WHERE:

WHO’S INVITED:
Everyone who received an invite directly from Zorz Studios and loves us. Please note that this is a PRIVATE party, extended to friends, clients, business partners, and Zorz Studios’ mailing list members as of 08/10/09.

.

Come party with us and celebrate the formal launch of Zorz Studios’ Manhattan studio! Meet the studio’s founder (yours truly), our talented team, and our partners from Rouge Makeup Studio! Check out our additional space on Broadway, enjoy the art of Zorz Studios, share your experience or thoughts, savor the complimentary bites and sips, groove to our own mix of European club music, take a bag full of goodies with you, and play to win more gifts! The event will be professionally (and aesthetically) catered so you will be in good hands! Oh… whether you behave or party hard, you might be captured on video, so prepare to show your best and be featured in a cool video clip on our website!

And, if you happen to be a Facebook fan of Zorz Studios, you will be handed a bonus $25 gift certificate. That will fall nicely on top of selected goodie bags that I am personally hand-picking for the guests. Sweet, eh?

Here’s more to the night: after this nice little party, join us for an uplifting celebration of my birthday at Hammerstein Ballroom, trancing to the euphoric tracks of one of my favorite deejays, DJ Tiesto, who opens his 18-month world tour in NYC. Be prepared for it just in case as we will raffle two tickets to this concert right at the launch party! Tickets are also available for purchase at participating agencies.

But here’s where things get a bit hairy… In a consideration of space, the guest list has to be limited to 75 people so… beat them and be among them! Admittance will be put into effect by the approved guest list. If you received an invite, RSVP on Zorz Studios Facebook fan page, or by e-mailing to RSVP@zorzstudios.com. The guest list is now closed, no more RSVPs accepted.

We also offer sponsorship opportunities to promote related businesses.

Check back to see what else we will come up with and to check on the latest updates to the party!

After a tremendous response to invitations, we quickly reached the capacity of the room and the guest list. We are temporarily closing it and may re-open it if anything changes. All future RSVPs will be placed on a waiting list. We apologize about this measure, aimed at our guests’ safety and comfort.

09/22/09 UPDATE: MEET THE LEGENDS
Meet some of the legends of Zorz Studios! Their images stirred the emotions and were subjects of long discussions and excitement among the studio’s fans and followers. I am so excited to announce that I will have an honor to give them to you! Meet the real people behind these iconic images, including the one and only, who became part of the brand identity, Zorz Studios’ logo.  Unveil their stories behind the scenes and let them share their unique experience!

09/22/09 UPDATE: EXOTIC PERFORMANCE

It is with a great delight that I announce the performance of Aisha, an astonishing belly dancer who generously accepted my invitation to the launch party.

An award-winner from Russia, Aisha is a professional dancer, entertainer, and model who has successfully participated in many belly dance and beauty competitions. She received “Miss Charming” award in “Miss Belly Dance of Russia 2007” contest in Moscow.

Do not miss her enchanting performance!

The dress code is dressy casual to cocktail attire. No tuxedos on gentlemen are required. And ladies, feel free to impress, as there is a chance of a televised coverage of the party…

09/23/09 UPDATE: THE HOSTESS
It is an honor for Zorz Studios that Ana Asensio, Spanish model and actress, will be hosting our launch party. Originally from Madrid, Spain, she will be greeting and assisting our guests as they arrive and leave. I am confident that her courteous and charming personality will distinctly fit and enhance our party.

    Donna,

    Unfortunately, the guest list is closed, as stated in the blog. The primary goal of this party is not to network but to show appreciation to the existing clients, friends, and vendors.

  12. […] During the party guests most of whom were formers clients had the opportunity to party and enjoy photographs by the said the photographers.  At one point the man of the hour stopped the party to review some of his recent work with the ACTUAL clients.  It was quite amazing to listen to the stories of how many of the pictures came to be.  One couple won the opportunity to have their picture taken with Ed and were freezing at having their picture taken in a boat with rain but the results were worth it.  Another couple had risque pictures taken by the photographer with the fiance going commando for them.  Now, these I wanted to see but they were not present. I wonder why that it is?  Hmmm…  You can see some of this work by clicking here. […]
