BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.-Marimekko has formed an alliance with Dwell on Design, a design event curated by the editors of Dwell magazine.
The partnership will begin with a cocktail party at the design firm’s West Coast flagship store and showroom here on June 20. The evening will feature a presentation by Amanda Dameron, Dwell’s editor-in-chief, on Marimekko’s role in making avant-garde design important in fashion and home decor since the 1950.
Marimekko fabrics will also be spotlighted at the Designer Lounge at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where Dwell on Design will take place from June 21-23. Lynn Shanahan, president of Marimekko North America, said, “I can’t think of a better way to showcase the continuing impact Marimekko provides the worlds of home decor and fashion design.”
