SRQ is thrilled to announce Adrienne Vittadini as the very first recipient of the SRQ “Women in Business” Trailblazer Award. The honor will be bestowed at the SRQ Hear Me Roar Luncheon on April 23, 2015 at The Francis.
Known for her amazing thirty-year career in fashion design, Adrienne embodies the spirit of the SRQ Women in Business program. With an entrepreneurial spirit she began her own fashion business, Adrienne Vittadini Inc., after years of design work in New York and Italy. For over three decades, Mrs. Vittadini curated a classic, stylish design aesthetic that seamlessly transitioned women from home to office to leisure with an air of smart sophistication.
Mrs. Vittadini is the recipient of countless prestigious fashion awards, including the Coty American Fashion Critics Award (1984), Albert Einstein Spirit of Achievement Award for Design and Business (1987), Metropolitan Home: The Design 100 Award (1992) and the Moore College of Art Visionary Woman Award in 2003. Currently, Mrs. Vittadini and her husband, Gianluigi, concentrate their efforts in developing luxury residential properties in Florida and the Italian Alps. She is a resident of Sarasota.
