The August issue of Fashion Wrap Up (due August 7?) features the amazing summer line of TAVIK Swimwear. Christy Cripe Pastore, editor of Fashion Wrap Up, chose MadrinDesigns to style the jewelry looks with each swimsuit.

The models included Taylor Holden, Amanda Katherine, Tanah Marie Combs, Jennifer Scherer, and Amy Beers. Photos were taken by Michael Trace. Makeup was provided by Leslie Bardonner. Hair styling was provided by Allure Salon.

The whole team was a pleasure to work with! We can't wait to see the spread in August's issue!!

Social Media 101

Went to a breakfast seminar this morning about using Social Media in your business...very informative for those that were new to the whole thing...made me think about my own social media strategies.

What else would you like to see on MadrinDesigns FB, blog, or Twitter pages? More jewelry photos? More exclusive coupons and sales? Tell me what you think!

Just leave a comment here on the blog or on my other sites, and I'll try to put those ideas to work. After all, I would be nowhere without my fabulous friends and loyal customers!

And please contact Rocky Walls (Twelve Stars Media) or Greg Cross (Cross Creative) for more info on what they do and your own Social Media presence!

Fashion Wrap Up Launch Party 7/1/10

I just realized today that I hadn't posted anything to the blog about the recent Red Carpet Party I attended. Hosted by the NEW online magazine, Fashion Wrap Up, the event was fantastic. MadrinDesigns was there as a vendor of course, but that didn't stop us from meeting an amazing group of people and seeing the incredible fashions provided by Gaby Couture and N. Rue.

It was a spectacular night! I met a gorgeous and super-talented hair designer, owner of Salon 118 in Fishers, Ms. Jessica Cripps! And the fab makeup artist, Ms. Stacey Mayo, owner of Stacey Mayo and Co. I saw both again yesterday, while getting some high and lowlights from Jessica and a super-cute cut!

I can't forget to mention Christy Cripe Pastore and Crystal Serowka of Fashion Wrap Up for putting together such an amazing fete.

I've included some photos taken by others, since I wasn't able to leave my spot during the night and take any of my own! Enjoy!
