Donald Pliner celebrated his birthday on Saturday in the Village of Merrick Park store where he previewed the 2012 Resort Collection. The celebration was complete with cocktails, hors d’oeuvre’s, and of course birthday cake. The (delicious) designer cake by Ana Paz was modeled after one of Pliners’ own styles sitting atop a shoebox.
Perrier teamed up with St.Germain to provide drinks, St. Germain served their signature champagne based cocktail for the occasion. The store was filled with unique decor reminiscent of mayan culture along with unique styles. Pliner’s collection is made in Italy, but the original beading is crafted in India with glass beads from Czech Republic.
Attendees who purchased a Pliner original style received a special gift and personal autograph from Donald Pliner himself. Babydoll, Pliners’ adorable dog, stole the spotlight donning a pink tail for the occasion. We look forward to what Donald Pliner has in store next year!
