The 25th Annual Design Inspiration Fundraiser

2018 marks the 25th year for Design Inspirations, a fundraiser supported jointly by volunteers from the Fort Worth Alumnae Associations of Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi. Gill Children’s Services, Inc. and Rivertree Academy have been chosen as this year’s charities.

The event itself features over 60 elegantly designed tables, creatively designed by local designers and individuals. Seeing the tables and the amazing character of each one will inspire you to do more with your own beautiful things at home! Guests may view the tables at the Preview Party on Wednesday, March 1st or while enjoying a presentation from our guest speaker and lunch on Thursday, March 2nd.

We are pleased to announce the 2018 Design Inspirations speaker, Marshall Watson. A New York-based interior designer Marshall Watson is best-known for creating classic, light-filled and elegant interiors with a modern sensibility. Since founding his design firm in 1986, Watson has sought to immerse himself in a range of dynamic projects, no two of which are exactly alike.

Internationally recognized, his projects have spanned the globe, from Cabo to Stockholm and across the United States. Winner of Traditional Home’s “Designer of the Year” award and featured on Luxe’s 2017 Gold List, Watson’s work has been featured in numerous publications including Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Veranda, Luxe, Cottages & Gardens and Traditional Home.

Watson has designed three best-selling furniture collections for Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman and is currently working on his fourth. He recently completed a line of couture outdoor carpets for Doris Leslie Blau. His current projects include a Napa Valley winery, an estate in St. Louis, a cottage in Northern Michigan and numerous places in and around New York City. Watson divides his time between his Upper West Side office and his home in East Hampton, and writes a bi-weekly column for the Southampton Press.
