Many customers have crossed the finish line but only one of them has held the honor of being the “one millionth client of 2013.” She is 32-year-old Antonella from Rome, and she could not believe how lucky she was!

After graduating in International Finance and specializing in Risk Management this past September, Antonella next heads to Nigeria to work for the Central Bank where she will take over an implementation project in the Nigerian financial sector.

During her free time, yoox.com’s one millionth client loves to travel and scuba dive—passions which have taken her to some of the most beautiful beaches around the world. While her dream is to discover Australia, for now she is busy packing her bags for her summer vacation travelling around California. Her next purchase on yoox.com will definitely be an outfit for the holiday!

When yoox.com contacted me to invite me to their 13th birthday party I thought it was one of my girlfriends playing a prank on me as so many of them share my passion for yoox.com,” she said.

The fateful purchase that resulted in Antonella’s invitation to the exclusive birthday party was a gift for her boyfriend Pietro, whom she brought with her to the party.

Although we’ve been dating for the last eight years I’m always scared not to get his gifts right! I never have enough time to go shopping and in this heat it would have been a nightmare so I started browsing on my tablet when I thought of yoox.com. I immediately found what I was looking for: A beautiful briefcase by Borsalino. Some weeks ago he was telling me he really wanted one, so I was just waiting for the perfect occasion. On June 29th it will be his name-day, so I had quite a lot of time. I wasn’t expecting the order to arrive the next day! I have to say I’m very pleased with how reliable the website was. I’m in love with fashion and was pleasantly surprised by yoox.com’s enormous selection of products both for men and for women. I use the categories on the left hand side of the item pages which allow you to refine your search and browse the top designers featured on the website so the site becomes really user-friendly and a true multi brand luxury experience. Not to mention how quickly my order was dispatched….after it arrived I couldn’t resist and ended up giving it to him way before his party!” Antonella explained.

At the 13th birthday party this past weekend, which was held inside Ravenna’s public gardens, Antonella, who was all dressed up to celebrate, did not hide her surprise.

It’s just like being on the set of one of Fellini’s films. The orchestra, the balera and everyone dressed up like we’re in the ‘50s! I’m really happy to have the opportunity to participate in this beautiful, exclusive party and it’s always a pleasure to wear a special dress!” she exclaimed.

While the voice of Fellini’s (almost) full moon lead us through the evening, Antonella was swept off her feet by the ballroom dancing. When she spoke to us about her shopping experience her face lit up, her excitement becoming contagious and while Pietro looks at her with loving eyes, she declares I LOVE YOOX!
