Producing close to 100 private and consumer events a year, Teril Turner has been the director of marketing for Henri Bendel since 1995. Turner is in the midst of finalizing plans for the launch of Elle Accessories' spring issue, in addition to preparing for an upcoming event with the Whitney Museum.
Florist: “Meredith Perez and her team at Belle Fleur are a pleasure to work with, and their taste level aligns perfectly with our audience. For Mother's Day last year, since Belle Fleur was founded by a mother-daughter duo, they were a natural partnership for us to create a pop-up shop within the store. They offered a variety of floral bouquets to our customers complete with complimentary local delivery.”
Caterer: “The team at Match Catering is always creative and enthusiastic. Regardless of the theme or occasion, they bring great ideas to the table that consistently delight and tempt our guests. For a special event we did in honor of the Nars Cosmetics photography retrospective, Match created Lucite serving trays embedded with images from previous Nars ad campaigns, which matched several of the photos on exhibit.”
Rentals: ”Just Linens/TriServe Party Rentals is a reliable event partner. We count on them to be there when we need them, and to accommodate unusual or inevitable last-minute requests.”
Venue: ”We held a Fashion Week celebration at the HighLine Ballroom last season called the Brown and White Ball to celebrate the 100th birthday of our signature stripe. It's a large space in a fabulous neighborhood that's very conducive to all kinds of events, from cocktail parties to concerts. It's also a neutral space that really allows you to emphasize your own decor, which in our case was a lot of brown and white stripes!”
Printing: “The A. Marcus Group produces wonderful invitations that consistently meet our high standards—and often crazy deadlines. They go the extra mile to suggest a special paper or unique printing technique to help enhance our creative design.”
Photographer: “Really, it's just not a party without Patrick McMullan and his team. They get the best shots every time.”
