Vern Yip at the Gibbes

Art + Design @ The Gibbes! The Art of Design Luncheon Presented by the Women's Council featured speaker Vern Yip. Known for his TLC's Trading Spaces, NBC's Home Intervention and HGTV's most recognizable designer, Vern shared his background, travel experiences and personal style. My personal favorite tidbit were the measurements that translate to ease of living. His linens and patterns graced the tables of the luncheon.

Gibbes: Art of Design

The 2016 Art of Design, hosted by the Gibbes Museum's Women's Council, provided a wealth of information and sparkle with jewelry historian and designer, Andrew Prince. His tales shared not only the history of the jewelry itself but also the significance of jewelry within art. Similar to Jane Austen’s style of creating a family’s financial picture by telling us how many sheep, cows, goats and horses, the jewelry told it’s own tale of wealth and social standing. Mr. Prince hosted a trunk show of his jewelry and displayed several of the original jewels worn by the ladies of Downton Abbey.
