We are officially less than 10 WEEKS until COUTURE: Los Angeles Bridal Market!! We can hardly contain our excitement and hope you are getting just as antsy as August 24th and 25th quickly approach. I was over at Siren Studios today meeting with one of our event planners- more to come on the incredible things they have up their sleeves in weeks to come! We walked around the entire campus, it was their first time to Siren, and as I was explaining the floor plans, I realized that I should also give you all a crash-course on Siren Studios. So get ready for Siren Studios Campus Reveal #1! Let me draw your attention to The Gallery, highlighted on the campus map below...
As I explained in the previous post, Siren Studios is comprised of four buildings. We will start our campus tour on the west side of Siren, if you are looking on from Sunset Boulevard. There will be two entrances (with registration at each) into COUTURE:L.A. The entrance to The Gallery is on your left through the west gate entrance. This chic and contemporary location offers a large open space with surround sound, restrooms, and even a fun photo booth to remember your time there- a perfect environment for displaying exquisite wedding gowns!
Insider Tip #1: Warning! We have re-named some of the buildings and areas at Siren Studios. Do not get confused if you look online and can’t find “The Gallery”, for example. Siren Studios calls this building the “Siren Lab”- but we had to put our own special Couture touch on things, of course! I will keep you in-the-know about any name changes as I continue to share campus reveals.
As wonderful as The Gallery, and every building and showroom at Siren Studios is, I bet you are itching to know just who is lucky enough to show here. COUTURE is so proud to announce that The Gallery will be fully occupied by the Face of the Show: Maggie Sottero! We are beyond excited to have Maggie Sottero represent our first West Coast show. The wonderful ladies behind Maggie Sottero were even able to come to Siren Studios for a visit earlier this month to see their fabulous space! We grabbed lunch afterwards at the W Hotel Hollywood at their delicious in-house restaurant, Delphine.
I was able to speak with Christina Blanchette, Vice President Sales and Marketing for Maggie Sottero, earlier this week and had to share her exciting words.
" We're thrilled with the opportunity to extend our partnership with the XO group at COUTURE: Los Angeles Bridal Market. The Siren Studios campus offers our western states retailers a market within affordable reach where they can experience our collections in person, then relax and enjoy the evenings taking in the best of Hollywood. In addition, we're excited to be welcoming America’s television sweetheart, Desiree Hartsock, for the launch of our new label: Desiree Hartsock with Maggie Sottero. All indicators point to a very successful market for us and a fabulous opportunity for our retailers. We look forward to seeing you as we present our Spring 2015 collections."
Make sure and visit Maggie Sottero, right through the west gate entrance off Sunset Blvd, in The Gallery- I know I will be there!
Until next time…
