ACPR: How did you start your career in the event industry and what services do you offer?
Anne: I started working in events in NYC at Showroom Seven doing the shows for designers. Later, I started my own firm called KRT with two partners and we worked on fashion shows, events, and press for designers and big and small fashion brands. We have been entrusted with every type of celebration from galas, dinner parties, launch events, birthdays, anniversaries, Mitzvahs, movie screenings, weddings, and corporate events.
ACPR: Where did you find inspiration for your showroom tablescapes?
Anne: I have been inspired by all things outside and green. I had a tropical destination in mind when planning the look. This could be outside in your backyard or on a beach somewhere.
ACPR: How has the pandemic affected your past and future events? How are you proactively keeping events safe for your clients?
Anne: The pandemic shut down many spring and summer events that were ready to go. A few cancelled and more rescheduled. We adjusted to much smaller guest counts.
We had ceremonies in backyards and are now making plans for bigger receptions next year. As I am planning events that are happening now we are doing everything possible to move outside and create space for guests, provide masks, and served-meals or have attendants at all food and beverage stations.
ACPR: What event trends do you think we will see going into the fall and holiday season?
Anne: Smaller events with more custom elements. Home entertaining that is more elevated and more meaningful. A chef creating the meal real-time, a speaker or live performances as part of the evening. Intimate celebrations that are truly reflective of the hosts.
ACPR: If you could plan and design any event in the world, what would it be and why.
Anne: The Met Gala would be up there! This event has all the elements I love: Art, Fashion, Pop Culture and it takes place in one of my favorite cities-NYC.
To work with Anna Wintour and the Vogue Team along with Raul Avila who produces the event and is a genius with all things- especially floral. I was able to see Avila’s creations and discuss projects while working in the building next door in the Meatpacking District in NYC.
