AMFAR IN MILAN: AmfAR will hold an event in Milan for the first time, on Sept. 28 during Fashion Week. Janet Jackson will chair the event at Milan’s La Permanente space, which will include a black-tie dinner, dancing to tunes mixed by DJ Bob Sinclar, a live auction and a performance by Dita Von Teese. Other co-chairs will include Dsquared’s Dean and Dan Caten, Asia Argento, Roberto Bolle and Lapo Elkann.
“We are profoundly grateful to Janet Jackson for joining amfAR as a chair of its first event in Milan,” said Kevin Frost, amfAR’s chief executive officer.
Other partners involved in the project include BMW Italia, Vanity Fair Italia, Westin Palace Milano and chocolate-maker Lambertz.
While coming to Milan was a natural step since Italian fashion designers have been very supportive of amfAR, the organization has in the past held a total of six events in Venice and Rome, which raised $5 million.
