BEHIND THE CURTAIN
Meet Samantha Vazquez, the Executive Producer, and Owner of SV Productions. From supporting teams in Paris and Milan to executing experiential events all over the United States, Samantha’s produced projects from $20,000 to $5,000,000+! Her events range from runway shows to luxury dinners, galas, conferences, and even mobile pop-up activations.
Before SV Productions, she worked for six years at 6up Productions, hitting her ceiling as Director of Events. Although she loved her role, she knew the only way she could grow and deliver the best experience for her clients, was to create her own company to do so. With a vision of specializing in budget planning, (she loves numbers!) strategy, logistics and execution, Samantha knew she had something.
The client and vendor relationships she has built, her innate ability to lead, and her B.A. degree in Business Marketing and Fashion Merchandising, makes her the perfect producer for your event. Assisting in all aspects from location scouting, to design creation, to vendor negotiations and day-of-execution, Samantha, coupled with the SV Productions team, is ready to execute at every level, for any type of event.
Meet Gus O'Sullivan, the Events Coordinator at SV Productions. Originally from the West Coast, (San Francisco, to be exact!), Gus moved to New York to follow his passion for luxury fashion events after receiving his B.A. in Business Marketing from Pace University. His fearlessness paired with his unwavering work ethic led him to Manhattan where he ended up working with Samantha. As fate would have it, Gus whole-heartedly jumped at supporting Samantha at SV Productions and took over the role of events coordinator. You can find him behind the scenes location scouting, managing event staff, running logistical support, and even social media management.
Meet Paulina Cardenas, our forward-thinking Event Coordinator. Paulina moved to NYC from San Diego in pursuit of working in the fashion industry with a focus on public relations and event production. She is the perfect match with her experience from both West and East coast locations in PR and wholesale at Media Playground PR, and social media marketing and events for high-end womenswear designer, Alexia Maria. No stranger to juggling and executing events such as the Mesa College's Golden Scissors Fashion Show, LIM College's Fashion & Sustainability Summit, Marina Testino's #YellowLikeALemon and #WeSeaThrough social media campaigns. She graduated in May 2020 with her B.A in Fashion Merchandising from LIM College.
