Milan Joins the Black NAFA Celebration
As the fur trade moved on to the MIFUR exhibition in Milan, Italy, the NAFA marketing team was adding the final touches to the much anticipated Black NAFA 10th Anniversary celebration in this historic fur capital.
On Tuesday, March 5th, 2013, when over 300 VIP guests arrived at Il Gattopardo, one of the city’s trendiest nightspots, excitement ran high. Many media representatives were on hand, including World Fashion TV and Russia’s popular Fashion Channel TV along with journalists from trade and fashion magazines.
After guests had enjoyed the pre-event cocktail reception, Diane Benedetti, NAFA Senior Vice-President Marketing, welcomed guests to the Milan festivities in honor of the 10th Anniversary of the Black NAFA label.
A moment was also taken to honor the buyers of Top Lots at the February NAFA auction, including those who purchased the ten Anniversary Lots of Black NAFA mink. These special guests were invited on stage to receive a plaque and have photos taken with Bobby Poulios, Vice President of Buyer Relations. For the final award to VolZa Fur for its purchase of the Anniversary Lot of Zimbal Black NAFA Mink which sold for a record $3,600 per pelt, Valerie Zimbal joined the group on stage to present the award.
The catwalk was then flooded with light and the parade of the Anniversary Collection of Black NAFA Mink began. This unique collection features one garment from ten leading prêt-a-porter designers from ten different countries. The star-studded list includes: Gianfranco Ferré, Italy; Michael Kors, USA; Guy Laroche, France; Chapurin, Russia; Lie Sang Bong, Korea; Mark Cheung, China; Vlassis Holevas, Greece; Lucian Matis, Canada; James Long, Great Britain; and Carmen Alen, Argentina.
These stunning designs created by fashion maestros in the world’s finest quality of mink were greeted with much enthusiasm and set the tone for a night of high spirits. Guests were all in agreement that NAFA had reached a true milestone with Black NAFA and that NAFA was the brand of the future.
