“Who’s my plus one to events? I don’t get invited to these events!” Sharon Socol joked Tuesday night at a Barneys New York party. In fact, the night was all about Socol, who is married to former Barneys CEO Howard Socol. As his plus one to many an event over the years, Sharon snapped candid photos at parties, shows, backstage — you name it. She compiled the crème de la crème into her first book “Plus One: An Outsider’s Photographic Journey Into the World of Fashion”, and of course, we there there to celebrate with her.
