Dennis Basso Freestyle – The Apres Fashion Event of Christmas Holidays in Aspen

Once again, the Winter fundraiser for the Aspen Art Museum, known as the Basso Freestyle delivered the one-two punch to the already well-established championship season known as the holidays in Aspen, Colorado!  A trip to the Emmys in Hollywood for 28K,  A Taste of Tuscany…in Tuscany! …..for 25K and my favorite, an excursion to Milan Fashion Week for 55K!  Of course, the piece de la resistance was the last lot, and far from least….an original full length sable coat, designed by the maestro, himself, Dennis Basso, which he had to produce two of…since one bidder challenged another to buy one if he did.  Voila….another $200k for the Art Museum, which is building a new home right in the center of town.  The fashion show followed…with Basso’s collection of glamorous, lux-y furs and gowns strutting

down the ice-white runway…to take our breaths away.  One of those creations could certainly keep me warm all winter long….. Bet you wish you were here….come next year!  Happy Holidays!  xo gio
