Spring is design time. The Greenwich Design District in Greenwich, Conn. will be hosting its second event, a “Day of Design,” on June 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at which time design professionals, influencers, editors, and consumers will come together to experience the latest trends in design. The first event last fall was a “Taste and Tour” of the district and attracted more than 300 participants throughout the evening.
The “Day of Design” will feature more than 15 talks, lectures, book signings, conversations, meet and greets in members’ shops and showrooms located in downtown Greenwich, Conn. Design industry editors, such as Sophie Donelson, editor-in-chief of House Beautiful, Traditional Home’s style editor Tori Mellott, and Serendipity’s home editor Stephanie Horton will be on hand, as textile designer Lori Weitzner and the co-founders of lighting company Apparatus. “Attendees may also learn about licensing and the business of design or how One King’s Lane’s founder designed a collection for the Shade Store,” according to spokespersons for the event. “Discover how antiques are being featured in some of the most contemporary spaces.”
Attendees may also chat with authors Cathy Graham, Kathryn Scott, and Marshall Watson as well as learn about architecture from AD100 firm McAlpine. The day is meant to bring the design community together to be enriched and learn from each other.
The Greenwich Design District is an opportunity for design related businesses to build relationships that will in turn help increase awareness and drive foot traffic to the participating shops. These relationships will help create trade programs, digital marketing, events, collaborations and more to benefit designers and consumers. The Greenwich Design District’s intent is to grow to include more businesses, designers, architects etc. in the area, all while becoming a go-to design shopping destination in Connecticut.
