2009 Couture Design Awards

2009 Couture Design Awards

15 July 2009

The Couture Design Awards, the signature event of the Couture Show, exists to recognize the world’s most visionary designers, uncover new and emerging talent, and promote the appreciation of jewelry and timepiece design worldwide.

The Couture Design Awards Ceremony took place at Wynn’s most distinguished hotel, Encore, in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 30, 2009 in front of an audience of more than 450 members of the Jewelry community including retailers, exhibiting designers, and press. Surprise guest and celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe of "The Rachel Zoe Project" on Bravo TV, opened the evening’s festivities.

The evening ceremony for Couture Design Awards 2009 brought nearly three weeks of competition to a close. More than 10,000 votes were cast online during the first round of voting from May 13 to May 22. The online voting process narrowed the field of nominees to three in each of the 13 categories for a total of 39 finalists, who were unveiled on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 at the Couture 2009 Welcome Reception hosted by Jill Zarin from The Real Housewives of New York City. More than 4,000 votes were cast on site at Couture 2009 during the final round of voting.
