Roberto Cavalli store opening in Aoyama, Tokyo
A week before Fashion’s night out, a friend invited me to the opening of Roberto Cavalli store in Aoyama. I wasn’t feeling well that night but decided to go anyway because let’s face it, invitations like that don’t come very often. ^-^ And I am glad I went because the event was beautiful all the way – red carpet, A-list celebrities, champagne and tasty food galore.. I also ended up meeting lots of interesting people and making some really good friends.
Among all the people I saw and met that night were some of my favorite Japanese celebrities like Jessica and Ai Tominaga. I was also psyched to see Hidetoshi Nakata stylish and nonchalant as always.
The catering was gorgeous. Besides these beautiful canapes that were available throughout the whole night (and not just the first 20 minutes like at most parties), we were also given gift bags with Roberto Cavalli macaroons. My husband had a very delicious breakfast the next morning. ^-^
The store itself was exquisite. There were beautiful gowns and jewelry everywhere. You could try on or take a picture of everything you wanted.. It’s like a dream for a fashion blogger.. Me, I was too nervous to touch anything but I absolutely fell in love with some of the pieces like the sequined dresses – they were so dreamy… Store models and some of the celebrities were dressed in RC gowns as well.
At the party, I ran into some friends who I used to work with at TV Asahi and random modeling jobs back in the day.
And then, I happened to meet some wonderful people – fashion bloggers, radio DJs and graphic designers like me. We hit it off right away and ended up going to the after party together. By the way, the after party was at the newest Shibuya club “Vision”.
Marco Scardigli, the director of Roberto Cavalli Japan was so kind to introduce me to Roberto Cavalli himself and then snap this picture of us. Thank you so much Marco!
The party was an absolute success. I had a wonderful time exactly when I needed it the most. Thank you Elizabeth for inviting me. ^-^
