Frasch, opened the store's doors to celebrate the special partnership between the retailer and Italian cashmere designer, Brunello Cucinelli. Hailing from Umbria, the "king of cashmere's" ethical business practices follow his ultimate dream of modern capitalism, where profit is used to better the condition of humanity. Fittingly, in addition to the evening toasting his craftsmanship, it was also inspired by joint support of the Henry Street Settlement. Guests included Krista Schulz, Rachel Roy, Consul General of Italy Francesco Talo, and Lesley Schulhof.
