Known for his flair as an interior and jewelry designer, Hutton Wilkinson comes to town with a new book and his jewelry collection.
Wilkinson will speak and sign “Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge” at the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1. The book describes the evolution of the elaborately decorated Beverly Hills estate he grew from a 30-by-30 home.
He’ll also debut Tony Duquette Jewelry at a “Tribute to Old Hollywood” reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday at Jay Feder Jewelers on 18th Street. Attendees are asked to RSVP by calling and dress to impress.
Both events are free, but book sales will benefit the historical society, 71 N. Federal Highway.
Wilkinson is known in his own right for his interiors and statement piece jewelry. He was the late Duquette’s protege and collaborator for nearly 30 years. Duquette became famous as a costume and movie set designer during the Golden Age of Hollywood.
