From the Queen City to big time Berlin, this local lady has done it all when it comes to planning events. Learn more and see how you can join her at Dress for Success Cincinnati’s annual fashion show and luncheon.
Whether it’s a small outdoor gatherings or an international production with the world’s most luxurious brands — Lindsey Huttenbauer and The Lindsey Baer Company can help.
“We deliver the utmost in performance, professionalism and style,” explains Huttenbauer. “Years of professional experience in both fashion and luxury have provided a wealth of resources and creative capabilities.”
Huttenbauer’s credentials are quite comprehensive with more than 15 years of industry experience. “Building on my relationships from coast to coast and abroad, I am always working to unearth the next trend in entertaining,” she explains.
With a nod to her southern upbringing, Huttenbauer says her discerning eye helps her to develop polished yet refreshing vision. Huttenbauer founded The Lindsey Baer Company after working with some of the world’s most iconic and stylish luxury brands. Her rolodex includes Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Elle Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, reality television series Project Runway and even runway shows including Zac Posen and Marc Jacobs, all of which she says has taught her invaluable lessons along the way.
Huttenbauer doesn’t just stick to local events, either. She offers domestic and global planning services, with an expansive contact base in several cities including New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and even in the Caribbean. But it’s not always big budget events. Huttenbauer says whether it’s an inexpensive affair or a million dollar production, she gives every occasion the utmost detail. Using her social southern grace as well as her ability to excel under pressure, and you’ve got the ultimate planner on your side for a seamless and unforgettable affair.
Throughout her career, Huttenbauer says there are several events that have been among her favorites to produce. One of the things she most enjoys is putting on an event in an unfamiliar location because she has a limited amount of time to discover the city’s best venues, floral designers and more in a place she’s never been. “Learning and understanding different cultures and social practices is also fascinating and the contacts made along the way are invaluable,” explains Huttenbauer.
She says that one of her favorite events was the Conde Naste Traveler’s annual dinner during the international travel trade show ITB in Berlin. She joined forces with a local magazine editor and discovered Axica, a Frank Gehry designed space located between the Brandenburg Gate and the Adlon Hotel for an event guests truly enjoyed.
Another one of Huttenbauer’s favorites is planning weddings. “It is such a blissful period for my clients and their families and I am always honored to play a role in creating that perfect celebration,” she says.
But to be honest, she adds, she treats each event like they’re the ‘big day’ for her clients. “I love interpreting and fine-tuning a client’s vision and orchestrating the various components as they come to fruition,” she adds. “It’s like being the conductor of my own symphony. When everyone is prepared and well-versed in their roles, the end result is amazing. I was born to entertain and am grateful to have a career doing what I love.”
