David’s Bridal Is Betting On 3-D Tech To Get More Brides To Say Yes To The Dress

Emilee Geist

David’s Bridal is taking its digital love affair to the next level with technology that lets brides-to-be view dresses online in 3-D detail, and use augmented reality to virtually bring a gown-wearing mannequin into their living rooms.

David’s, which emerged from bankruptcy 20 months ago but is still burdened with debt, is on a mission to become a thoroughly modern, millennial-friendly wedding retailer that combines the best an online experience can offer, with the old-fashioned, bride-friendly, in-person services that a chain of 300 stores can provide.

Its online transformation has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic that shifted shoppers away from stores. While its stores have reopened, David’s, like other retailers, has continued to see online sales surge.

Last week David’s began showing off its

Feng Shui Lessons From a Design Master Who Has Your Back

Emilee Geist

This article is part of our latest Design special report, which is about taking creative leaps in challenging times.

I was clearly in over my head.

When I signed up for an online course in feng shui, an ancient Chinese practice of using design to enhance health and prosperity, I somehow missed the part about its being a “master” class. My fellow students included a graduate of a three-year program on the subject and three women whose homes already had been feng shui-ed by our instructor, Judith Wendell, the founder of Sacred Currents, a Manhattan-based consulting firm.

I, meanwhile, was a complete novice. And I was still struggling with the basics — including how to place the bagua, a template that is used to divide a space into nine zones — while my peers were ticking off “the producing order” of the five elements.

But I wasn’t the

How To Build A Recycled Plastic Skateboard? Designer Giving Away Plans For Free

Emilee Geist

Plastic bags, bottle caps and CD cases, with a little work, can be the ingredients for making a skateboard deck. You have to add the trucks and wheels later on, and designer Jason Knight would appreciate a buck or two toward putting the plans together.

Knight, part of the Precious Plastic collective, launched a Kickstarter campaign today to make a download kit that will later be shared online, for free.

The funds generated by the campaign will go toward resources needed to make the kit and an initial batch of decks, according to the Kickstarter page. Anything extra beyond a campaign goal of about 40,000 pounds ($51,000 U.S.) will go to run free educational workshops, where people can make their own deck, to increase global awareness about the possibilities of plastic recycling.

Knight, the

Why Selecting The Right Chairs And Tables For Your Brand Is A Big Deal

They say people have already formed an opinion of you within seven seconds of first meeting you. They look at your clothes, your hair, maybe your watch or your shoes, all in the span of just a few seconds. So without having to say much more than a word or two, these strangers have already crafted a full story of who you are in their minds.

Well, the same applies to your business. Your logo, the colors you have picked for your website or letterheads, your app and your business cards all tell consumers who your company is and what it stands for. Once again, this all happens within a matter of seconds.

This makes your business space (online or physical) incredibly important. Just like how people will immediately begin to judge your outfit, consumers

LACMA’s redesign doesn’t deserve this much carping

LACMA’s Michael Govan is without question one of the shrewdest museum leaders in the world, and at his direction we are about to get an entirely new Los Angeles County Museum of Art, designed by Peter Zumthor, one of the world’s great architects. So why do their plans have so many Angelenos’ cultural knickers in such a twist?

Over the past few years, with social media commenters in high dudgeon, a slew of art and architectural critics, including The Times’ Christopher Knight, have lobbed repeated salvos at the redesign. (Knight’s 2019 articles won him a Pulitzer Prize in May.) The angst has only heightened with the wrecking-ball demolition of the former museum buildings taking place along Wilshire Boulevard since April.

Perhaps the carping is simply part of the
