Introducing the newest member of Exquisite Designs – Mana Discekici

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Hello Everyone!

My name is Mana Discekici and I will be the new voice behind our blog posts! I am ecstatic to be welcomed into the Exquisite Designs family, and I cannot wait to share with you the newest trends, questions, concerns, and advice surrounding the event industry.

I will also have the pleasure of being on site for most events, helping design behind the scenes. I take pride in my passion for this industry, and my previous work experience has helped me cultivate sophisticated organization skills that I look forward to contributing at each event. These qualities have molded me into an ideal candidate for this position, and I am lucky that I get the chance to flourish at a company as wonderful as Exquisite Designs.

The best feeling in the world (to me) is taking a step back to look at a finished event. After all the planning and designing – those few moments when you realize how incredibly pretty everything turned out make it all worth it and then you get to do it all over again!

Also, here are 10 fun facts about me!

  1. I’m half Turkish and half Japanese
  2. I can speak more Japanese than Turkish (sorry dad)
  3. My favorite food is sushi and lamb kabobs (perfect mix of my two cultures!)
  4. I’m obsessed with my puppy, April- she’s half Labrador and half Shar-pei…can you get any cuter?!
  5. I enjoy and try to collect red wines
  6. I have a degree in English Media Professional Writing from UIC!
  7. I’m 100% a city girl and love the lively feel of Chicago.
  8. Trying a new restaurant each week is something my friends and I love to do.
  9. I go to Disney World at LEAST once a year!
  10. My favorite movies are Sleepless in Seattle, Father of the Bride, and The Wedding Planner
