The new cultural hub transformed an entire Beverly Hills city block, with the historic 1934 Beverly Hills Post Office and new Goldsmith Theater integral parts of the transformation. And with Ferragamo's deep-rooted ties to Los Angeles — the iconic shoe designer opened his first shop in Hollywood almost 100 years ago — and a worldwide commitment to the arts, it made perfect sense to sponsor the inaugural gala.
The gala is scheduled for mid-October, but the festivities have already started.
