Gucci in DC: US Air loses $50,000 worth of luggage

CLICK TO SEE STORY ON WUSA9 TV

The heir to the GUCCI dynasty was in DC during his first visit to the US. 83 year old Giorgio Gucci spoke on Capitol Hill on the issue of the black market. He urged leaders to pass stronger counterfeit laws and follow through with enforcement. An unfortunate fashion note… Gucci addressed the crowd in an emergency buy… an untailored, slightly too big Jos. A Bank suit. The designer scrambled to find something to wear after US Airways lost $50,000 worth of his luggage! Gucci himself did not seem rattled. I was impressed with his graciousness.

Highlights from the forum included an outstanding performance by opera sensation Cristina Fontinelli who sang the National Anthem. Rep. Diane E. Watson was honored as well for her push to protect designers and fashion commerce. I was honored to emcee the talk that included great insight from expert panelists Jean Bonilla, Caroyl Miller and Steve Hilson. The Greater Washington Chamber of Commerce and Emperor Brands hosted the forum.

Check out my interview with him about what he thought about his first visit to the Nation’s Capitol.  I’ll be airing more video on the WUSA9 Morning Show Friday. Tune in.

Bruce caught up with John Riggins and Lavar Arrington… as well as some locals  on the heels of hearing the news. I personally think this is a power move and suspect McNabb will probably be her for about two years. Those who criticize the fact he’s 34… 34?!?  people… I say take a look at Favre and Kurt Warner. Mcnabb can roll out of bed and throw a decent game, the man is good, you can’t debate it. As for our friend Jason Campbell.. haven’t heard from him yet but suspect that it’s a sensitive issue. There’s one thing I know about Jason though and it’s he’s a good hearted person that will probablly look at this as an opportunity to grow even more. .
