In case you missed the memo: Venice is sinking.  And, with the horrible flood last year, it's up to us to help save the amazing treasures stored there. Last night, TOD'S, at 650 Madison Avenue, opened its doors for shoppers with a mission-to SAVE VENICE. Tod's, along with VOGUE held a benefit night for the 34 year old art-saving organziation. Champagne flowed, and DJ Mel DeBarge played music, as guests leisurely scouted out items to buy in support of the cause. Among the shoppers we could find Adelina Wong Ettelson, Emma Snowdon-Jones, Luigi Tadini, Simon van Kempen, Alex McCord, Blair Voltz Clarke, Alina Cho and more.
