Countdown to LEGENDS 2015: Windows Preview
The week of LEGENDS is here, and the windows of the La Cienega Design Quarter – curated on the theme of “Where Muses Dwell” – will be fully unveiled tonight, when the official LEGENDS festivities begin with the Gala.
Each year, LEGENDS embraces an overarching theme that is expressed in the LCDQ showroom and shop window displays. For the 7th annual Legends of La Cienega event, a record 67 LCDQ windows were transformed on the theme of Where Muses Dwell. Each of the 61 esteemed designers who were selected created vignettes to bring their muses to life, whether a person, place, period in time or
an object. (For a complete list of 2015 window designers, visit http://lcdqla.com/legends-2015-window-designers).
We took a peek at some of the windows and invite the reader to visit the La Cienega Design Quarter and take a stroll through the epicenter of design on the West Coast.
