"… I love London. For me London is the leading capital of style and I couldn’t think of a better place to have a party to mark my newest store, than in a city that has embraced my fashions and my sense of style. London has always been so welcoming to me and this celebration is a thank you to my closest friends and family of the house.” said Roberto Cavalli.
