For the evening, Hadleigh’s owners Gable and Ed Shaikh expanded their bespoke boutique by creating a sleek living area outside enhanced with pots of hot pink peonies courtesy of Cebolla Fine Flowers, the Art in Bloom 2014 floral sponsor and master class host.  Partygoers mingled over wine and hors d’oeuvres as models showcased the store’s custom clothing and luxury accessories.
