Southern Style Now // May 2016

The inaugural Southern Style Now festival took place May 18-22, 2016 in New Orleans. It was a remarkable celebration of design, marked by keynotes from industry icons like  Bunny Williams, India Hicks, Julia Reed, Lisa Fine and Suzanne Rheinstein, panel discussions, cocktail and dinner parties, exhibitions, a spectacular Traditional Home showhouse and a series of windows on Magazine Street imagined by hand-selected designers, each based on one of the seven deadly sins.

CLOTH & KIND was invited by Southern Style Now founder and creator, Robert Leleux - former editor of Domino magazine and former managing editor of Lonny, to design a window at the Kevin Gillentine Gallery and also to speak on a panel about textiles with our esteemed peers Peter Fasano, Elizabeth Hamilton, Stacy Waggoner and Kate Reynolds. Take a peek at our window installation below...

Special thanks to our partners in making the window possible, including Clay McLaurin for the use of two of his new Spring '16 textiles - Reeds & Vine, The World Art Group and artist Ethan Harper for working with us to create the crazy custom artwork we dreamed up, local drapery & soft goods workroom Brandon Wilkins for the impeccable custom fabric covered shadow boxes, Pierre-Paul for mounting the artwork in such a way that allowed for them to float effortlessly within the shadow boxes and last but not least, to Kevin & Vincent at the Kevin Gillentine Gallery for being such gracious hosts.
