Attempts to reach Wolkoff’s firm, SWW Creative, were unsuccessful, but people who know and have worked with the uber-connected Manhattanite say the pick heralds a glamorous kickoff to the era of Trump’s Washington. Wolkoff is said to be detail-oriented, gracious but tough, and deft at navigating competing egos.
Her connections span the fashion world, thanks to her stint at Vogue and her job orchestrating New York’s Fashion Week events at Lincoln Center. Her grandfather is the famous jeweler Harry Winston. ”She’s immaculate,” Vogue editor Anna Wintour once said of her. “She makes everyone else feel like a complete mess.”
Most importantly, Wolkoff is a friend of the Trumps.
Inauguration plans are still underway — in 2012, there were only two “official” balls (meaning those hosted by the inaugural committee), though in previous years there have been a dozen or more.
