Haute Event: Ferragamo Hosts a Cocktail Reception for the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts


Luxury Italian fashion house Ferragamo threw one haute bash over the weekend to announce the Oct. 17 inaugural gala for the grand opening of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.

Wallis Annenberg and Jamie Tisch co-chaired the star studded event which celebrated the Annenberg’s transformation of an entire Beverly Hills city block into a vibrant new cultural destination.

It will house two new buildings, including the historic 1934 Italianate-style Beverly Hills Post Office and the new 500-seat, state-of-the art Goldsmith Theater.

The evening will unveil the 2.5 acre center and present a performance in the Goldsmith Theatre created exclusively for the gala.  Following the performance, the night will continue with dinner and dancing.  The Inaugural Gala highlights a week-long series of opening events including an exclusive runway presentation of Salvatore Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection in the Historic Post Office on the eve of the gala.

Guests at the May 3 kickoff cocktail reception, including Angie Harmon, Jessica Joffe, Monique Lhullier, Liz Goldwyn, Minnie Mortimer and Alexandra von Furstenberg were treated to a presentation of Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti’s Fall/Winter 2013 runway collection.
