If sheís not keeping busy doing her unending bit for charity or shuffling between continents on work, Meera Gandhi is busy hosting grand parties and rubbing shoulders with the creme de la creme of society. The other evening, she hosted a fashion show in New York City for Turkish designer Emre, where around 150 of her friends were seen enjoying champagne and Turkish Tapas amidst a fashion furore.

Amongst the high-profile guests present were designer Pilar Rossi, Padma Lakshmi and some names from Mumbaiís swish set too like Ashish Soni and wife Misha, Queenie Dhody and Sharmilla Khanna. From discussing fashion to talking about each otherís travel plans, conversations took a complete U-turn. All in all, an enjoyable afternoon in the other city that never sleeps. With, of course, the party people who never sleep!
