SEPTEMBER IN DEL MAR ISN’T QUITE THE SAME AS IT IS IN OTHER CITIES. We’re not flipping our entire wardrobes or battening down the hatches for impending bad weather. But September style’s still special here. For one thing, this is the month when we Del Martians perfect our festival-wear game. To get you ready, our editors hit up some of their favorite local boutiques in pursuit of on-point ideas for your KAABOO looks. It’s also the time of year when we pore over pictures from opening day at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. In this issue you’ll find an all-access look at the iconic annual after-party at L’Auberge Del Mar, our own Del Mar Lifestyle opening day party, plus some millinery hits from the day. We’re also packing a punch of fresh jewelry and handbag looks this month, from local Reine Krief, plus a peek at who's trending in Instagram fashion. And we’re offering up all the details on a new annual event that should make your September social calendar. The Del Mar-based Diabetes Research Connection will launch its

Finally, it’s with a heavy heart that I share the news of a tremendous loss our community has experienced. In July, Jennifer Muzio Austin, the former managing editor of Del Mar Lifestyle and a beloved wife and mother, passed away from cancer. She will be dearly missed. I will be keeping her family in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope that you will do the same. Thank you,

DESIGNER REINE KRIEF TURNS A HOBBY INTO A CREATIVE PASSION HANDCRAFTING ORIGINAL PRODUCTS AND CUSTOM JEWELRY ARTICLE F. A. NEWTON PHOTOGRAPHY MADELINE GARRETT PHOTOGRAPHY

R

ONE OF A KIND. Those words have never been truer than when talking about BijouRocks by Reine Krief and Reine Krief Leather and Accessories. BijouRocks, located in quaint coastal Solana Beach within Bella Sareena Spa, is a unique boutique that specializes in handmade jewelry and handbags. Creating new pieces and repurposing antique pieces has been a lifelong passion for designer Reine Krief. “I have been interested in, started collecting and using vintage jewelry pieces as a hobby since I was a teenager," she says. "I love the history aspect of vintage or antique pieces and the stories they could tell and the fact that they are given new life in my designs.  I suppose growing up, studying and working in the fashion industry prepared me for where I am today.” It is also true that big things come from small beginnings, Reine began by showing and selling pieces online, at select events and trunk shows. Reine’s boutique, BijouRocks, originated as a trial at Bella Sareena Spa with only a single glass case featuring pieces of her custom-made jewelry. That glass case, which was put in place in September 2016, has since blossomed into an inspiring artisan’s boutique that features Reine Krief’s custom-made jewelry and accessories; a collection of handbags imported from Italy that have been designed by Reine herself; and handcrafted scarves woven from imported cotton, linen, silk and cashmere. Perhaps what Reine takes the most pride in is working closely with customers to craft jewelry and accessories. Reine will collaborate with customers to imagine and realize one-of-a-kind bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings, among other pieces. CONTINUED >

The beloved smash hit of the London and Broadway stages conjures its way to North Coast Rep for a spirited and hilarious evening in Noël Coward’s BLITHE SPIRIT. A socialite novelist, an eccentric medium, an unforgiving ex-wife, and a shrewish spouse create supernatural hijinks in this world‑class comedy. You are summoned for an otherworldly evening of theatre overflowing with wit, sophistication, and effervescent fun.

WEST COAST PREMIERE

OCTOBER 17–NOVEMBER 11, 2018 BY JEFFREY HATCHER

DIRECTED BY DAVID ELLENSTEIN

Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher has conceived a masterful scenario in which three men claim to be the missing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson is called upon to do some sleuthing. Prepare yourself for a fast‑paced, thrilling, suspenseful story that will keep you guessing. This West Coast premiere is a very worthy addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon and will challenge the most astute mystery buff.

“I soon realized customers loved the unique styles and the one-on-one attention I could give them, especially when they found out I could customize the jewelry they saw in my shop or custom-make just about anything they could want that I didn't have available,” she says. Reine and her boutique will continue to evolve and grow. “I am currently working on and hope to present my new wholesale Reine Krief  leather collections to buyers on the market for originality and personality with a focus on creativity. I am hoping to continue building both BijouRocks and Reine Krief brands and expand to other markets like Orange County, LA and San Francisco before attempting the East Coast.” Whether you’re seeking an original piece of jewelry, having an antique or heirloom repurposed, looking for a unique bridal piece or a Reine Krief-designed handbag, artisan and designer Reine Krief looks forward to collaborating and creating with you. 128 E.

