Ladies Who Launch is proud to join with Residence Inn by Marriott to host an event celebrating dynamic women in business and presenting the launch story of Allison Costa and Amy Feldman, best friends and inventors of the COVERPLAY, a slipcover for play yards.

Highlighting this event is the premier of a new web series, New Arrivals: A Journey to Start-Up Success
.   As a new mother, Allison loved putting her twins in their play yard where they would nap, hang out, and play together but it stood out like a sore thumb in the custom-designed living space of this interior decorator and footwear designer. The solution? Whimsical patterns and traditional styles complete a classic collection of comfortable, kid-friendly sheets and slipcovers that fit virtually all play yards.  

But Allison had limited sewing skills and little experience with large scale production- she knew she needed help and needed it fast. Luckily good friend Amy is a designer with an eye for fabulous fashions and the latest looks. Discovered by New York's legendary Henri Bendel boutique, Amy honed her business chops while launching a successful line of diaper bags sold in Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Babies R Us. Star-obsessed boutiques Fred Segal and Kitson also carried her lines. She brought her Hollywood baby connections to the table and continues scoping out innovative fashion finds that keep COVERPLAY designs fresh and exciting.  

With patent in hand the duo made waves in the LA and beyond, even appearing on the ABC show SharkTank
. This past year, the entrepreneurs got their biggest break yet: when they signed a deal with five Marriott brands to offer COVERPLAY for the new Tots Travel Too program. In addition, to the complimentary COVERPLAY, matching sheets and a bath toy, and upon arrival, complimentary items, such as baby shampoo, lotion, night lights and outlet covers are now stocked at the front desk, helping to make traveling with young kids easier. Launched in May, Tots Travel Too is available at more than 2,500 Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, SpringHill Suites Residence Inn, and TownePlace Suites hotels in the Marriott portfolio of brands.   

Highlighting this event is the premier of a new web series, New Arrivals: The Journey to Start-Up Success, that follows the COVERPLAY founders Allison Costa and Amy Feldman, from the arrival of their big shipment to their search for a new office as they outgrow their home work station. Along the way the two will share their own tips on balancing it all, staying friends while being business partners, and travel tips for business or family trips (Allison travels with three 6-year-old boys so she knows a thing or two about being organized).  

Enjoy networking, complimentary cocktails and appetizers, and a preview of the latest episode of New Arrivals: A Journey to Start-Up Success
all while enjoying the new Residence Inn lobby design at brands hotel in the heart of Burbank. Spaces are limited so register today!   Visit www.marriott.com/totsTravel2 for more information about Tots Travel Too.
