Dennis Basso opens flagship store
On the occasion of Dennis Basso opening his very first store, it wasn’t just any cocktail celebration. Rather, some 300 guests made their way to 57th Street on Wednesday night to witness the milestone moment, and hear New York City Councilman Erik Botcher presented the designer with a proclamation from the City of New York recognizing his contributions to the fashion industry, economy, and charitable causes over the last 40 years. Basso’s longtime one hype woman, Martha Stewart, was also on hand to cut the ribbon for the evening. The fête was the cherry on top of numerous celebrations, which have seen Basso receive both a Lifetime Achievement award and fund and design the renovation the Chapel at the New York Presbyterian Hospital in recent months. Joining the beloved designer at the opening and unveiling were Carol Alt, Nicole Miller, Alina Cho, Candace Bushnell, Susan Tish, Fern Mallis, Debbie Bancroft, Jill Roosevelt, and designer Kenny Alpert, who conceptualized the flagship store, and many more. Congrats!
