All the designers I love are Italian.” Kelly Rutherford, the tall blond lady, is an expert of everything which is elegant, fashionable and, of course, Italian. In her Gossip Girl’s role as the uber-posh Lily van der Woodsen, she moves in the most fashionable circle in New York City.
At the Italian promotion event organized by the Italian Trade Commission (ITC) on Tuesday, Ms. Rutherford -- along with other fashion experts and lovers -- invited everyone who wants to know as much as she does about the best of Italian style in the city, to visit Shop Italy NYC. This is a one-month series of consumer shopping experiences and promotions, organized by the ITC, which started on June 15-16 in the Meatpacking district. From 5 pm to 8 pm, at the Shop Italy NYC’s VIP Hospitality Tent in Gansevoort Square, visitors find information about the events that the Italian shops and restaurants are hosting in the area.
Shop Italy NYC will continue on June 22, 23, 29 ad 30 on Madison Avenue; July 6 and 7 in SoHO. “More than 50 shops and restaurants are taking part to the event,” said Aniello Musella, Italian Trade Commissioner for the United States. “This is a 360-degree event. Shop Italy NYC has brought together for the first time fashion, design and food in all of Manhattan. It is important to be together in promoting the Italian lifestyle in the US,” Mr. Musella said.
