‘Tis the season to give thanks – and here at Tony Brewer and Co., we’ve got plenty to be thankful for! As we prepare to don pashminas and head out for holiday festivities, we thought it only fitting that we take a moment to countdown the things we are most thankful for. What will be No.1? There’s only one way to find out! Enjoy!
He’s legendary, a historic Mongolian conqueror named by Time as “one of the most important people
of the last millennium” and among the top 25 political icons “whose legacies have stood the test of time.”Indeed, Genghis Khan is one of the most iconic figures in world history – the perfect subject for a vast display at the Fernbank Museum of Natural Histor. But how in the world does one build a gala around an ancient figure who’s primary claim to fame is killing his enemies?
This was the very conflict we found ourselves facing here at Tony Brewer and Co. recently as The Fernbank approached us to give the “Tony Touch” to their Timeless Affair, an annual black-tie gala. This year’s Oct. 6 event will feature a private viewing of Genghis Khan, a special exhibition showcasing the largest collection of rare 13th century Mongolian artifacts ever assembled.
And that brings us back to the original challenge – how to turn war into beauty!
