DALLAS, Mar 20, 2009 / FW/ — With the theme ‘Sustainable Luxury,’ the International Herald Tribune’s annual luxury business conference will be held from Mar 24 – 26, 2009 at the Imperial Hotel in New Delhi, which incidentally falls within the dates of Lakme Fashion Week which is being held in Mumbai, 719.53 miles (1157.94 kilometers) away.
So, while India’s fashionistas are inland at New Delhi, the world’s fashion elite are at the coast in Mumbai discussing the future of sustainable luxury and one of the most prominent speakers is Florentine designer Roberto Cavalli who will speak on the topic “Bollywood vs. Hollywood.”
Well-known for his Hollywood and A-list celebrities’ connection, Roberto Cavalli is the best choice to discuss the entertainment industry’s effect on fashion and luxury.
In February during Milan Fashion Week, Roberto Cavalli launched the “Cavalli Card”, a MasterCard credit card. With the Roberto Cavalli logo on a stylized Maison Cavalli snakeskin ‘signature’ print, the branded Cavalli Card promises cardholders a host of premium benefits – each specifically tailored to their needs and lifestyle.
Within a week of the Cavalli Card launch, during Paris Fashion Week, Roberto Cavalli opened his flagship store at Paris’ rue Saint-Honoré.
Speaking of stores, while in New Delhi, Roberto Cavalli will visit the Just Cavalli boutique in New Delhi located at the shopping mall DLF Emporio, opened last September 2008, the first and the only Cavalli-branded flagship in India.
