Bringing the world of Fashion to Furnishings presented by Whittington & Co.

We have all heard that everything in design starts on the fashion runways.  Well last week Whittington & Co. www.whittingtonfurniture.com hosted an event that really brought this alignment of fashion & furnishings to the forefront.

The evening started with wonderful food and a lot of mingling while viewing the mannequins placed throughout the space and dressed in the newest fabrics, including the new Jonathan Adler collection.  Many of the fabric reps were there and their fabrics on mannequins as well.  My first career was fashion design so being around fabric always gets my creative juices going and of course mixing fashion and interior design is just perfect.  Fashion + Design = Happy

Love these mannequins

There was a `fashion show` with models wearing various upholstery fabrics to really emphasize the point and a grand unveiling of three spectacular chairs designed by Jason Mota in collaboration with Whittington artisans which were auctioned and funds going to Peel Children`s Aid.

Looking so Mysterious, shrouded in black cloth, couldn't wait to see what was underneath

My photos do not do these creations justice, but you get the idea


By the end of the fashion show, people were taking turns posing in the chairs.
