Tomorrow, October 5, from 10:00am-5:00pm, The Avenues: Art, Fashion and Design District in West Hollywood, CA will be home to a free day-long event called DIEM: Design Intersects Everything Made.
This inaugural event is a “symposium to inspire, educate and encourage integral design.” It will host a bevy of design pros, allowing them to collaborate and learn more about the current state of the industry by way of keynotes and forums. The focus is on the arenas of fine art, architecture, food and fashion, and how they are poised to change the rapidly developing arenas of retail and design. DIEM sums it all up nicely, saying, “The universe is not being pushed from behind; itʼs being pulled from the future.”
Not to be missed events include Erin Feher of California Home + Design Magazine talking about LA’s cultural renaissance; the future of art and museums discussed by Francis Anderton and Shana Nys Dambrot; and…Stylesight! Trend Director, Nicole Guarascio, will present “Bridging the Gap Between Online an Offline,” which discusses the relationship between consumerism, merchandising and technology, diving deep into its inevitable impact on the global retail landscape. Consumer demand is at an ultimate high, and savvy retailers need to react swiftly to ensure their messaging is speaking to trendy shoppers.
Nicole’s talk will take place at the Christopher Guy showroom, 8900 Beverly Boulevard, Suite 106 in West Hollywood, beginning at 3:15pm.
DIEM promises to be an inspirational day that will allow makers and doers in the design world to shake up the dialogue and think about shifting the paradigm in a new, consumer-friendly direction. It’s time for “commerce to bend to art, and not the other way around.” See you there! - Sarah Moore
