Interior Design Reunion: Brizo Faucets, Fashion, Philanthropy and fun in Memphis, TN

I'm off to Memphis, Tennessee today

The reunion...
Fashion Designer Jason Wu
 You may remember in 2010 I was sponsored by faucet brand, 
Brizo to attend NY Fashion Week 
and take in the gorgeous frocks designed by Jason Wu.

What is all the hoopla about, you ask?  
The skinny:  
Interior design brand Brizo (think state of the art faucets) has been fashion designer Jason Wu's sponsor since 2006.  Each year Brizo hand-picks 19 influential design bloggers for an inspiring and productive week in NYC during Fashion Week.  That is how the Blogger 19 group was born.  Cut, to a few years later and there are 120ish of us who are bonded on our shared wonderful experience with Brizo.  Now, to top it off Brizo has invited our entire group to a sponsored trip to their headquarters in Memphis, TN. 

Jason Wu now designs faucets 
for Brizo

My favorites 
from Jason Wu's 
Resort 2014

His newest collection is graphic, elegant, simple but very textural.  
Love those damn shoes, and the use of Pantone color of the year Emerald with black, this soothing beige and all the white.  It just really works for me -- all of it!  While being so very fashion forward and high style, these designs are meant to wwar in real life for real people!   

While in Memphis our group will take part in a philanthropic program and partnership between Brizo and St. Jude's Children Hospital called St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.  The program was created to build  homes around the country using donated materials and products (of course Brizo faucets and wares for the kitchen and bath too).  The Giveaway will offer the opportunity to win a new home.  All proceeds raised will go towards St. Jude's research and treatment to help children.  

"Brizo believes the power of dreams is limitless. 
They are supporting St. Jude to help realize the biggest dream of all: 
curing childhood cancer.  
Since becoming the first National Sponsor of the St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway in 2010, Brizo has participated in 68 home giveaways, helping St. Jude raise nearly $61 million - one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Judes nationwide."

See all the love here? 
Stay tuned for updates and more information on this program, and our trip.  Brizo has lots of creativity on their side with an amazing production and marketing team who just keep raising that bar higher and higher for other design brands.   
Thank you Brizo!
We know it's gonna be a wonderful experience.  
Happy Nesting XO
