Fresh from placing in a prestigious on-line couture design contest with Henri Bendel, Biss created an exclusive item which she designed for the event featuring recent illustrations and artwork on gift tags, wrapped in her trademark pink box and black satin bow. In addition, Biss created a packet especially for the press in attendance by creating a flier with information, presented in a linen folder and hand stamped with her logo.
“I am delighted to be a part of this year’s EMMY Awards,” says Ms. Biss. “It is truly a thrill to present my artwork this way and I wish to thank The indiExhibit for including me in their gift bag!”
The gift bags will be given out at the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards gift lounge hosted by luxury gift lounge and special events company, GBK, and Tic Tac® Mints, on September 16th and 17th from 11am—6pm at the W Hotel in Hollywood, California.
