Now in its fourth consecutive year, LEGENDS is a three-day event that has attracted over 10,000 designers and enthusiasts. Today, LEGENDS is a prominent fixture on the national design event calendar. A fusion of art, fashion, design and culture, LEGENDS provides a unique combination of education and entertainment for those who appreciate design. Each year, LEGENDS embraces an overarching theme to pay homage to the people or things that help to create and inspire excellence in design. From May 9th-11th, 2012, LEGENDS will celebrate the impact that destinations in the world have on design. In support of the theme LEGENDS will, for the first time, extend the reach of its program beyond Los Angeles by inviting the most highly regarded interior designers from across the country and around the globe to decorate the legendary windows in the La Cienega Design Quarter.
“With over fifty highly respected design showroom and gallery members, the La Cienega Design Quarter is one of the nation’s premier shopping districts for design. Our LEGENDS of La Cienega celebration has become the most anticipated design event in the country. It is truly a convergence of culture and design with a tremendous sense of inspiration and community spirit. In addition to the dynamic window displays created by top designers from around the world, we are looking forward to unveiling exciting programming details for this year’s celebration as we celebrate Windows to the World,” states Lee Stanton, President of the LCDQ Board.
Legends media partners include the nation’s most prestigious shelter publications, including ELLE DÉCOR, House Beautiful, Traditional Home and VERANDA. Regional media partners include California Homes, California Home & Design and luxe. interiors+ design.
LEGENDS will feature a diverse array of programming and events, including several signature parties, nine keynote panel discussions moderated by the nation’s leading magazine editors, eight book signings, several tea and cocktail receptions, round table discussions with personal appearances, trunk shows, demonstrations, special exhibitions and more.
Most importantly, a select group of designers will use global destinations as their inspiration to transform the actual windows of the LCDQ members’ storefronts. This year the LCDQ also selected several emerging designers to showcase their talents. Veteran Legends designers will serve on the Legends Steering Committee and will participate as hosts, panelists or window designers.
