On a day when most are attempting to get over the hump that the middle of the week brings, the evening of January 16th, 2013 brought several attendees into the weekend rather nicely. The occasion: the debut of LR. Paris. Guests were welcomed with wine-glasses toasting to smiles and a scrumptious array of hors d’oeuvres. VIP executives and members of the press gathered in celebratory fashion at Bahr Che wine bar in NYC.
Hosted by CCO Charles Dolige & CEO Michael Breault, along with Business & Product Development Manager, Claire Mauger, and CFO Gerard Manfredonia of LR. Paris, the evening wasn’t anything short of successful. With offices in Hong Kong, Washington D.C. and San Juan, Puerto Rico, NYC will be yet another to call home.
Among the VIP Executives, some of the outstanding, widely recognized professionals in their respective industries included, billionaire hotelier, Vikram Chatwal, Director of Operations at Ralph Lauren, Alexander Cook, celebrity fashion stylist, Ana Rita, and Vice President of Sales at DKNY Jeans, Ken Fleishman.
