Trunk Show

| April 8, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY It’s the celebration fashion fans had been waiting for since Louis Vuitton moved from Bal Harbour Shops nearly two years ago. The storied French brand lifted the curtain on one of its largest stores in the country (and its permanent space at Aventura Mall) with a cocktail party that celebrated what the house is all about. THE CROWD Michael Burke, chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton Malletier (the brand’s travel component) and ValĂ©rie Chapouland-Flouquet, president and CEO of LV North America, welcomed hundreds of LV fans who were all too eager to check out the mega-boutique’s two floors of style fantasy. THE SCENE Organizers decided to give guests a behind-the-scenes look at the Louis Vuitton artistry through live demonstrations that showcased artisans at work making footwear from scratch at the men’s shoe salon and meticulously personalizing the iconic LV trunks the brand is synonymous with. “There aren’t many retail shops that have caused my jaw to drop,” said Erin Newberg, one of the many people who turned up for the occasion. “This place is a gem. It surpassed all my expectations.” Photography by Seth Browarnik/World Red Eye