CROWD FUNDING A CURE HOW FOUR LOCALS HOPE GOOD FOOD, AN OPEN BAR AND A SILENT DANCE PARTY WILL HELP CURE TYPE 1 DIABETES ARTICLE KATE ARCIERI PHOTOGRAPHY ZEMINA ZAFERAKIS

“WE’RE NOVEL BOTH IN TERMS OF OUR PLATFORM AND THE RESEARCH THAT WE’RE FUNDING.” 28

Del Mar Lifestyle | September 2018


EINSTEIN WAS A 26-YEAR-OLD UNKNOWN SCIENTIST WHEN HE REVEALED THE FIRST OF HIS THEORIES OF RELATIVITY. It’s that kind of early-career scientific innovation that a cadre of locals is dedicated to finding. And this month, they’re hoping you’ll dance an evening away with them in support of that goal. On Sept. 29, the Del-Mar-based national nonprofit Diabetes Research Connection will hold its inaugural Dance for Diabetes. The night will be noteworthy for its casual, fun-first tone—expect tasty food stations, an open bar, music from Susan Foster of Encore Event Entertainment and a decidedly different vibe than other dressed-tothe-nines Del Mar events. But it’s also remarkable as a coming-out party of sorts for one of the most innovative nonprofits around. A SANDBOX FOR SCIENTISTS Founded in 2012, the DRC serves as an incubator of scientific talent. Co-founder and Board Chair David Winkler—the well-known Del Mar lawyer and entrepreneur who himself was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 6—describes it this way: “We’re novel both in terms of our platform and the research that we’re funding,”  he says. “We support researchers who have difficulty accessing dollars from the NIH or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, because as a general rule they don’t fund anything under $100,000. We start at $50,000 to feed the research pipeline. Their platform will feel familiar if you’ve ever backed a cold brew coffee maker on Kickstarter or seeded a folding bike on Indiegogo. The DRC website features the fresh faces of 17 scientists who believe they know a path to knocking out diabetes. Read descriptions of their proposed projects, decide which researchers you think should get to execute their proposals, and vote with 100 percent of your dollars going to the scientists’ labs. Once a funding goal is hit and the research begins, you can track the project’s progress on the website as well. It’s crowdfunding for a cure, and early signs are that it’s working. The proof of our success is our scientists are able to line up additional significant funding,” says renowned diabetes expert and researcher Dr. Alberto Hayek. He serves as DRC’s president and is one of its co-founders. Dr. Hayek notes one scientist, for instance after DRC-backed some of their research it led to the awarding of a million-dollar grant from a private foundation and additional funds from the NIH to further the research. “Dr. Hayek was able to assemble a scientific review committee of over 80 of the top diabetes researchers in the United States and Canada who review these grant applications and determine whether or not the research is sound enough to end up on our website,” David says. WHY WE DANCE The crowdfunding model is banging on all cylinders in support

access to the event-planning expertise of Dance for Diabetes Chair Sherry Ahern. Sherry and her husband, Kevin, have been supporting the DRC from its start and have a son with diabetes. But the time wasn’t right until now. “We really have been laying the groundwork,” Christina says. “We’re at a place where we’re able to support an event like this, year over year.” And, according to David, it’s needed. “One of the things that's really important about our website is that 100 percent of donations directed to a researcher's lab go directly to that researcher, not to overhead. So events like this one cover some of our inevitable overhead,” he says. PUTTING THE FUN IN CROWDFUNDING “It’s basically going to be a fun, fun, F-U-N in capital letters party!” Sherry says. “You’re going to be dancing under the stars at Del Mar Plaza—fabulous food, great local restaurants, open bar.” It’s a perfectly planned location, Sherry notes, since it was David and his business partner Ivan Gayler who built Del Mar Plaza back in 1989. There’s also complimentary valet parking—plus a late-night silent dance party! The combination of Del Mar’s noise ordinance and us not wanting to disturb the neighbors, means that at 9:30 p.m., the band will keep playing, but people will put headsets on for a fun silent dance party,” David says. The evening’s food stations will feature creations from Pacifica Del Mar, Shimbashi Izakaya, Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13, Il Fornaio Cucina Italiana, Sbicca and Rendezvous Modern Chinese Cuisine. A silent auction will offer indulgences up for bid such as a resort stay in Maui, members-only access to the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and an oceangoing luncheon on a private boat. Sherry expects attendees to be a mix of people with diabetes in their family, those already involved with the organization, as well as folks who just want to attend a great party. It’s teaching those newcomers about the DRC that will equal a win to Sherry. “If we can get through to just a few people, that’s a great thing.” For
