Finding the Perfect Fit…
Posted on June 18 2012
We were looking for a host for our event and through the introduction of NYC Invitations we met Cortney Renee.
She was the perfect host for our event for a multitude of reasons but mainly because of her experience as a philanthropic brand ambassador, spokesmodel, and professional model. Her great look and passion for high impact fashion events was an instant fit!
When it came time for us to select a Jia Collection dress for her to wear, we knew we needed something bold, sophisticated and flattering. The Bettina dress was the perfect pick!
It looked phenomenal on her (and all the party guests wouldn’t let her forget it). It’s a great dress for a woman with full, feminine curves, just like Cortney
My long-term partnership and relationship with NYC Invitations opened the door for me to learn about the Jia Collection and I wanted to be a part of making preview a huge success. And I know the importance of having a skilled, charismatic host for any event one expects a large crowd to enjoy.
If there is a message to share during the evening it is best to give an eloquent, expert voice to bring life to that message both on-stage and in real moments.
I love the fact that the Jia Collection identifies with women who are well-traveled, adventurous, and welcome change in life like the bright colors of the line!
The dress I wore was a gorgeous, sea foam green and it definitely hugged the curves which is what I am known for in the modeling world. Every moment of the evening I had a guest complimenting my dress and wanting pictures with me! It was all the dress, most definitely. Every woman needs that special dress to make her stand out in a crowd and the Jia Collection is the perfect candidate for stand out moments, while maintaining comfort, flexibility and versatility.
I can’t wait to wear the dress on the reversible side, a lovely summer white! I know it will stop the show again where ever I choose to go!
Thanks for my lovely dress, Jia Collection! I can’t wait to do more with you in the fashion space!
