Counting My Blessings
I head this week to New York City for an event that I could only have dreamt about not too long ago. I've been invited by Brizo, the faucet company, to participate in their New York Fashion Week Event.
For the past two years, Brizo has invited a select group of design professionals and writers to New York City during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to learn first-hand how it creates household fashion. Brizo elevates everyday bathroom accessories to distinctive and high-fashion articles, and to that end, it has paired with renowned fashion designer Jason Wu. Wu designs fashion for Brizo's advertisements, installations for its trade shows, and since September 2011, a faucet and accessory line for its brand. In return, Brizo is the primary sponsor of Wu's Fall and Spring Fashion Shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. For the New York Fashion Week Event, in addition to meeting with Brizo's product design and branding teams, I will attend the debut of Wu's Spring 2013 Collection and meet him at Brizo's exclusive after-party.
A year ago I was gearing up for the re-design of the Laurie Gorelick Interiors website and the launch of this blog. Since then, I have won a trip to High Point Market Week, been recognized by House Beautiful magazine in its Blogfest contest, been selected to design a room for the 2012 Junior League of Boston Show House, and now this. I feel honored and blessed.
Reading about Jason Wu and Brizo, I am struck by their commitment to quality and craftsmanship. About Jason, his website says: "Jason has always been driven by a curiosity to learn about construction, workmanship and perfecting every detail of his designs." To describe the Fashion/Faucet Story, Brizo's site says: "[H]igh-style can be achieved at home and on the red carpet." I embrace these same standards. Thank you, Brizo, for honoring me by selecting me to attend this amazing event.
