In celebration of Gucci’s 90th anniversary, the House recently hosted a private cocktail party at its San Francisco store. The exclusive Artisan Corner event brought the craftsmanship of Gucci’s Florentine leather goods factory directly to its clientele, allowing guests to view skilled artisans assembling some of the brands most iconic handbags.

As Gucci was a key sponsor of the 21POP installation at SF20, they donated a percentage of proceeds from the evening’s event to SFMOMA, furthering their longstanding commitment to preservation of the arts.
The party also honored SFMOMA’S SF20 Honorary Committee and co chairs, including Gina and Stuart Peterson, Katie Paige, Stanlee Gatti, Allison Speer, Elaine McKeon, and Douglas Durkin.
