YOUR NAME'S NOT DOWN?

ASTRAGAL IN VENICE

The official launch bash at the Arsenale was a serious do. But there was one major cock up; the organisers had made a mess of the invites - an awful lot of important people were shut out.

Not least Jeremy Till. The award for craftiness goes to engineers Hanif Kara and Albert Taylor.

When faced with an uncooperative security bod on the door, they turned to their favourite client, Zaha Hadid.

She phoned Ricky Burdett (the curator of the whole thing) and Ricky spoke to his people.

Suddenly Hanif and Al were inside quaffing champers.
