13 October 2008

Premium Beer Brings Classic Italian Style To Chic Event

LOS ANGELES (October 13, 2008) – Peroni Nastro Azzurro, the premium Italian lager, today announced it will continue its sponsorship of LA Fashion Week through 2009. As the official beer of LA Fashion Week, Peroni will be available backstage at many shows and at parties and social events throughout the week.

“When you think of places that exude style and fashion, you have to think of Italy and Los Angeles,” said Evan Cohen, Marketing Director, Peroni. “In that same spirit, we’re excited to provide Peroni, which embodies the very essence of Italian style, to the fashionistas who will descend on LA this week.”

First introduced in the 1960s in Rome, and imported to the United States since early 2005, Peroni Nastro Azzurro is one of the best known Birra Peroni brands and is the leading premium beer in Italy. Its clean taste and clarity appeals to urban, upscale consumers who want a refreshing, drinkable beer they can enjoy throughout the night.

Los Angeles Fashion Week runs from October 12 – 16 at Smashbox Studios.
