Design District Studio – Open House
Last night I did something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, I went to the Design District Studio at 1826 Government Street. I wanted to check it out but I admit I wasn’t quite sure what to expect ….so I went with an open heart and the first smiling face I encountered was that of the beautiful and friendly Danisha Drury; one of the owners along with her business partner Donna Morrison. I talked with Danisha about the selection of fabrics (of course fabric freak) they carry and the resources the studio offers for local designers…like me!…maybe like you too?
You might recall that I posted awhile back about a new Victoria based design show featuring Danisha and another local designer; Amy McGeachy. Clearly these ladies have a lot going on but I was impressed that they opened the studio doors to everyone and were so nice to talk to. Meeting new industry people is sometimes tough and competitive but this was a breeze. Victoria is SOOO Nice!
I’m going to try to take advantage of some of the resources and networking opportunities they have so I can be an even better designer and provide an even better level of service. Congratulations Design District Studio! You’ve successfully created a stylish destination and a valuable resource for the Victoria Design Community!
Don’t forget about the Home Show this weekend peeps! Click here for the deets.
