Cattivo Ragazzo Clients Enjoy Bespoke Birthday Party [PHOTOS]

When a long-time friend and associate Dino Minichiello began planning his 50th birthday party, it is doubtful that he anticipated the RSVP list would grow into the 10-page list I found myself juggling at the door of The Portside on Friday night. As a fixture in Vancouver’s fashion scene, Dino and his latest venture Cattivo Ragazzo, have seen the demand for the company’s custom suits gaining momentum with 65 ordered in December alone.

Kent Schmor of KS Champagne Parties Global put together a fantastic event with the assistance of many of Dino’s friends and associates. I offered up my time to provide a welcome to guests, Vanessa Dang of TwoFold&Co. managed the many sponsors and talent, and Kevin Sung of Dea Fortuna kept the bubbles flowing and the Clase Azul tequila close-at-hand. Gift bags and contents were generously donated by Celebrity Laser and Skin Care and Tabori Skin Studio.
