Fashitecture // The Festival Launch, York // Part two

The Nest, situated in Sheffield, is an interior store brimming with quality, individuality and most importantly great contemporary design. Therefore it seems only fitting that they should sponsor the launch of Love Architecture Festival. The Nest sources and provides original designs and products from all over the world, they do the hard work for us.  We just have to visit their website and that beautiful Poltrona Frau chair which started it life in Italy will end up in our humble Yorkshire living rooms.

The staff were equally as stylish…

006The Nest is big on those all important details and finishing touches. It seems Tom is too, as he revealed that the tie pin is what he loves most about his Next shirt. Ashlee is wearing a beautiful vintage dress, a hand me down from her sister,Toni, who also works for The Nest.

009I loved Toni’s 70’s vintage dress (ASOS Marketplace) and necklace from Made.co.uk, her hairstyle was the perfect accessory to the look. Toni’s career at The Nest started as a Saturday job but Christian Hawley must have great eye for talent as well as furniture, as she has now become the marketing and communications manager for the brand. Chris from the warehouse department, was dressed head to toe in Zara. Not simply because it’s a great brand but because he use to work for them and as anyone who’s worked in retail knows, the staff discount is a great perk! I thought Chris’ transportation from fashion to interior design shows the similarities and transferable aspects of both disciplines. These careers both demand an ability to visualise and create.
