MILAN, May 2, 2010 – Italian luxury jeweller Damiani has opened two new boutiques — in Singapore and Lebanon – and has hosted an exclusive event in Kazakhstan featuring guest of honour Sophia Loren, the celebrated Hollywood actress.
Besides these two openings in March, Damiani celebrated the 5th anniversary of its boutique in the luxury Hotel Rixo Almaty in downtown Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Many VIPs wore Damiani creations. The guest of honour was a radiant Sophia Loren who, together with Giorgio Damiani, hosted the social event attended by the elite of Kazakhstan’s industrial, cultural, political, and entertainment world.
The Damiani boutique in Singapore was opened in the Resort World complex of Sentosa Island that includes more than 70 international luxury brands, from jewellery and watches to fashion and cosmetics.
The project launched in partnership with Valiram Group, the largest distributor of luxury goods in Southeast Asia, aims to expand Valiram’s portfolio of international brands with the addition of Damiani as an ambassador of Italian craftsmanship.
The new boutique in Beirut, Lebanon, is on the main street of the city’s luxury shopping district.
Damiani’s partner for this project is Aishti, a leader of the fashion and luxury goods sector in Lebanon and the Middle East.
“We are ready to face these important new challenges offered by new markets,” said Guido Damiani, President and CEO of Damiani Group.
“This strategy shows our group’s determination to continue its international expansion and to enter rapidly-growing markets in the luxury goods sector.”
Damiani’s new boutiques join others located in the main fashion and luxury goods shopping districts of Milan, Paris, London, Moscow, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Macau, Cancun, Kiev, Rome, Florence, Venice, Dubai, Osaka, Seoul, Taipei, Honolulu, and Almaty.
