NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Tuesday October 12, Grazia USA, the American version of the Italian fashion bible Grazia from the Mondadori Group, celebrated its print publication debut in the world’s largest luxury market with a cocktail reception at Zero Bond in New York City.
The evening was co-hosted by Brendan Monaghan, Executive Vice President & Global Chief Brands Officer and David Thielebeule, Editor-in-Chief of Grazia USA, who were joined by industry executives, VIPs and NYC socialites for the celebration.
Notable attendees at the exclusive industry event included; Maxwell Osbourne, Victor Glemaud, Elisabeth Jones Hennessy, Nathan Orsman, Nikoloz Makhatadze, Carly Cushnie, Thom Filicia, Brian Atwood, Jake Deutsch, Sabine Heller, Evan O’Hara & Gigi Burris.
Grazia USA made its digital debut in Fall 2020 with online cover star Kim Kardashian West. The first-ever print issue of the quarterly fashion and lifestyle book began circulation in late September 2021 and is available nationwide now featuring three inspirational cover stars; South Sudanese-British model and designer, Alek Wek, America’s most decorated Olympic track athlete ever, Allyson Felix and the breakout star of Gossip Girl on HBO Max, Jordan Alexander.
"The arrival of Grazia in the United States is a highly significant event, the first time an all-Italian fashion magazine lands on the U.S. market with a formula that gives a perfect answer to the new needs of readers, users and business," Ernesto Mauri, CEO of the Mondadori Group, said. "In today’s historical juncture, it bears witness to the strength of the brand that has always stood at the forefront, becoming an icon of international renown, leveraging on its authoritative content and incomparable identity."
Over 100 guests were invited by Grazia USA to the Tuesday night celebration to enjoy cocktails and canapés while The Misshapes provided the event soundtrack. White pampas and palmetto leaves peppered the custom marble Jones Alley bar and oversized imagery from the magazine served as a backdrop in the members lounge foyer. Editorial imagery looped in the screening room providing a glimpse of the good life and transporting revelers to far flung destinations.
Party-goers all departed with the inaugural issue of Grazia USA in hand, featuring high-end fashion, beauty, arts culture and travel content, packaged in a chic branded tote.
The evening was made possible by the generous support of Byte.
All event attendees were required to show proof of full vaccination upon entry.
