Haute Event: Gucci Introduces Artisan Corner in Bal Harbour Shops Boutique

On Wednesday, October 10 Gucci’s Bal Harbour outpost will formally unveil The Artisan Corner: an in-store area where the brand’s expert craftsmen will be on hand to assemble some of Gucci’s most iconic handbags, including the New Jackie, New Bamboo, Soft Stirrup and Stirrup.

VIPs will have their pick of exclusive skins and colors and will be given the option of personalizing their purchase with hand-embossed monogramming. Jane Abess, Ashley Abess, Judy Zeder and Kara Zeder will host the event, while proceeds from the evening will benefit United Way of Miami Dade. The Artisan Corner will be on display for public viewing from October 9-11.
