The photo above during the La Cienega Design Quarters Legends Event in LA last week. Celebrities, tastemakers, VIP's, editors, and various others, from the world of interior design, art, architecture and fashion, arrived by the thousands, for three days of amazing keynote speakers, panel discussions, receptions, book signings, networking and cocktail parties.
There were so many noteworthy happenings, I am writing several posts which will give detailed view of what goes on during the Legends events. Hopefully, my posts will make you feel as though you attended and entice you to attend a future La Cienega Legends Event.
An annual highlights of the Legend's event is the transformation of LCDQ member's storefronts in the La Cienega Design District. This year fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg and NYC designer, David Kleinberg, along with a host of talented designers, handpicked from across the country, designed amazing windows inspired by their choice of books and stories, in keeping with this year's theme, "Novel Interiors, Storytelling by Design."
My original intention was to name my top ten favorite windows today, but as I started working on the list, I came to the realization that every window deserved its own moment of glory. The amount of creativity and hard work the designers put into these windows deserves recognition. Since there were too windows for one post, I breaking the list into three posts. Thursday I plan to recap my top favorites, in a little more detail. I hope you enjoy the windows as much as I did. The windows were phenomenal in person! Without further adieu, I give you the first group of La Cienega Legends Designer Windows!
