The theme of our party was Little Black Dress, and, according to that, all guests were asked to put on their own "LBD" and join the celebration. As famous LBD in the 21st century can allow itself broaden the borders and become simply a creative statement, our guests beat the record and we got the best of the best on that night!
When having great people, it is a challenge to be great hosts, but we tried and did our best. The night was spiced up with Fashion Trivias, a PR (aka PatternReview.com) contest, LBD Runway, music and Friday night refreshments.
Fashion Trivias were such fun; it turned out that fashion history was like 2+2 for our guests, but guessing the fiber content of the fabric with their eyes closed was not the easiest one, however, they truly enjoyed it.
It is the fact that all our guests are experienced sewers, besides that they are outstandingly talented. And that's why we had a special PR contest for them. Ten people made up two teams: "Velvet" and "Remnants". Having a couple of small fabric stashes, 40 pins and 15 minutes, they had to create "The Year 2020 Look" Their spontaneous creativity and unprecedented team work impressed us. The rest of audience compared the looks and chose the winning team - "Remnants". The winners were rewarded with beautiful prizes: Chanel Brocade and New York Print Viscose Knit.
The party reached its apex, when our guests participated in a special Runway, demonstrating their self-made LBDs. We wish Mlle Coco could see it! Oh, that was superb, and you do not expect anything else when dresses are fantastic! After the secret voting, three winners stepped up on the pedestal: Cathy (Peter Lappin's cousin) - Winner #1, Kyle - Winner #2, and Mary - Winner #3
After so much laugh and fun the evening smoothly entered the part of PR Birthday Cake cutting and Champagne glasses clinking. The guests chatted for a short while more and, finding it to be a hard decision, had to leave... but to return again!
We want to thank everyone who came to join the celebration! Those who could not make it this time, we felt your strong desire to be with us! We certainly will get together again!
