They’ve got the Power

Posted by Mary Jo Almeida-Shore On April - 26 - 2009

Nick and TaraFlorida International magazine hosted its annual Power Players event at the Epic Hotel on
Thursday to honor this year’s most influential Floridians in various distinct categories including:  Dealmakers, Communicators, Innovators, Headliners, Design Minds, Warriors and New Guard.  Every year, this party attracts like minded individuals who are making noise in their respective fields, for all the right reasons, and can be counted amongst those select few who are responsible for taking our young city to new heights. This year’s Power Players include Nick D’Annunzio, Tara Solomon, and Michael Capponi, who were honored in the Communicators category, but would be named in every category if we had any say.  The list of Power Players runs the gamut from top chef, Jeff McInnis, and philanthropist, Constance Collins, to savvy business women like Renata Black (Lingerie Miami), gallery owner, David Castillo, famous collector, Dorothy Blau, Miami native and future daughter-in-law to Diane Von Furstenberg, Ali Kay, hair guru, ORIBE, (who donated free conditioning treatments and blowouts for the gift bags) and Alissa Christine, photographer.
London-based Tony Lutwyche, crossed the Pond to attend the party.  Lutwyche is partially responsible for the sudden influx of Bondesque, exceptionally well-dressed men parading around our fair state. Lutwyche has brought his signature tailoring concept to the States, starting right here in South Florida. The team responsible for the Power Players issue and event include:  Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, Esther Jackson, Publisher/Creative Director, Phyllis Pesaturo, Managing Editor, Luis Rigual, Fashion and Beauty Editor, Jilian Sanz, writer, Caroline Flitter and National Account Executive, Josh Fein.

Roberto Cavalli celebrated the grand re-opening of the Roberto Cavalli Roberto CavalliBoutique in Bal Harbour.  The largest and most lavish Roberto Cavalli boutique to date, the boutique spans a total 3,000 square feet, and holds men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, lingerie, pets, jewelry, time and eyewear collections. The boutique offers plenty of dramatic touches such as a special lingerie area hidden behind curtains of Swarovski crystals, and a private area where the décor changes depending on the theme of the current season’s runway presentation. With velvet covered couches and unique pieces, the VIP area evokes a luxurious environment offering the ultimate shopping experience.

The evening featured a preview of the Pre-Collection and Fall/Winter 2009-2010 Runway Collection along with the new Cavalli Pet line by Eva Cavalli, Roberto’s wife.

In addition to Roberto Cavalli Vodka, a tasting of the Cavalli Tenuta Degli Dei, the newest red from the Cavalli winery started by Roberto and his son Tommaso was served. Cavalli Tenuta Degli Dei is a product of the land in the Panzano region of Chianti which Roberto’s son Tommaso transformed into a wine region in 2000.
