The Swiss luxury leather goods house Bally opened its new store in D.C.’s fashion hub Tysons Galleria with an exclusive opening cocktail party on September 29th. The opening was hosted in conjunction with Esquire Magazine and was attended by Swiss Ambassador to the United States, H. E. Manuel Sager, and his wife.

The evening benefitted FAIR Fund, an organization committed to preventing human trafficking of youth, promoting community empowerment and building community leadership. Mrs. Sager chose the Washington-based charity to receive ten percent of the night’s proceeds. The evening featured live jazz music and giveaways from Bally’s 160th Anniversary Collection.

Bally prides itself on excellence in craftsmanship and its timeless design. The complete women’s and men’s Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 are available at the new local store and include ready-to-wear shoes, bags and leather accessories.
