Five years in the making, “Courting Kings” the book by men’s accessories designer Remo Tulliani was launched recently at Mastro’s Steakhouse (1285 Avenue of the Americas) to a select group of fashion, media, friends and associates of the author – including Steve Smith, Jimmy Gabriel, Jim Farrell, Robert Stock, Jason Jones, Cliff Lelonek, Jason Dasal, and Len Pesko of Modern Pulse who gave the introductory speech. Mr. Tulliani, who has been producing Italian made belts, wallets, along with socks and sunglasses, was moved to compose this book of essays by his close friendships and interactions with some successful personalities. In the book, he collects the life stories of these “kings” and recounts their personal journeys from challenges to triumphs, highlighting life lessons learned, and along the way gives insights on several industries such as merchandising and sports broadcasting. The book itself is a tribute to both these men and Mr. Tulliani’s appreciation of quality – a leather-bound, hefty 456-page tome in a linen case and handsomely embossed with a crown icon. The author spoke of his beginnings in the fashion industry and the hopes he had this book would serve as an inspiration not only to those who are just starting out on their careers but also to everyone else who reach crossroads. The hardcover book retails $200 via Tulliani Productions.
