Amy Astley, Editor-in-Chief of Architectural Digest, and James Seuss, CEO of The Rug Company, co-hosted the New York launch of Christopher Kane’s inaugural rug collection. Top interior and fashion designers, as well as industry professionals, came together to celebrate the new runway-inspired collection with cocktails and canapés, at The Rug Company’s Uptown Showroom.

The best of British fashion came together in the big apple to toast the collection with Amy Astley. Left: Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane, Erdem Moralioglu. Right: Amy Astley with Christopher Kane.

For the London launch, our Chelsea showroom flung open its doors to host a talk between The Rug Company’s founder Christopher Sharp and the designer. Attended by the fashion and design cognoscenti, the evening began with cocktails and canapés and was followed by a conversation between the two Christopher’s about how the collection came about and the differences between designing for fashion and interiors.

Meanwhile, last month in Dallas thirty five guests attended a special dinner and evening in our Dallas showroom with Kane, to celebrate his break into the world of interiors.
