Making it Special
Thursday, October 11 – 3:00 PM
Vaughan Designs, Suite 1511 

With luxury goods and services available 24 hours a day, literally at everyone’s fingertips, how do designers continue to craft distinctive, personal, and luxurious standout spaces? Dering Hall’s Chairman, Editorial and Strategic Initiatives, Michael Boodro is joined by top designers, Amy Lau, Glenn Gissler and Bennett Leifer – all of whom work in a variety of styles and idioms – to address the challenges and rewards of designing in an all-access era. The group will discuss how to navigate the digital influence on our industry where the elusively unusual and exclusively unseen are becoming ever more accessible, global goods are available around nearly every corner, and internet-savvy clients come to believe they know as much as their designers.
