The VIP guests enjoyed cocktails, typical Dominican cuisine and live music in the sophisticated villa, which was intact as the iconic designer left it many years ago after his passing. Even his own personal furniture was used throughout the event, making this a unique experience in the region and worldwide. The co-founders Constanza Etro and Silvia Argüello welcomed the +300 notable guests as they gathered to celebrate the unprecedented event, which will culminate with the highly anticipated Awards Ceremony on Saturday, November 4th.
