The opening cocktail party is tonight, in Florence, Italy. Followed by two days of panel discussions, interviews and presentations at the Palazzo Vecchio, many of them chaired by international Vogue editor Suzy Menkes (pictured). Welcome to the first-ever Condé Nast International Luxury Conference.
A highlight of Day One (April 22) at this sold-right-out event is sure to be the chat between Menkes and Karl Lagerfeld. And on Day Two (April 22), as part of a series of grouped presentations titled “My Florence,” there is this:
Ermanno Scervino, Founder, Ermanno Scervino
In this session, Ermanno Scervino will share what Florence, the city of dreams, culture and imagination, means to him and to his work.
When Condé Nast International chairman and CEO Jonathan Newhouse first tipped the event last fall, he suggested that “through magazines and websites like Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ, Condé Nast is the luxury industry’s leading media partner. The Condé Nast International Luxury Conference will animate our brands in a new way, bringing together top luxury players in a stimulating event to provoke new thinking, forge connections and make things happen.”
