Man Power 2024: Anthony J. Vecchione

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe 

Anthony J. Vecchione started in the textile fashion industry more than 30 years ago, creating dynamic partnerships between Italy’s finest mills and fashion’s most elite design houses. 

Vecchione realized the fashion industry was changing. In November 2010, an idea was born about how to meet the lifestyle needs of the jet-setting woman. 

“Chiara Boni La Petite Robe created the concept of a dress that was not only figure-transforming, but exuded seasonless elegance. We contemplated how we could make a product that is packable, washable, and sustainable. We were the first European house to win the prestigious European award for sustainability,” he explains. “One dress grew into a full lifestyle collection of flattering, sexy, and polished garments—all made in Italy. This quickly resulted in a cult following of fashionistas, socialites, and professional women.” 

Vecchione also has an immense calling for charitable causes including breast cancer, juvenile diabetes, and animal rescue. Scott Cohen, his husband of 30 years, shares his passion for philanthropy and his own bustling residential real estate career. A camaraderie of women covet Vecchione’s garments, flocking to fundraising events and galas to support causes near and dear to Vecchione and Cohen. 

“I am a firm believer that it is our responsibility to give back to this world,” he explains. “I love my community here in Boca Raton and am proud to dress the ladies who are as like-minded in fashion as they are in philanthropy. From the Go Pink Luncheon to Big Dog Ranch, giving back never looked and felt so fabulous.”
