NEW YORK, Nov 21, 2008 / Fw/ — Ashley Olsen, Monica Cruz, Dakota Johnson Griffith, Dree Hemmingway, Richie Rich among others, graced the gala launch of the Mango flagship store newly restored façade and the holiday store window.
Held last night, with the glitterati in attendance, the presence of Mango President Isak Andic added festiveness to the event as Spain’s #1 fashion retailer subliminally showed its support to the American retail scene even with the U.S. faltering economy.
MANGO has 1,213 retail locations in 92 countries, including 20 stores in the United States, with plans to open a total of over 180 new stores in 2009.
After the grand opening in SoHo, 80 VIP guests attended a private dinner at the brand new Shang Restaurant at the Thompson LES Hotel – only the second event at this incredible new space.
