Margo Graham, Design Director at MYB Textiles got in touch this week whilst exhibiting at Proposte 2016: ‘Blooming Your Home’. Proposte itself gives leading home textile manufacturers the opportunity to exhibit their collections at a show focused on fostering business and international contacts. It is the World Preview of Furnishing Fabrics and Curtains and is set in the historic grounds of Villa Erba in Cernobbio, northern Italy. Margo kindly offered to share some images with us, just miles from the fashion capital.
‘Our stand is Ala Lario 27, this is a new stand position this year for us. This is the first time we have had the beautiful 350cm drop windows that show our lace off in such a fantastic setting. The new stand position has introduced many new clients to our fabrics and returned lots of existing happy customers’.
The entire location is made up of a lake, a park, a historic villa and a conference centre in a truly stunning setting with immaculate views. In fact, it’s exactly where George Clooney shot the new Nespresso advert, yes it’s even A-list celeb worthy. Attended only by top European manufacturers and invite only guests, Proposte is a myriad of Europe’s finest textiles and intricate fabrics.
