It’s almost here…With LEGENDS (May 9-11) fast approaching…we wanted to introduce you to our Ambassadors (some returning and some new) to hear what they’re looking forward to this year, some of their favorite LCDQ spots, and get a sneak peek into their new projects.

Anthony D'Argenzio


The founder and creative force behind a NYC-based design/style collective specializing in all things visual, D’Argenzio and his team have collaborated with West Elm, Cartier, and Design*Sponge to name a few.

“LEGENDS is the place to be…my favorite design even in America,” says D’Argenzio. “The excitement and energy in the Quarter is beyond contagious.”

What’s he most looking forward to this year? “When I’m not drooling over the dreamy installations, I'll be taking cocktail breaks, taking endless pics, and networking with fellow design lovers,” he says.

Zio + Sons is opening their first Creative Studio in upstate NY called This Old Hudson. To articulate this mix of photo studio, rentable lodging, and more, D’Argenzio will be “forging new relationships with brands and editors that understand how to portray our visual story.”

His fave LCDQ-adjacent spots include:


Gracias Madre

“Other than their dreamy blue & white interiors, they make a mean Mezcal Margarita and serve a meatless organic menu.”
8905 Melrose Place

Sunset Tower Hotel

“Old Hollywood at its best. I love this historic gem and a little R&R at their rooftop pool, overlooking beautiful Los Angeles.”
8463 Melrose Place


“I love a good photowalk. There's nothing like a little house-staking in the cute neighborhood around the quarter.”
