Structures & Style 2011

"We don’t really define our work as artistic practice. I think that might limit our ambitions to have a very diverse practice involved with many scales and types of projects. It just so happens that we’ve been doing a lot of fashion-related projects lately but we have a lot broader ambitions to work on more public and cultural projects."

I've been invited to attend an event this Saturday that I'm extremely thrilled to attend. "Now in its third year, the tour has previously showcased noteworthy hotels and restaurants throughout the City. This year's tour will feature the City's most inspired fashion retailers, many of which are housed in stunning and unique spaces. " Perhaps I'll see you there? Leong & Leong melted my mind with some of their work awhile back, so this will be a joy to hear all about their LA project.. For anyone interested in pattern, textures, and the ever morphing relationship between fashion and interior design, this is the place to be.... Thanks Structures & Style for organizing these events here in Los Angeles... - David John
