On the evening of July 13th, guests at our Designer Series event featuring Roger Thomas, presented in partnership with Architectural Digest, were treated to a preview of the new Shangri-La collection. Nearly 100 members of the local design community, including our good friend Lori Weitzner, gathered to hear Roger speak to his creative process and what inspired his new hand-beaded, embroidered collection of silk and linen borders. Following the presentation, guests gathered on our rooftop patio garden for cocktails and a chance to steal a moment of conversation with our guest of honor.
Watch for the formal launch of the Shangri-La collection on August 15th.
“Shangri-La is the city of romantic dreams, the earthly paradise and thus this is a collection of ethereal, hand-beaded, embroidered silk and linen borders which explores patterns through a broad palette of sumptuous hues.”
