Over the years, fashion industry veterans and couple James Aguiar and Mark Haldeman have become recognizable fixtures on the NYC social scene, attending events in vibrant, impeccably tailored suits and hosting friends such as Linda Fargo and John Derian at their homes in Brooklyn and upstate New York. Style plays a leading role in their lives, influencing everything from their legendary Easter Parade looks to their inimitable decor choices. It’s no wonder, then, that year after year they mount and decorate one of the city’s most magnificent Christmas trees. A collection of whimsical ornaments, an assortment of colorful lights, and a leopard-print skirt make for a truly festive fir.
