You’re Invited: State of the Union, LA Design Now at DIEM


Is Los Angeles on the cusp of a cultural revolution? That’s the question I will be examining this Friday with three of the city’s most cutting-edge creatives when we sit down for State of the Union: LA Design Now at DIEM.

A two-day design event hosted by the Avenues, DIEM promises 48 hours of talks and experiences that are nothing like what the party-hopping design crowd has come to expect. Think TED for the SoCal creative set. California Home+Design is extremely proud to be partnering with DIEM and heading up Friday morning’s keynote (as upending expectations is something we take seriously over here). For the event, I will sit down with LA fashion designer Gregory Parkinson, who is fresh off a plane from Paris after a sucessful Spring 2013 showing at Fashion Week; Bob Hale of Rios Clementi Hale Studios, the people who brought you LA’s most gorgeous new green space, Grand Park, as well as hundreds of other projects that have shaped the city’s urban style over the last decade; and Azadeh Shladovsky, who straddles interiors, architecture, art and furniture design and is actively wooing the art and design community with her deeply creative and exquisutely crafted works.

Together we’ll talk Jeff Koon’s $25 million hanging train, what will make fashion week work in LA and so much more. We hope to answer the question: Revolution? If so, why now and what will it look like? This is one you won’t want to miss. See you there!
