The Evolution of Design

By danielle


On Wednesday, we attended the opening lecture of the D&D Building‘s Fall Market.  Called “The Evolution of Design,” the session focused on the impact of social media and included some top names in our industry including: Michael Bruno (1st Dibs); Jonathan Adler, (Jonathan Adler); James Andrew (What is James Wearing); Heather Clawson (Habitually Chic); Brad Ford (Design Therapy) and Julia Noran (The Editor at Large).  Sophie Donelson (also from The Editor at Large) did an amazing job as moderator – posing some questions that were on everyone’s mind.

We learned a lot about the panelists and how the internet has impacted their businesses/business models.  Did you know that…

– Jonathan Adler’s “biggest store” is his website?  He converted it into an e-commerce site four years ago and has never looked back.

– You can have access to James Andrew‘s outrageous style.  Well the paper doll version, at least!  Scott McBee created a 1st Anniversary Paper Doll collection of some of James’ most memorable outfits.

– Michael Bruno posts over 300 pages of editorial on 1st Dibs each month!  We like to call that an online magazine!

The event drew a packed house!
