After a decade in the making, the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts (The Wallis) officially opened its doors to the public in October 2013. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the new state-of-the-art venue, designed by Zoltan Pali, transforms the iconic 1933 Beverly Hills Post Office into a vibrant new cultural destination.

The opening of the Wallis Center also brings back Salvatore Ferragamo to its Hollywood’s roots, as the fashion brand sponsors a glamorous Inaugural Gala hosted by renowned philanthropist Wallis Annenberg and co-chair Jamie Tisch. The unforgettable evening is completed with a runway show of Ferragamo’s creative director, Massimiliamo Giornetti, Spring 2014 Collection and the opening of a L.A. pop-up shop showcasing special pieces created just for Los Angeles.

Ferragamo turned to UNIT9 with the request to make the star studded gala and the LA pop-up store accessible to all Americans. And in response, we created Hollywood Ferragamo – a beautifully crafted HTML5 microsite, inviting users to shop the limited collection and peek behind the velvet ropes of the dazzling event. Developed using Ajax technology, the Ferragamo’s microsite is fully optimised both for Desktop and mobile devices, ensuring that users get the full experience across all their devices.

In a full screen gallery dedicated to the Inaugural Gala, renowned photographer Oliver Zahm has captured all the glitz, glamour and stardom of the event, leaving you with the feeling you’ve just had champagne with Charlize Theron and tasted the hors d’eouvres by Wolfgang Puck.
