I visited the Fortuny showroom earlier this week to talk with Mickey Riad ( creative director) about creating some of my creatures with Fortuny fabrics. I think it ‘s a fabulous idea and I’m looking forward to experimenting. We talked about bats and spiders and owls and maybe some new things inspired by the exquisite patterns and colors as well as the history.
Like the fabrics, the new showroom in the D and D building is almost overwhelmingly beautiful. I took a couple photos but they don’t do it justice – you can see much more here and on the Fortuny blog.
I’m excited about the possibilities and I’ll share progress photos with you when I get started.
P.S. – You’ll find the green bustled spider crawling among the bolts of glorious fabric in the first photo here.
