Los Angeles designer Tadashi Shoji likes to be creative. And he likes working with creative people.That's why he has employed the help of a group of architecture students at Woodbury University in Burbank, Calif., to study the brand, explore the boundaries between branding and retailing and create installation concepts for his new Glendale Galleria concept store.The students focused on installations using repurposed and off-the-shelf materials, which could be used in Shoji's expansion later this year to San Jose, Calif., and the Middle East. Shoji also collaborated with architecture firm March Studio in Santa Monica, Calif."Combining fashion-forward designs with out-of-the-box elements will not only enrich the customer experience but will entice them to return again and again," the Japanese-born designer said.The new store space encompasses 2,200 square feet and offers an eclectic range of Tadashi Shoji's eveningwear collection. The June 20 opening marks the first in a series of short-term concept stores that will be used to test key target markets as part of the company's global rollout strategy. Currently, Shoji’s designs can be seen by his faithful celebrity clientele, of whom include Michelle Obama, Octavia Spencer, Ciara, Mindy Kaling, Britney Spears and Nina Dobrev, to name a few.   Source…
The collection, created by Rolls-Royce Bespoke Designer, Michael Bryden, consists of two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekender bags and one Garment Carrier. Designed to specifically highlight its two-tone finish, the collection complements the design principles of the Wraith itself and enables customers with the opportunity to personalize their luggage to match the interior of their car, with customized hand-stitching done by master craftsmen (who wore white gloves to do so in order to preserve the leather, no less). Winning! The design of the luggage collection was inspired by insights from head butlers at some of the world’s most respected hotels, who noticed that frequent and accomplished travelers rarely handled their own luggage. Only one small bag is usually handled by the owner. Because of this, the company paid particular attention to the Long Weekender bag that features even weight distribution and a perfectly smooth finish on the handle.   Rolls-Royce utilized carbon fiber for the suitcases' internals. The stitching is matched to the color of buyers' Rolls-Royces, and the handles have an invisible stitch to ensure a smooth finish. Buyers also have a choice between a two-tone or monotone leather exterior appearance.   The collection includes six pieces, each…
On April 6, Hermès Design District hosted the Power of the Purse annual luncheon to benefit the Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade. Famous supermodel turned entrepreneur, Elle Macpherson served as the event’s honorary chair. We had the chance to talk to Macpherson about the organization.She mentioned "When I moved to Miami in late 2014 after 17 years in London, I was eager to find community. I know from experience, the best way to feel part of a community is through service so I started asking friends what work I could do and with whom. My friend Tiffany Zientz Heckler suggested I explore the work the Women’s Fund was doing in Miami. I visited many of their initiatives and decided to reach out to see if I could help at all. This led me to co-hosting and co-chairing the Power of the Purse (among other things). I’m grateful to have this opportunity to help."Founded 23 years ago, The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade has provided more than $3.7 million to 480 programs supporting women and girls in Miami-Dade. This includes the seed money for programs advocating for women and girls such as Lotus House and Casa Valentina. The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade is a leader…

The idea for Sparkle and Shine Darling started with a fabulous trip to Paris, France. Adrienne Bosh visualized a space where women could shop a curated collection of sparkly-shiny pieces from around the world, where they could meet to celebrate life’s big and small moments, where they could unwind with a flute of bubbly and a melt-in-your-mouth macaron. And now, that dream is a reality. Women are amazing. They're a mix of vulnerability and strength. They create art, meals, life itself. They're all unique and yet they have so much more in common than what we see on the surface. Sparkle and Shine Darling is a reflection of that. It’s more than a physical space to shop, celebrate and relax. The hope is that it’s also a haven, a place for community and friendship, positivity and support. Sparkle and Shine Darling officially opens at Miami Beach this Monday, Nov 16th. Here is more information about Sparkle and Shine Darling :   According to Miami Racked : "The store is filled with knick-knacks and novelties that could appease every person in your life.
