Last Saturday we revealed our newest property in Milan, set to open in two years. Before we begin the renovation on this landmark building, we’ve welcomed the legendary Anna Dello Russo to host an exclusive auction, dinner and party during Milan Fashion Week.

The three-act event conceived by Anna Dello Russo took the audience by storm. Models such as Hailey Baldwin, Jasmine Sanders and Izabel Goulart showed thirty looks from her extensive archive of legendary outfits including items by Dolce & Gabanna, Versace, Fendi and Chanel, dating from 1985 to now. The entertaining auction was presented by Christiano de Lorenzo of Christie's and all proceeds went to the Swarovski Foundation to support young fashion talent. 

The auction was followed by an exclusive dinner on the first floor of the building, hosted by Nadja Swarovski. Followed by a late-night fête where close friends of Anna, like Giovanna Battaglia, Maurizio Cattelan, Natasha Poly, Peter Dundas, Linda Fargo, Linda Tol and Marjan Jonkman danced the night away.  

We would like to thank Anna Dello Russo and the Karlo Otto team for organizing this incredible event at our Milanese palazzo. What a terrific way to warm up the space and foreshadow the exciting times to come. Ciao for now!
