One of my favorite design events of the year, Legends of La Cienega is just around the corner! I had to sit out last year as I was in the thick of installing my room and terrace at the Southern Style Now Showhouse in New Orleans as the Legends festivities were happening in Los Angeles. I’ll be heading back to L.A. as an ambassador for the third time come May 9 – 11. The event spans two and a half days, including the opening gala, and is filled with a flurry of activity from keynote panels, presentations, power lunches, book signings, cocktail parties, and amazing networking opportunities. Designers, editors, and the who’s who of the design industry flock to L.A. for Legends every year. There is always a buzz and energy unlike anything I have experienced at other design events and there is no doubt that Legends of La Cienega is the “must-attend” design event of the year.
Each year, a group of designers are invited to create inspiring window displays on La Cienega and Melrose in the spirit of that year’s theme. This year, the theme is “Your True Colors”, so it will be fun to see how everyone interprets the theme into their designs. This year’s roster of designers was recently announced and includes renowned designers such as Alexa Hampton, Windsor Smith, Philip Gorrivan, Michelle Nussbaumer, and David Netto among many others (view the full list here). Just today, the group of 2017 Legends Ambassadors is being announced and I am thrilled to be included in such a talented and fun group of friends and peers.
