2014 marks the 21st year for Design Inspirations, a fundraiser supported jointly by volunteers from the Fort Worth Alumnae Clubs of Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi. Gill Children’s Services, Inc. and Communities in Schools of Greater Tarrant County 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 5th or while enjoying a presentation from our guest speaker and lunch on Thursday, March 6th.
We are happy to announce this year’s speaker, Jan Showers (www.janshowers.com). Jan Showers is the founder and president of a Dallas based influential interior design firm specializing in both residential and commercial commissions, as well as custom product and furnishings.

At the Preview Party, you will be among the FIRST to catch a glimpse of the inspiring, creative, beautiful tables while enjoying a scrumptious dinner and refreshments. Come be inspired and entertained with fun music and plenty of time to chat with friends and the designers themselves! Wednesday, March 5h, 7-9pm at Ridglea Country Club.
Understated glamour, the combination of a variety of periods and styles and the creation of comfortable spaces are the foundation of Jan Showers’ style.

In early 2000, Showers decided to make custom pieces she had been designing for her clients available to showrooms across the United States, thus creating The Jan Showers Collection. The Collection is available through showrooms in Dallas, Dania, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Atlanta.
