Today I met my friends Teresa and Charlotte at the IDC (International Design Center).We attended the Kravet "How to Get Published" seminar presented by Carolyn Sollis, former Style Director of House & Garden magazine, Executive Editor of House Beautiful. It was such a great presentation. Carolyn provided so many tips for Designers from proper marketing ideas to providing a cohesive image as a successful Designer. She explained the importance of "Brand Identity". Studio 6XI definitely seconds that motion! She also provided tips for submitting projects to different design publications. After the presentation Kravet provided a delicious lunch in their fabulous showroom. It consisted of a yummy shrimp scampi, Mediterranean chicken, rice pilaf, bruschetta topped with cheese and diced tomatoes, fresh vegetable platter and fruit kabobs. Finished off with a fresh mimosa. Mmm it was delish! We had a chance to look at the gorgeous fabrics in the showroom and mingle with other local designers. Kravet even provided us with these great bags filled with goodies. Kravet knows marketing! It was a such a lovely afternoon.
