I am back in Chicago after a nice sunny week in Florida and getting back in the saddle. My trip was amazing and I have so much to tell you about! Over the last three years, I have been regularly traveling to the Sunshine State to produce private trunk shows where my clients come to shop. The collection changes from season to season and it is brimming with items that I hand select from some of the most luxurious collections available.
This particular show was a little bit different; even more amazing, in fact! I had the opportunity to partner with the great MOSI Tampa team. Ms Molly Demeulanere, VP of Development for MOSI, is fabulous! Lively, beautiful, fashionable and most importantly, passionate about her work and growing the museum on a daily basis. Only a woman with that much swagger can pull of a mohawk and be a VP at the same time!
I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet Mr. Wit Ostrenko, President and CEO of MOSI Tampa. The honor was mine as he truly lives up to every great compliment I have to come to hear of him. That evening he sported a beautiful red scarf; to boot, which is a bonus in my book!
Another highlight was the Annus Mirabilis dinner, held at a private Bayshore estate in Tampa. The hosts are two of the greatest people I have met. Generous, funny, classy and have pristine taste! Chef Fabio Viviani was the featured guest and he prepared a delicious meal that left you stunned. Yum, seconds please! He performed a fromscratch demonstration of gnocci. My favorite! He is quick witted, passionate, sharp as a tack and a sense of humor that both men and women alike can appreciate.
Each of the 100 guests received a tote bag filled with goodies! It is the first official THEPERSPEKTIVE tote! There are a few left on hand; if you would like one, please send an email and I will personally send one while supplies last.
Mr. Jason Champion executed the event with such finesse and the outcome was breathtaking. The lighting, ambiance, music and setting. Quite a sexy vibe. His Prada shoe collection will rival any collector I know and he will be up for the challenge!
All in all it was wonderful and I thank each and everyone! I saw all my favorite ladies and developed some great new relationships in the process.
I hope you enjoy the pics!
