Two shopping events are happening tomorrow, just slightly south of our beautiful Boca Raton at Bal Harbour Shops.

The first is the grand opening of Canali Boutique. The celebration will begin at 7 p.m. and will be hosted in part by former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino. Fifteen percent of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the Dan Marino Foundation, which focuses on assisting children and young adults with autism.

Gucci will also be hosting a private cocktail celebration tomorrow to introduce and welcome the Artisan Corner. The event will run from 7 to 9 p.m.

The Artisan Corner will include custom-built workshops, where talented craftsmen from Gucci’s Florentine leather goods factory will assemble luxurious handbags on site. The tables will be complete with a sewing machine, leather stand and metal tools. You can expect to catch glimpses of mood boards and sketches too.

For this special night only, the handmade products will be available in exotic skins and exclusive colors. Hand-embossed monogramming will also be available.

This is a unique opportunity to view the craftsmanship involved with these gorgeous products.  

A portion of the night’s sales will benefit the United Way Miami-Dade.

If you aren’t able to attend this private event, the Artisan Corner display will be available for public viewing from October 9 - 11 inside the store.

Happy shopping!
