A Special Thanks to Group 868

Thanks to showroom Group 868, we are welcoming some of the the industries hottest designers including Halo & Co, Francesca Miranda and Cocoa Voci! In 2007, CEO/Founder Mindy Woon and Vice President Ivan Meza combined their years of experience to create a showroom that “prides itself in providing its clientele with the tools needed to have proven sales growth and market penetration.” Neither were strangers to the glamorous world of luxury bridal before their collaboration. With over 20 year of experience, Woon was a renaissance woman in the industry with experience as a designer, pattern-maker and buyer. Directly prior to  Group 868, Mindy was the Buyer/Manager of the iconic Bergdorf Goodman bridal salon and was responsible for their booming business. Meza started his career at a young age by being recruited by Federated Department Stores’ Executive Training Program. After getting his feet wet in the industry,  he was then scouted to become the Northeast Region Account Executive of Pronovias, one of the most influential bridal design houses in the world! With their combined knowledge and impeccable eye for fashion, they have created a fabulous atmosphere for wholesale buyers looking for fresh and original designs.

 

Welcome Cocoe Voci to COUTURE

Cocoe Voci  is  another fabulous designer  brought to us by our friends at Group 868. Voci  is a west coast designer  with a delicate, feminine aesthetic and fabulous attention to detail.  In her early 2o’s, fresh out of design school, Cocoa began her career as a retailer and eventually gained the following of many local brides. It wasn’t long until her success reached the Hollywood Hills, dressing A-list actress and even having her garments featured in a variety well known films and television programs. In early 2012 Voci launched a “Reprise Debut” of her bridal collection and continues to be a rising star in the industry. What will she have in store for us next?
