Factio Magazine (our big sister print publication) has launched their winter 2008 issue! They focused on fashion and architecture in this issue and the writers did an amazing job at showcasing the similarity between architecture, interior design and fashion! Some of the highlights include an interview with Will Meyer, an architect behind the design of Oscar de la Renta boutiques worldwide and Chicago's Vertu, the architects behind Salon Blonde, Elite Models and Threadless boutique.
Our cover designer Agga B. also uses architecture in her designs! “I am truly inspired by the international architectural style of the 20s. It’s the architecture of clean space and beautifully balanced esthetics without pointless ornamentation,” and that is the basis for how she designs her collections. Jewelry is also inspired by this medium. Frank Gehry, the architect behind the exquisite Jay Pritzker Pavilion in our very own Millennium Park, designed a collection for Tiffany’s. You’ll also find some of the best recent fashion parties in this issue - from the opening of Marc Jacobs, a private party with Prada and the Children’s Ball. Enjoy this issue, we’ve enjoyed constructing it.
