I had a private event at the Plaza Hotel last Thursday in order to present my entire Maneater ring collection to press and retailers. The centerpiece of the display was supposed to be my new Pink Elephant and Tipsy Writer ring, but it was absent for a good reason — a photoshoot related to its win in the American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Awards! So I put a nice big photo of the elephant ring on an iPad and showed the five other Maneater rings to the guests. It worked out well!
I wore one of my favorite Ossie Clark dresses.
My gorgeous friend, stylist Julie Matos, had a fun time with my hair. We’ve been spending some quality time together at Patricia Field’s store, where Julie recently picked up two braided hair pieces. They’re much darker than my hair color, so Julie took advantage of that to create an interesting pattern.
I’m pretty much up for anything when it comes to special-occasion hair.
My right-hand woman Eryn and I wore matching necklaces.
If you’re a journalist (that includes bloggers!) or a retailer who couldn’t make it to the event and you’d like to get hi-res photos of my designs or set up a private appointment, contact Eryn at info at wendybrandes dot com and she’ll take care of you.
