Day one was spent learning about the Brizo fashion faucet product line and meeting some amazing and creative people from near and far. Brizo's impressive design and marketing teams took us through the whole process from dreaming of an idea to the birth of a product which takes about a year to a year and a half to implement. One of my favorite items was the Virage line of bath faucets. Striking and beautiful in its simplicity, it's a total "twist", literally. If you look closely you can see it makes a complete twist from base to spout.

We spent the evening dining and getting acquainted at Barbes, a Moroccan restaurant where we received our official invitation to Jason's fashion show tomorrow! I sat with Brizo's Ad Men, Kurt and Trevor of Young and Laramore, Brizo's Laura Brooks, Sr. Brand Manager and Jai Massela, Sr. Channel Marketing Manager. I got some great insight into how this luxury division of Delta faucets came about and how they came up with the name Brizo. More later on that.
Some of the other people I had the pleasure of chatting with are Nancy Hugo of Kitchen & Bath Chatter , Mike Welton of Architects and Artisans, and Bob Borson of Life of an Architect . Click on their names to find out more about them. Day 2 begins with a design contest and it's countdown to the fashion show! Stay tuned.
