legends 2014 took place a little over a week ago here in LA. LCDQLA has become quite the design event…designers, vendors, editors and lots of friends converge onto to LA for a few days to celebrate great design and most important, to have some fun.
each year there is a theme and designers are asked to do windows for the showrooms lining the streets of la cienega and melrose. this years theme was novel interiors…each designer picked a novel to inspire their window.
i did the windows for one of my favorite stores/showrooms, hollyhock. i picked the novel, orient express, because i wanted to do a blue and white window (of course i did!), anything and everything blue and white makes me happy. the windows were not only inspired by the novel orient express, but by beautiful blue and white rooms past and present, as well as, by valentino fashion collections past and present.
i have to thank gracie studio, brunschwig and fils, jasper, christopher spitzmiller, jf chen, the future perfect, kristen buckingham, and lindsay cowles for all their support, as well as, the brilliant hayley sarno, the amazing team at hollyhock (they made this an absolute joy and pleasure), and most important my wonderful team and contractors (corinne, laura, renee, nash, doug, diana, david, and shari)
i’m sad to say the windows are going to be taken down today, however, the mds orient express will continue- blue and white is forever!
