Gucci and Ai Tominaga held a charity fashion show with Gucci garments from the Fall/Winter 2011/2012 season in Milan. The event opened with a model wearing the same dress worn by Jennifer Lopez at the 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala. Top model Ai Tominaga helped put the event together with Gucci because she wanted to help Japan heal after the devastating earthquake.
Ai Tominaga was also on hand to share champagne with the guests in a toast to Japan. Tominaga herself made an appearance in the show, walking in a flowing yellow gown with feathers and a bow at the collar.
"Gucci and I had the rare chance to present one of the best fashion shows to the Japanese people and to show them how great fashion is...and that fashion can be a dream" Tominaga said.
