Design & Fashion: A Perfect Pairing

This morning I had the opportunity to preview the Charleston Symphony Orchestra League Designer Show House. The Show House is a pop up design exhibition featuring some of the top local and national interior designers. Set inside a Greek Revival on Society Street, the house itself is full of original moldings, plaster ceilings, and fireplaces. Keeping the building’s historical framework in mind, the designers have brought new life into the space. Additionally, in celebration of Charleston Fashion Week this week, each designer collaborated with a Charleston-based fashion designer on an outfit pairing.

Dress to Room pairing: Domain Interiors & Gramercy Atelier

I fell in love with the house’s “Music Room,” a pairing between Domain Interiors and Gramercy Atelier. The room was filled with beautifully hand-painted blue and white walls, lacquered furniture, a contemporary chandelier & luxurious throw pillows. Its fashion counterpart, a jacket by Gramercy Atelier, was designed with the room in mind. This showstopper jacket is made from La Maison Pierre Frey fabrics that correspond with the bright colored accent pillows on the sofa. Completely custom and made in the USA, it was actually designed and created within 24 hours- arriving minutes before the Show House opening!

A perfect pairing!

This room is the epitome of mixed media; it communicates how art, fashion, and design can work together (and within a historic space!). An absolute must-see, this room, along with the rest of the CSOL Designer Show House, will be open to the public until April 15. Check it out for yourself- 36 Society Street, Charleston, SC 29401!
