LA Design Festival 2019

by Paulette Ely

This weekend marks the ninth annual LA Design Festival, and attendance is mandatory to all animals of art. The Row in DTLA becomes home to some of the most immersive and impeccable installations ranging from architecture to fashion and even to interpersonal conversations. There is no denying that the Los Angeles design scene has become iconic in both its original and contemporary flairs. This festival gives space to all genre’s of artistic design and gives voices to each creator in between the lines.

LA Design Fest is especially notable this year as the narrative is open wide to women in the industry, an important tale today. Panels include women in design and pieces are displayed to prove that professionalism sees no genre. That’s not all, as the 2019 ICON award recipient is creative queen, Elena Manferdini. This award recognizes iconic women who have made Los Angeles a more open, diverse and overall dope place with their impacts on art, architecture and intellectual achievement. Be sure to read all about Elena’s work and catch the Future of Women x Tartine, Domino, LA Design Festival Panel for a morning of delicious breakfast over crucial conversation about the work on women in the vast design world.
