About this event

“The internationally recognized event that embodies the luxury lifestyle of James Bond through fashion, high-profile networking, and entertainment.”

You’re cordially invited to join KS Champagne Lifestyle, Pittsburgh Fashion Week, and the Global Bond Society for the 11th Annual James Bond Soiree, as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the James Bond films, while benefiting Animal Friends and their fight to ensure a humane and compassionate future for all animal companions.

Some have called it the best event they’ve ever attended. It all started back in 2012, with a small group of friends. The next year, we were already joining forces with 10+ cities across the globe. Last year, during our decade anniversary, the event featured champagne drone delivery onto a yacht, holographic technology, and much more. This year we not only commemorate the 60th Anniversary celebration of the James Bond film franchise but also kick off Pittsburgh Fashion Week… and we have some very special top secret surprises in store to catapult this year’s event to yet another level…

The action begins with a cocktail reception on Friday, September 16th, followed by the main event on Saturday September 17th. For our special VIP guests, Saturday will begin with a “James Bond Immersion Experience” pre-party at 6-8pm at Rivers Private Members Club, with the main event starting at 8pm. Guests also have the option of securing a guest room at the Distrikt Hotel.

As before, it’ll be an evening that embodies the luxury lifestyle of James Bond through fashion, high-profile networking, and curated entertainment. Connect with CEOs, high net worth influencers, and fantastically interesting people… all while having fun & escaping your regular life, using champagne & 007 as the catalyst.~
