You’re Invited to a Special UCLA Extension ARC-ID Student Presentation at Kneedler-Fauchere this Friday

March 21, 2012

In the event that you might not have seen the notice that was in our ASID UCLA Extension Student Chapter newsletter on Wednesday, Rocky La Fleur and Kneedler-Fauchere have graciously invited UCLA Extension ARC-ID students into their sensational PDC showroom this Friday afternoon at 2:00PM for a special Student Presentation at WestWeek by the people from Jim Thompson Thai Silks.

Only UCLA Extension design students have been invited to attend this informative and fun-filled presentation. As WestWeek is now only officially held on Wed. & Thurs. with no official Student Day activities, this was a last minute decision to invite our student body. They have even asked many of their other manufacturers to come back into the showroom on Friday afternoon to be there to show our UCLA Extension students all of their furniture, fabric and lighting lines to avail themselves to answer any questions you might have.

I hope that we can make a proper presence at this wonderful event which I know that you will all enjoy.  I urge everybody to please RSVP back to me in the affirmative at your earliest convenience so that I can let Rocky know how many people we expect, so they may properly plan their refreshment menu.  I would very much appreciate your taking the time to do this and also to talk this up with your friends, classmates and fellow students ASAP, as time is of the essence!

We are doing this for your sake in an effort to further include you in WestWeek festivities. Please take advantage of this opportunity. Thank you!

Special Invitation to Kneedler Fauchere for Students at WestWeek!
Friday, March 23, 2:00-3:00pm
Pacific Design Center
Kneedler Fauchere, Suite B600
8687 Melrose Avenue
Los Angeles, California 90069

Open your eyes to intense color.  Hear the swoosh of world-class silk. Jim Thompson masterfully creates each of its fabrics by blending the unique influence of Thailand’s beauty, people and handwoven traditions. Join this luxury textile house’s tour guide, Tim Johnson, on a virtual and sensory journey to truly know and savor Thai silk.

Feel free to come early and stay late to peruse the showroom filled with new items and fresh displays for WestWeek at Kneedler Fauchere!  This showroom has generously offered to host an incredible student presentation on a wonderfully informative history of silk from cocoon to final luxurious project. A small, causal reception will follow as well as allow time for you to take in the beautiful sights from the showroom.

As students, this event is not to be missed as the experience of learning about textiles and specific product information in the showroom can be incredibly informative and educational, helping to expose you to new things or be of even further assistance in your design work if you are already working for a firm and using the showroom.  All in all, this exquisite event is not to be missed!

Please RSVP to Shepard Vineburg at shepardv@charter.net.  Thanks, and we can’t wait to see you there!
