A big congratulations to Edgardo Zamora of Revelry Event Designers on being named one of the top 35 Event Designers. Based in Los Angeles, Argentinian-born Zamora travels everywhere from Italy to Hawaii to design made-to-order looks for roughly 350 events a year, including corporate galas for clients like Gucci and Subaru, movie premieres and screenings, award productions like last year’s pre-BET Awards party, and social events.
“Geller Events turned to us to create a barn-style setting in a tent. We designed a dance floor area with a peaked ceiling using fabric and reclaimed wood beams. A drop-ceiling arbor over the dining area was covered with foliage and accented with wooden lanterns. Hand-painted hardwood floors helped set the stage of permanence for this temporary structure.” —Edgardo Zamora
How Biz Bash Chose the List:
We compiled this list after reviewing work from candidates across North America. We looked at not only the quality and volume of their work, but also the designers’ clients and reputations. The list favors those who work on corporate and nonprofit events, although we included some social event specialists. There are familiar names but also some surprises. Most importantly, we sought innovation—work that made the editors gasp or say, “I’ve never seen that before.”
