FLORENCE, Italy - Session highlights from the second day of the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference April 23 included Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, Ferragamo's Leonardo Ferragamo and Laudomia Pucci of Emilio Pucci.

Hosted by Condé Nast International, in partnership with Swarovski and Place Vendome, and lead by Vogue International editor Suzy Menkes, the conference has brought together various speakers from across verticals to discuss the issues facing the industry and how the concept of luxury is evolving (see story).

On the night of April 22, attendees gathered at the Palazzo Crosini for a cocktail party hosted by Condé Nast International and Place Vendôme Qatar party. The party included drinks mixed by Diageo's Reserve portfolio of luxury spirits, a portrait studio where guests posed for glamour shots and was furnished by Missoni Home.

After the conclusion of the conference agenda April 23, attendees were invited to the historic home of Emilio Pucci where the brand displays pieces from its archives. Passed plates and Champagne were served as a way thank all in attendance.

Below are images from the Place Vendôme Qatar party, the final day of the conference and the send off held at Emilio Pucci's Florentine home:
