Last night on Saturday April 13th 2013 was the debut of Lacey Couture Jewelry at Exagere’ Art Gallery in New Orleans. Among the many in attendance at this upscale networking exhibit was Kitty Kennedy, CEO of Imperial Dynasty, a good friend of the creator & designer of Lacey Couture, Mrs. Lori Tantawi.
Lacey Couture is a statement piece couture jewelry collection that can only be described as bold, daring, & for the woman who commands attention when entering the room. Each piece is hand-made by Lori herself & are all one of a kind. These are not dime store trinkets, my friend! They range from $75 & go upwards of $1000. Ten models showcased this unique jewerly collection of chunky neclaces, chokers, earrings, bracelets, head pieces & shoulder accents. They wore skintight black catsuits, drawing the eyes of the onlookers directly to the jewels.
Even though Lacey Couture Jewelry was the highlight of the evening, it was not the only thing that took place at the event. There was an art exhibit & a few new pieces introduced into the gallery. There were a number of performances by singers of jazz, R&B, opera, & rap. There was also a ballet dancer that gave a stunning performance that mezmerized everyone in the building. People from many sides of the entertainment business were present & of course, Kitty made many new connections while supporting Lori’s accomplishment.
Lori Tantawi is a couture jewelry designer, accomplished model, & business woman. She posesses a Bachelor’s degree from the US Military Academy & will be graduating with her Master’s in 4 more months (Aug 2013) from Full Sail University.
