Moore design : Before heading for her appearance in " The Vertical Hour" on Broadway Thursday, Julianne Moore buzzed by the Ralph Pucci Gallery to see her handiwork for Lutz + Patmos on display. Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos recruited the actress to be their fall guest designer and she whipped - up a lightweight cardigan inspired by her favorite old sweater. It even has what looks like a tear on the right shoulder - just like Moore's tried-and-true one. "I love how lightweight it is and how narrow the sleeves are."
Moore especially liked that her four-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Liv accompanied her to Lutz + Patmos for design meetings. But not enough to pursue any more fashion-related alliances. "I'll leave design to the professionals. Tina and Marcia are such lovely people and are so gifted." She said.
"And there's nothing here I wouldn't wear" Lutz + Patmos is returning the favor by donating $30 of the purchase of each $475 sweater to the Tuberous Scierosis Alliance, a charity Moore selected.
Glancing around the gallery at the designers' knitwear displayed on Ralph Pucci's mannequins. Moore said, "And this is so much better than a fashion show."
