Is it the attention to details? The eye for grandeur? The exquisite taste and sense of style? The exclusive rolodex of who's who?
Or is it the ongoing record of never ever having wet weather in her years of organising events here in Singapore?
Olga Iserlis has launched a book titled 'Save the Date' to share her experience and an insider's view into events planning, with clients consisting of multinational companies, global luxury brands, government institutions, as well as non-profit organisations.
Printed in a limited edition of 1,500 copies, the coffee-table book sure to spark lively conversations with those familiar with the society scene or knowledge of the highly competitive industry, is illustrated with rarely seen photographs and specially commissioned illustrations, and in some cases, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at ultra exclusive events that she has organized.
These include the grand re-opening of Audemars Piguet flagship store at Liat Towers, to Victoria Beckham's private showcase at Marina Bay Sands -- both of which we were privileged to attend.
Written with a personal narrative, the book is filled with humorous anecdotes as well as unique insights into the author's life as well as the business that she has created.For many years, people have asked me to write a book about my journey, my life as an event planner, and my process of creating different experiences for my clients"
Ms Iserlis adds, "I have decided finally to share some of the elements of the creative and execution processes that I go through whenever I conceptualize and stage an event. This book is also a legacy for my children."
The exquisitely designed and crafted volume is now available for the price of SGD$88 as Louis Vuitton Marina Bay Sands, ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands Gift Shop, Vanilla Home, Beauty Candy, Asiatique, Partners & Muccia, and The Sanchaya Bintan.
