. The author of several books— including Tony Duquette, More is More, and Tony Duquette Jewelry —Wilkinson will present a fascinating dialog about two people who influenced fashion, design, society and one another.
The gates will open at 1PM for an optional highlight tour of the gardens. The lecture will start promptly at 2PM, followed by a reception where Mr. Wilkinson will be available to sign copies of his book, “Tony Duquette Jewelry.” Selected pieces of jewelry will be on display and available for purchase.
