Janet A. Fernandez, President and Creative Director of Plumwich by J.A. Design Studio, made her way to New York from Miami today for the official launch of her Plumwich fabric line at Pierre Frey. We joined her at a special meet and greet to chat about her line.
What inspires these dynamic patterns? “Like any artist, I went back and looked at old fabrics and old patterns and old world inspiration, that’s the classical part of it,” Janet told us. “And then I elaborate on my own designs, so come and see it! I don’t really focus on making everything match. I just find it fun to do whatever comes to my mind, and that’s how it’s born.”
So, what can we expect to see from Plumwich? “Blue. I love the blues,” said Janet. “I am going to introduce reds as well now, but blue is a very good color. There is always a big interest for blue, and personally I love it.”
