FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 2016, DALLAS- Doing what Moore Design Group does best, Principal Stephanie Moore-Hager travelled to New York City to provide her unique perspective on fashion you live with every day at Brizo’s gala fashion event. Hager was chosen from among the nation’s elite multifamily designers, developers and architects to participate in interactive product sessions providing valuable insight into high-end faucet collections for the kitchen, bath and shower.
Positioned at the vanguard of faucet design, Brizo is the central sponsor of renowned fashion designer Jason Wu. Not long ago the two fashion powers recently joined forces to bring the Jason Wu for Brizo Collection to life proving runway trends influence more than the just fashion you wear.
Not limited to input from the fashion runway, Brizo recognizes that interior designers live in the daily trenches of design imagination exploring new and dramatic ideas to combine design motif with functionality in everyday living spaces. With that in mind, Brizo sponsors annual workshop events seeking direction from experts like Hager. This year’s event incorporated round table discussions judging products in various stages from concept to production.
Judd Lord, Sr. Director of Industrial Design for Brizo kicked off the event with a focus group discussing fashion development for urban design. Hager has long been established as an expert in the field of multifamily design integrating the puzzle pieces of total design sophistication to the most private of living areas like your master bathroom.
Product sessions included evaluating Brizo’s design and research process vetting prototypes of twenty to thirty fixtures with the group. “The audience is tech savvy,” said Jai Robinson, Sr. Channel Marketing Manager for Brizo. “What we learn during this research process is invaluable. It literally assists in refining and finalizing the product itself. Judgments from successful designers, like Stephanie, are the lifeblood of our creativity.”
“This form of presentation and participation in product sessions really helped work through the noise of the larger design spaces to elevate and emphasize the fine point of meticulously designed faucets and showering accessories.” said Hager.
The fashion event was not restricted to product sessions alone. The goal of the event was to offer design imagination coupled with a unique experience for the participants. Guests of the event were provided accommodations at the modern and sophisticated Eventi Hotel where, to their delight, they experienced firsthand an encounter with Brizo’s newest line of faucets specially installed for the affair.
For an entire week New York City was electrified with social and cultural fashion events throughout the city. Hager, along with the other participants, were rewarded for imparting their expertise with VIP access to Jason Wu’s Fashion Show and exclusive after- party.
Hager is no novice when it comes to applying her craft having been recognized in her industry as the 2015 Distinguished Alumni from The Art Institute of Dallas (AID). The award, presented in December, was for the most notable graduate among all AID alumni nationwide, paying tribute to Hager for her outstanding achievements in the interior design industry.
Hager has enjoyed repeated recognition by the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) with their prestigious Legacy of Design Awards and Design Ovation Awards; while also receiving the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) Pillars of the Industry Awards for her modern and purposeful designs.
“Even after more than 23 years in the industry, we still approach every project with the belief that design is a lifestyle,” Hager said. “Brizo’s design process proves that form and function have a place in fashion design at a very basic life level. It was truly a pleasure to being included in this methodical yet exhilarating process.”
