The familiar sounds of Donna Summer’s disco hits welcomed guests as they arrived at Christie’s Beverly Hills location last Thursday. With spicy margaritas in hand, attendees, including Camilla Marcus, Brooke DeVard Ozaydinli, and Savanna Dohler, perused Summer’s impressive collection ahead of an intimate panel with the late artist’s family. Christie’s senior specialist of Americana, books, and manuscripts, Peter Klarnet, spoke with Summer’s widower, Bruce Sudano, and her children, Brooklyn Sudano, Amanda Sudano Ramirez and Mimi Sommer, about the process of cataloging Summer's personal belongings, accompanying her on tour, and their personal favorite items included in the auction.
