Marc Newson & Ronnie Sassoon, London 2011
Famous Australian designer, now London-based, at the London Design Medal dinner, with the wife of the late Vidal Sassoon.
Australian Marc Newson exchanges a joke with Mrs Ronnie Sassoon at the London Design Medal dinner in 2011. Mrs Sassoon had flown in from LA with her husband, the late Vidal Sassoon, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award, as proposed by Thomas Heatherwick (see 32) who won the London Design Medal in 2010. This was a beautiful dinner in the crypt of St Paul's, an experience I shall always remember – though the lighting was very poor, of course.
