For Second Year in a Row Corky Kouture Participates in the Queen Universe Pageant

Indian Harbor, FL (3/14/14) – Lisa Riedel, owner of Corky Kouture has announced that they will be participating in the Queen Universe Pageant for the second year in a row by gifting the top ten winners, judges, and hosts with a Corky Kouture Gift Bag.  Inside these gift bags recipients will find Patritti Sparkly Juices and located in the gift card holder will be gift cards ranging in value from $25 – $100.
Lisa Riedel, owner and founder of Corky Kouture believes that women should be celebrated.  It is because of this that she has chosen to participate again in the prestigious Queen Universe Pageant.  She believes that gift giving is an art form, and has designed gift bags that represent this belief.  The gift bags that she has created have been made to ensure that the bag looks as good on the outside as the contents that can be found on the inside.
The Queen Universe Pageant  will take place on March 16th, 2014 at 7 PM at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills Los Angeles, California.  The pageant will benefit the UNESCO Foundation for Children in Need.  Joyce Giraud, the Founder of The Queen Universe Pageant, is an actress and model, a two time Miss Puerto Rico winner and the 2nd runner up in the 1998 Miss Universe pageant. She is also known for representing Puerto Rico at Miss World 1994, and for her roles in in episodes of Baywatch; in the film Dude, Where’s My Car?; and in the TV shows House of Payne and Joey and most recently, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Joyce Giraud shared with Corky Kouture’s Lisa Riedel “I have been dreaming of creating a pageant that gives women the opportunity to represent their countries, be ambassadors of women, have a voice to help their charities and use their titles to further their careers and goals in life while not being judged for being married, single, or having children.  That’s how Queen of the Universe was born and each day I thank God for my amazing group of Queens. They are exactly what I dreamed!”
Riedel will be attending the Pageant personally this year and is excited to be a part of such an amazing event dedicated to women.

Corky Kouture Creates and Presents Distinctive Gift for Beloved Celebrity Marie Osmond

Corky Kouture™ Teams Up with GlamPartyz to Add More Sparkle to Party Theme

Elegant parties and gorgeous wrappings – they just seem to go together. GlamPartyz is experienced at creating amazing parties. Now Corky Kouture™ is providing them packaging sizzle with their Glamour Galore gift bags. 

Pittsburgh, PA, October 6, 2011 – Corky Kouture™ Glamour Galore gift presentation bags will now be featured at GlamPartyz events. The collaboration is a natural fit, with both companies providing elegance and beauty in the lives of many women across the country.

GlamPartyz is a home-based business where party planners arrange spa-style parties for women to enjoy. Every party is different. They range from the very formal to the completely casual. Each of the GlamPartyz events has a distinct party theme. Now Corky Kouture™ gift bags will be incorporated into that theme. 
Corky Kouture™ gift bags are ideal for presenting wine, champagne, liquor, sparkling juices, bubble bath, or any gifts in similar bottles. The bags also have bejeweled pouches where gift cards, money, love notes or jewelry can be tucked away. The idea is to create a perfect keepsake of any happening.

 A spokesperson for Corky Kouture™ explained, “At Corky Kouture™ we know that an integral part of the gift giving process stems from its presentation and ensuring it is as beautiful as the sentiment it represents.”
Corky Kouture™ gift bags are also very handy. The bottles and gift cards can be placed easily into the presentation bags, with no tape, no scissors, and no fuss. Yet, the resulting package is more beautiful than other packages you might work hard to wrap. The Glamour Galore bags are the best in both ways.

GlamPartyz and Corky Kouture™ are alike in the fact that they have each created unique products. There are no other presentation bags anything like the Glamour Galore gift bags. By the same token, there is no home-based business out there that does what GlamPartyz does.

The brilliant thing about GlamPartyz is that participants can attend a party and enjoy themselves. They do not have to worry about getting a sales pitch or buying any products. The whole idea is to have a wonderful time. People who wish to get in on the business can become party organizers themselves, but there is no pressure placed on anyone at the parties. They are just a good time.

The GlamPartyz motto is “Live to be Glamorous!” That fits right in with the products and ideas from Corky Kouture™. With this collaboration, the gift packaging is as stunning as the party is exciting. The two together make for an enchanting event, and provide the ingredients for fond and glorious memories.

About Corky Kouture™:
Corky Kouture™ offers a selection of beautiful and dazzling presentation packaging for bottled gifts. Corky Kouture™ was founded in 2009, and is owned by Lisa Riedel.
