Design Event Photography in LA never disappoints, and this occasion was no exception! I returned to Mehraban Rugs to capture their Legends 2023: Fashions of Home event. They hosted the event in their West Hollywood showroom. It featured a keynote discussion with acclaimed luxury designer, Erin Fetherston.
Mehraban Rugs is known for their unique, luxury rugs that transform interiors into daring and artistic spaces. I absolutely love the original art their designers create! It was such a thrill to be able to showcase each designer’s individual style within the showroom. Attendees enjoyed interacting with the high-end pieces.
The Keynote Discussion
Erin Fetherston joined California Home + Design magazine to discuss the ever-evolving intersection between fashion and interior design for their 2023 Legends Design Festival. The discussion was led by CA Home + Design editorial director, Lindsey Shook. She and Erin discussed wide ranging topics from taking inspiration from fashion to home decor, to the importance of collaboration. Erin’s work is celebrated around the world and has been featured in collaboration with famous fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth to actress Kirsten Dunst. She has sold pieces at major companies ranging from Neiman Marcus to Target and everything in between.
Networking with Designers: Design Inspiration!
After the keynote discussion, Erin mingled with event attendees to chat about all things design! It was so much fun getting to see how excited everyone was to speak with her. Attendees asked her about her experience and enjoyed learning from her. It was inspirational for all!
Mehraban’s curated showroom featured rugs from 16 talented designers from around the world. Each of the designers was present for the keynote discussion, and they too mingled with attendees after the chat. It was fun meeting each designer and guessing which rug they designed! All of the pieces were so unique.
Lastly, event attendees enjoyed a lunch catered by Kogi Korean BBQ. This famous Korean-Mexican fusion food truck is famous throughout the Los Angeles area! Amazing food, inspirational design talks, and mingling with creatives– what more can you want?
