Launch Party, more pics

All my girls.  Plus the bottom picture is of the ice sculpture with my name on it.  Which is seriously cool in case you’ve never had your own personal ice sculpture before.  But you can’t see it well.  Better pics later.

A fun day all around with the silliest brides you ever met.  Keep those dresses off the ground girls!

Middle-ish row, left to right:  Harmony Walton of The Bridal Bar:   a much larger & more user friendly version on my own personal stud muffin (I love this picture!):   my besty Karen Burniston, an ubber cool designer in her own right, who has such fabulous taste she showed up dressed just like me.

A fabulous time was had by all.  If you weren’t there, you can catch us on the road in the coming months.  Deets to come.  Or you can catch the runway show on my episode of Get Married, airing in the early fall.

Friday I had a photo shoot with the re-make of the Josephine gown.  This was just a quick photo shoot to get the new pictures up on the website before the save the date cards go out for the launch party, but I’m very pleased.  This is also your indroduction to Christina, my new spokesmodel.  She’s so beautiful & really represents my customer perfectly.   And, yes, the necklace is part of my new collection!

 

Josephine & 2 other gowns will be in The Little White Dress Shop www.lwdbridal.com by the end of the month, and the remaining 5 debut collection gowns will be there by the end of February.  There will also be 8 veils and 4 necklaces as well. 

Please contact Margo Trueblood, my Director of Sales & Marketing at 719.650.8502 or margo@alisabenay.com for information about how to find our gowns in a salon near you or information about attending out launch party March 14 & 15.

Photo Shoot

I had the wonderful opportunity this weekend to work with the Denver Editorial Modeling Meetup that is hosted by the fabulous & multi-hatted Karen Aguirre of Xposure Online Model Management

Here’s a video:

Pretty awesome, huh? It was a fun event, but my gowns are toast. Live & learn. Airport hangers are perhaps not the place to have models walking about in silk. Next time I’ll take the cocktail skirts and leave the full length gowns at home. Where are said cocktail skirts, you ask? Keep your britches on, they’re coming!

Speaking of britches, did you notice the girls wearing the corsets with jeans?  I told you that you could do that!  Corsets are fun, girls.  If you can’t invest in the whole gown, just get the corset.  It doesn’t have to be for your wedding.  Get it for the honeymoon, the bachelorette party, some really hot date you’ve got up your sleeve for him…. the possibilities are endless. 🙂

All systems go

I just nailed down everything for the photo shoot for this coming Monday.  Photographer, model, hair/make-up artist, intern, & local.  We’re looking into a second model at the last minute.  My model for the day is Ashley, but she’s got a time crunch.  You would think it won’t take longer than 3 hours to shoot 4 gowns, but I’m looking to hedge my bets & get a 2nd model.   For both moving through the gowns quicker (or is it “more quickly”?) & also in case we need to do some additional detail shots after Ashley needs to leave.  I’ve put some feelers out, we’ll see what turns up.

Woohoo.  I’m in business.
