Goodie Bag Delights from Nichole Moranda, Lolablue, Laura Loving and Elizabeth Anyaa
Up and coming artists make a goodie bag great!
This year while preparing goodie bags for the editor's event for The Couture Show, the most elite jewelry show held during Las Vegas Jewelry Market Week, we decided to find wonderful new artists to bring a fresh approach to our gift bags. Held on the 60th floor of The Tower Suites in The Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, the bags themselves were rather "green", and well received. Not only did we have a Couture water canteen and Couture eye gel masks, but we included cards from Charlotte born, but New York City living artist Laura Loving, beautiful handmade fabric scarves from the gem of Sierra Leone by way of Dallas - Elizabeth Anyaa, and two young business entrepreneurs from Florida, ceramicists Nichole Moranda, known for her ceramic plumeria flower, grape leaf and bead jewelry, as well as her murals, watercolors and sculptures - and Jamie Lovern of Lolablue and her natural beauty products. The pairing of these two woman made for the most wonderful packaging of a ceramic plumeria flower diffuser, handmade and fired, which the Lolablue natural essential oils are dropped onto, and delicious (and needed) lip balm. Elizabeth Anyaa specifically spent weeks creating the fabrics just for this event - all while preparing for her first entree into Neiman Marcus, and Laura generously shared her colorful cards, beautifully wrapped up and tied with a bow.
The Couture Show was a great success, and it's the editors reporting on what's trending, and what they liked best, that helps to get the word out. Giving these folks a little respite in The Tower Suites with food and libation - manicures and massages is just the shows way of saying Thank You. The beautiful gifts made possible by the lovely ladies mentioned above is simply the icing on the cake! Thanks gals!
