After two years of watching the beautiful minds of Kizmet build an archetype for a transformative retail experience, Faena Bazaar previewed its initial POV during Art Basel 2016. It was a magical convergence of art, fashion and delicious beverages from three fantastic partners with daily cultural experiences, conversations, signings and performances. Looking forward to what will unfold in 2017 and beyond!
And as a bonus, the press loved it too!
Earlier this year, we launched our third annual content program for Mandarin Oriental, New York - #MyViewYork. This program partnered the luxury property with an Instagram photographer, who set out on a journey throughout NYC each month throughout 2015 capturing images of the most iconic, unexpected, spectacular and awe-inspiring views.
Nearly 12 months later, the popularity of this program hit unexpected peaks and the determination to democratize this campaign for consumers was born.
As of today, consumers can share their very own #MyViewYork on Instagram and as a result, could score a night stay plus a fantastic spa and culinary experience at New York's leading luxury property. Pretty sweet.
As a lover of the taco, it is fantastic to see Crain's and other publications recognizing the rise of quality, homemade tortillas. It was great to work with the editor on ensuring that client Otto's Tacos was prominent within the piece on this culinary trend.
Favorite taco at Otto's: shrimp or mushroom. Highly recommend all (+ an order of masa fries - kind of like a tortilla and a french fry having a baby).
Developing strategic partnerships is even more rewarding when you know that the implementation of these partnerships will be in an elevated, creative environment that will not only foster them, but nurture them into fruition in a way that will not only achieve the partner's objectives, but exceed them every time...
As we inch closer to the opening of the Faena District this fall, reading these little snippets of excitement from the press services as a public validation of what we are lucky enough to experience working on the project every single day.
Amazing Airline + Luxury Hotel Culinary Program = Partnership made in delicious heaven. How fun to see the beautifully elegant in-flight menu crafted by Mandarin Oriental, New York for Cathay Pacific come to life visually. Throughout February, first class passengers on Cathay Pacific have been treated to these haute comfort foods (3 course meal!) during their travels. Traveling in style goes to a whole new level.
