Program Description

Both celebrated and controversial throughout history, luxury goods have simultaneously acted as personal keepsakes, cultural artifacts collected by museums and symbols of privilege. Often examples of the pinnacle of skill and craftsmanship, these items have supported the development of new objects and techniques, but also raise questions of society's values regarding success, wealth, leadership and progress.

This half-day program gathers academics and entrepreneurs to discuss and debate the concept of luxury in contemporary society.

Speakers include: Misha Pinkhasov, Co-Author, Real Luxury: How Luxury Brands Can Create Value for the Long Term; Elizabeth Paton, US Fashion and Luxury Correspondent, Financial Times; Enrico Libani, CEO of Cesare Attolini NY; Alberto Milani, CEO, Buccellati Inc; Elvira di Bona, Fellow, Italian Academy, Columbia University; Rachna Joshi Nair, Co-Author, Real Luxury: How Luxury Brands Can Create Value for the Long Term; Dr. Thomaï Serdari, Adjunct Associate Professor of Marketing, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University.
