Liz Fields exhibits Wedding Dresses at Bride Chic: Bergen County Brides Event

Hello friends, I hope the beginning of the holiday season is going well for everyone!

I spent my Thursday night getting to know some really special people that I wanted to tell you about.

I was invited to show our wedding dresses at the Bride Chic: Bergen County Brides Cocktail Party, which was to benefit Wish Upon A Wedding - New Jersey.  This was an exclusive, one vendor per category event, so of course I was very happy to have been asked to attend.

The Bride Chic event, presented by the Women’s Club of Ridgewood New Jersey, was held in a beautiful, historic Colonial building.  I heard a few brides enquiring about the space for themselves.

Not only was this a great opportunity to showcase our Lo-Ve-La by Liz Fields wedding dress collections, but it was great fun as well!  How could it not be with delicious food, wine tasting, and of course prizes!  Oh and did I mention that  the event was emceed by Lisa Page, DJ of 92.3 and that Megin DeCarlo, of ‘My Big Friggin Wedding’ spent the night giving tips to brides-to-be!?

My new friend Nestor Cristancho, photographed this posh event, and was kind enough to share some images of our bridal gowns  for you to enjoy!

And The Winners Are…

Hello Everyone, I am sad to say that our Fashion Origami contests have come to a close!  It has been so much fun!

First, I would like to introduce our guest judges, Carolyn and Kate.  Carolyn and Kate are sisters, and you may recall Carolyn is my 8-year-old friend who originally inspired this entire origami series.

For those who haven’t been following from the beginning here is a summary of the contests

Our Contest :  At Liz Fields we are going to make one origami garment each day and post them here. Whoever has the best collection at the end of 60 days, wins! Think of it as Project Runway meets Julie & Julia.

Your Contest:  We would love you play along with us!  Send us your own fashion origami creations and at the end of 60 days one lucky contestant will win a Liz Fields original hairpiece featured in our Fall 2010 photo shoot!  This is a great unique accessory to wear on your wedding day!

Now it is my pleasure to congratulate Anna, from Chicago, Illinois, on her origami wedding dress submission.  Great job Anna, we will be contacting you soon!

I am also pleased to announce the winner of our own Liz Fieldsorigami contest.  The winner is, Roxan!

Here is what Carolyn and Kate had to say about their decision.

“We chose this because we love how she made the wedding dress with the tiers and we loved the purple shoes with the matching bag.  Very cool!” 

A big thank you to all of our participants, I hope you had as much fun making your origami pieces as we did!  Of course thank you to Carolyn and Kate for being great guest judges!
