After starting out with just $400 and a small catering company, Cowie has become one of the most recognized and in-demand designers in events. As C.E.O. and C.O.O. of Colin Cowie Lifestyle in New York, he oversees three facets of its events arm: entry-level event production, signature services with his personal involvement, and haute couture multimillion-dollar events, which all add up to 40 to 60 events a year. Plus, he recently launched F.O.O.D. Inc., a high-end catering and hospitality company.
On his design philosophy: “My design always starts with the DNA of a particular product, a venue, or a couple, then I take you on a journey by playing to the senses, by adding to what you smell, touch, taste, see, and hear.”
