This afternoon, Architectural Digest editor in chief Margaret Russell and publisher and chief revenue officer Giulio Capua announced that the magazine is canceling its annual cocktail party at this High Point Market, as an expression of its stance against the recently passed House Bill 2.

Russell and Capua said in a statement, “The Architectural Digest team supports the design industry and will attend the upcoming High Point market, but we have decided to cancel our annual spring market cocktail party on Sunday, April 17, as a celebration no longer feels appropriate given the discriminatory law North Carolina passed last week. We are firmly dedicated to the American principle of equal rights for all regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race or religion, and we have made a donation to the Human Rights Campaign in support of their extraordinary work to protect these basic civil rights for everyone, everywhere.”
