Forgive me, friends… It’s two days after the big event and I am only blogging about this now… blame it on the photographer who could not get the pictures to me sooner 🙂
All I can say is that it was a dream. I arrived at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan’s Via Gesu and I think I looked the part in my figure-hugging black dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. The who’s who of Montenapoleone’s fashion crowd turned up for the cocktail party including representatives from Ralph Lauren, Jaeger Le Coultre, Rolex, Montblanc and many more as well as our partners, Sara Bernabe from Premier Tax Free and Guglielmo Miani, The CEO of Larusmiani and President of the Via Montenapoleone Association.
Andrea insisted that I say a few words, so in a nutshell, I explained what Montenapoleone means to tourists who visit Milan to shop and I also attempted to let the VIP’s understand the importance of this shopping guide written with a twist for tourists by a tourist, hoping that they see the value in a publication that gives an outsiders perspective.
On the hole, it was a huge success and according to Andrea and Daniele, the positive response from all the boutique stores has been overwhelming. A thumbs up to the entire team who made this possible… Andrea, Daniele, Alessandra, Valentina, Francesca and the PR ladies, Maria and Isa.
I am truly blessed to work with you all 🙂
