Arianna Huffington Hosts Party for Daughter’s Collaboration With Sarah Flint

ARIANNA GETS HAPPY: Thrive Global founder Arianna Huffington threw a party Wednesday night in honor of her daughter Isabella’s new collaboration with shoe designer Sarah Flint.
The twentysomething Huffington’s art has been shown at Rebecca Minkoff’s Los Angeles gallery and in Ports 1961’s store. Through a collaboration with the travelwear company Summersalt, Huffington will help launch a swimsuit soon. Flint, meanwhile, is using a butterfly print from one of Huffington’s paintings for the new shoes.
Huffington said of her new kicks with Flint, “I love the idea of wearable art. If you make a painting, it’s just for one person. If you make a shoe, it has to be something that a lot of people will love.”
Her “reimagined” portraits of women from the 18th and 19th centuries” were on display in the apartment’s study. Five years out of Yale, the younger Huffingon lives within walking distance of her mother’s SoHo pad, and asks her for advice from time to time. The Thrive founder’s most sound advice is, “A lot of times people think, ‘I’ll be happy if I get this or this, or if this happens or that happens.’ If you’re not happy now, you’re not going to be happy when that happens.
