Friday the 7th of October: the presentation of "The GERT DESIGN's first collection Cushions & Art" at the HACO-store in Ibiza.
After a preview on the 30th of September for friends and family and people who were not on the island on the 7th of October it was finally time for the "real thing". But still a lot of work had to be done! Some canvasses had to be printed, the food had to be tested and in the HACO-store some little changes had to be made. It was also the presentation of the new kitchens in the showroom and Johan wanted some changes with the light spots. Of course a good cleaning day after all the work, all 72 different cushion-designs had to be presented on the HACO-furniture in a nice way and still needed price tags.
Thursday 200 rental glasses needed to be picked up, 100 wine bottles, beer and lemonade were delivered and was the last day to hang the canvasses on the walls. On Friday at 5 PM Gertjan had to drive to Restaurant El Zaguan to pick up the 150 pinxos. Johan made a nice music playlist and the party could start!
From the 170 invited 51 guests showed up. A great score! The first guests arrived 6 PM sharp and the last guest left at 11 PM.
At 7 PM Gertjan explained outside about his 7 themes (see photo).
And they sold cushions that evening too! Yes, it was a successful presentation!
