Despite relocating to L.A. from Australia just three short years ago, I could not feel more at home. The MyDomaine family welcomed me with open arms and the Los Angeles design scene quickly followed with its ongoing support. This city is a thriving mecca of inspiring design talent who are cultivating a diverse and vibrant creative culture. So with the onset of another year, Chairishreached out to celebrate this group of design leaders with a special lunch (and personalized "Viva La Vintage" bomber jackets) that I co-hosted with the company's co-founder Anna Brockway at the quaint Spartina restaurant on Melrose.
Can you think of a better way to kick off the New Year? Brockway thinks not. "My 2018 promise to myself was to say thank you more often," she explained over lunch. "This luncheon was a way to thank important L.A. designers, influencers, and tastemakers who have helped make Chairish successful, especially Sacha Strebe of MyDomaine, who has provided us endless creative inspiration, wise advice, and has simply been a fantastic partner in crime to the Chairish brand."
To keep the celebratory theme alive, Chairish also asked me to curate all my favorite vintage pieces and of course, I chose the monochromatic theme to align with the all-black aesthetic of my wardrobe. You can see all the monochromatic selects at Chairish, further showcasing the high impact of a single shade. Step inside our beautiful luncheon and celebrate design with us. Here's to an exciting 2018.
