linhardt grand opening party in our new location, 211 mott street between prince and spring st
I’ve been in the gallery all day and haven’t had a chance to exhale yet, but wanted to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to all who came out last night to celebrate the Linhardt Grand Opening in Nolita! There are days that are so long – and crazy situations that make me want to pull my hair out sometimes – but then there are days like yesterday that overwhelm me with happiness! Was so great to see clients come back after working together years ago – even those coming from different states to represent! Amazing to see EVERYONE! I feel entirely blessed and want you all to know how much your support means to me. Words are not my strong point but I will channel all this wonderful energy you gave me into new and exciting work! I will never forget last night. THANK YOU.
It has been months of planning and coordinating, and I am thrilled that everything came together because of all the wonderful people who shared their talents + generous spirits – Special Thanks to the wonderful TEAM Sarah, Laura, Norma and Jaime – you are AMAZING I am honored to be working with you incredibly special people – seeing you all breeze through the stressful days with charm, poise and laughter made it a fun project! I also had a great time working with close friends who are extraordinarily talented – the custom cases + desk looked amazing Stéphane Hubert Design and the infinity mirror is pimping Wary Meyers – thanks to Diego at Point Design for the architectural work and endless advice, you all rock!!!
