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.”

With the arrival of spring we’ve not only enjoyed a wonderful response to our new collections, we’ve enjoyed ourselves at a handful of industry events and celebrations. Most recently, at last evening’s Design on a Dime 2014 Opening Night Reception. Crowds gathered to see the work of leading interior designers who have created spectacular vignettes that will be offered for sale to the public.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Housing Works, an organization serving low-income New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Since 2005, Design on a Dime has raised more than $7 million in support of Housing Works.
We were proud to support the efforts of New York interior designer Robin Baron. Our trimmings can be seen on accessories throughout her vignette.
