The Pacific Design Center Fall Market—October 8, from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the center’s West Hollywood location—will feature programs that encapsulate this year’s theme, “Global Glamour.” Designers, including Elliott Barnes, Patrick Frey, Jane Hallworth, Ashley Hicks, Martha Kirszenbaum, Nicolas Libert, Emmanuel Renoird, Hutton Wilkinson and Vicente Wolf, will participate along with notable editors, among them Dan Rubinstein, home and design editor at Departures magazine and The Hollywood Reporter’s contributing culture editor, Degen Pener.
“As the melding global market continues to transform and fuel creativity across geographic borders, PDC’s Fall Market focuses its lens on the world’s most fascinating destinations and how their distinct social, cultural and environmental references shape the design process,” said Jeff Sampson, PDC’s director of marketing. “In addition to unveiling significant new resources that position the PDC as an international leader for luxury goods, our Fall Market keynotes present foremost opinion-makers, providing designers with meaningful, business-building and creative insights to improve professional success.”
In the morning keynote, designers Hallworth, Hicks and Wolf, moderated by Rubinstein, will discuss global style hubs, while Pener will moderate the afternoon keynote, a conversation with Barnes, Frey, Libert and other designers on the links between Paris and Los Angeles. In the closing program, author-designer Wilkinson will introduce his new novel, which delves into the relationship between Elsie de Wolfe and Tony Duquette.
The Fall Market will also feature 75-plus new line introductions, parties and open houses, with new and expanded resources taking over 20,000 square feet. New additions include the Moderne-inspired Cygal Art Deco, Samuel and Sons' new showroom, James Perse's expanded space, and Innovations' newly reimagined showroom, among others.
