i’m so excited to feature designer Bunny Williams in this installment of “MDS Interviews” for many reasons. first, she is one of my favorites! i have blogged about her more times than i can count. second, she is one of your favorite designers too. every time i do a post featuring her or her work the blog traffic is off the charts- i love her and you all love her too!
i am in nyc this week and as always the first place i go is to my favorite store in the city, john rosselli antiques, the chic store owned by bunny’s husband. what made this trip today even more special is that after i did some shopping i went up five floors in the same building to Bunny’s office to say hello. bunny and i chatted and i told her that i was so excited to see her the day before featuring her in today’s MDS Interviews series.
i also told her i was going to keep my introduction short and sweet because i have blogged about her so many times and really what everyone wants to hear is, more from her- their favorite designer! i did take the opportunity to make sure she knew what an influence she has been for me and so many others. it’s very simple- there are many designers with great taste and there many designers who are kind and gracious but there are very few that are both!
Bunny is a rare gift and a great example. a special talent, one of the best, more important, she is genuinely kind and always gracious- simply, a lovely, lovely lady! i told her all this and she simply said, “thank you, that’s what my mother would want people to say.”
i know you are all going to love a little more of everyone’s favorite designer Bunny Williams- the designer who has it all, most important, she has what matters! enjoy!
