dld_image1Spring is in the air, and once again it’s time to celebrate LEGENDS – the most anticipated design event in the country. A 3-day celebration of design hosted by the La Cienega Design Quarter (LCDQ) that brings together thousands of VIPs and tastemakers from the worlds of interior design, decor, art, fashion and architecture, LEGENDS traditionally features receptions, keynote panel discussions, cocktail parties, book signings, personal appearances and many other social activities.

Every year LEGENDS embraces an overarching theme that is expressed in the windows of LCDQ member shops and galleries. The theme for the 8th annual LEGENDS 2016 event is “One of a Kind”, and will run from Tuesday, May 3, to Thursday, May 5.

LEGENDS continuously reminds us how fortunate we are in the Los Angeles community to have such a wealth of talent and creativity that continues to inspire all of us in our daily lives. The annual LEGENDS event provides an opportunity to showcase the talent of some of our community’s leading designers in LCDQ member windows.

dld_image3Donna Livingston had the pleasure of participating in the LEGENDS event in 2011 where she designed a showroom window that paid tribute to the incredible Kees van Dongen. A designer since 1979, Donna Livingston’s career quickly excelled from designing model homes to speaking across Japan about interior design, a fledgling industry there, at the time. She returned with an appreciation for Japan’s aesthetic beauty that continues to inspire her work today. Livingston’s signature mixing of European, Asian and Contemporary styles has made her one of the top designers in the country. Her projects include dramatic coastal penthouses, luxurious Aspen retreats and traditional Beverly Hills estates.

This year’s LEGENDS event features an impressive lineup of designers and keynote speakers, as well as panel discussions on topics including personal identity, social media, and cultural diversity.
