Design Design Inc. Introduces the Latest in Happy Hour Accessories

Forget what’s showing up on runways this season, the latest couture is in happy hour.

The West Michigan based personal expression company launched Party CoutureTM in 2012 to add even more flair to their wildly popular cocktailing product category. The line features bottle attire and beverage huggers to dress the average wine selection, or cool can of your favorite drink, in the latest fashions.

The launch features a dozen new items with gem-studded embellishments, satin accented trim and hilarious one- liners. Also featured are new themes in bottle stoppers, coasters and gift totes to complete the collection—and get the party started.

“This is a brand new line for us and we’re excited to expand our already successful cocktailing category,” says Colin Littler, Marketing Director. “Our retail customers are hip and savvy, and we’re pleased to offer them the latest trends they won’t find anywhere else,” says Littler.

Party Couture is one of several new product releases on the heels of an exciting rebranding in late 2011 for the family owned company. This transformation, coupled with a reconfiguration of their sales team leadership and product offerings, ushers in a new way of doing business with a fresh face for the company.

Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, their lines span over 6,400 trend-setting products for every occasion, sold in over 15,000 retail stores in the U.S., Canada and the UK.

MineField Village is an actual minefield-infested area in Cambodia, where women didn't have many job opportunities. Until @landminedesign came along. They taught women to create these beautiful delicate pieces of jewelry out of rolled paper beads. Check out 620 in Handmade to learn more about this amazing story. @ny_now
