Joe Harris Kari Events and Event Styling
Events and Floral Design are like special work of Art to me.Each client represents a wide spectrum of exceptional likes and differences and the job of the coordinator and stylist is to see the vision of the client and bring it to life.
While in college during my architecture years at Western Mindanao State University I joined theatre guild, and it exposed me to the world of thespianism showing a large interest in lighting, make-up and set design aside from acting and costume design which i enjoyed a lot.It pulled me out from my shell.It was a synergy of enthusiasm,of exhilaration, and of independence.It freed myself from restrictions and conventions.I did not finish the course out of dejection.
Aside from gaining subjects in architecture where i learned the principles and elements of art and drafting skills and the history of architecture which in truth clasped my interest,my degree in Home Economics as a second academic course further helped me gain knowledge about great food and beverages,furnishing,flowers,crafts and decor,and table settings which is also a great interest of mine since childhood.I got high grades in my TLE/Home Economics subjects way back elementary and secondary years in academe.My penchant in Fashion & Music created a different twist in the events that i made.I started designing clothes when i was 20 yrs old (im now 28) – i was still at the university then for the second course.I started with unseamed fabrics with the aid of pins to create gowns.I would buy meters of cloth and would wrap it around in various techniques to my muses.Beautiful gowns,but the procedure was primitive. I honed my craft.
Needless to say, these interests and exposure helped me organized weddings,debut celebrations,and soiree.
I opened up my own Event Management and Event Styling services during the summer of 2008 started with my friends .I really had a hard time doing events at the early stage of my career.I learned myriad things and truly enjoys a lot in this developmental stage.
