Mayesh Gives Back This Holiday Season

Web

In the spirit of the holiday season and in the spirit of Mayesh, several branches adopted a family or hosted a toy drive to spread holiday love. It makes me so happy to be a part of a company that focuses heavily on giving back. Hearing the stories of these families told by our Mayesh team members was not only moving but also emotionally overwhelming. Here are a few highlights of the Mayesh team spreading holiday cheer. #mayeshgivesback

Art In Full Bloom: Disco Celebration of Color

ainfb_blog

This was the 5th annual Art in Full Bloom and I have to say, it was the best one yet! Early on in the planning stages we settled on the theme of “Disco Celebration of Color” and as a super fan of disco, I was elated! With the help of Jim McCoy we were able to create an evening of full of dancing, socializing, networking, art and live entertainment! It was kind of like Mayesh’s version of Studio 54 and what better place than Vegas, baby!

This year we partnered with The Center, a community-based organization that helps furthering the human rights and overall well being of the LGBTQ community in South Las Vegas. This partnership was a perfect fit! Not only do we fully support their cause but the staff and crew were so amazing and easy to work with – everything came together seamlessly! Together we really pulled off a spectacular event.

Of course it would not be an Art in Full Bloom event without our favorite ladies Norma and Doris! They never seem to disappoint and bring so much life to the party. As usual their performance was crowd pleaser and their all night mingling makes for some fun and interesting conversation. They weren’t the only ones with a stellar performance, though. We also had a Diana Ross impersonator that was off the charts! The DJ was spinning disco classics all night long and everyone was shakin’ their groove thing! Our Floral Fantasy winner also designed an amazing art installation “Disco Cell” which provided the backdrop to many selfies and tons of photo ops!

I can’t say enough about this event! We manage to top ourselves every year and this year was no exception! If you were able to make it this year, then you understand how it would be impossible to capture the magic of the night through a blog post! If you weren’t able to make it out this year, there’s always next year!

Thank you to everyone who made it such a special night!

2016 Floral Fantasy Winner

 

We are always excited to see how far our customer’s creativity can go and that is why we love the Floral Fantasy contest so much! As with any contest, picking a winner wasn’t easy but our team got together and picked the design that really spoke to the “disco celebration of color” theme for our annual Art In Full Bloom event.

Without further ado we would like to congratulate Brent Wang of Miguel Changs on being the winner of this years Floral Fantasy contest.

 

 

Brent describes the concept for “Disco Cell” as “a peak into the inner implosion of prismic color activity within one mirrored cell of a disco ball. Using reflections, lights and color, it creates a voyeuristic experience with a disco ball at the cellular level”.

We can dig that!

 

 

Can’t wait to see your vision come to life, Brent!

There are no words to describe how cool, creative, edgy, stunning and brilliant it was… ok maybe there were a few words but they still don’t do it justice!

We hope everyone had as good of a time as we did at this year’s Symposium. There were so many awesome pieces during Couture Collective, so we’ve chosen a few of our favorites to highlight on the blog, and the rest can be found here! Enjoy Couture Collective.
