What: Tod's Grand Opening.
Where: Tod's boutique in The Galleria.
The 411: Fans of the luxury Italian brand celebrated the new Houston store, admiring the fine leather goods and colorful shoes for women and men in the glittering 2,000-square-foot space. The new Wave handbag collection, designed by Tod's creative director Alessandra Facchinetti, drew a ton of lustful admiration.
Guests sipped on prosecco and sampled hors d'ouevres from A Fare Extraordinaire and watched as an artisan flown in from Italy monogrammed the iconic Tod's Gommino loafers for customers throughout the evening. A portion of sales benefited the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
