Caplan Miller’s FXD Design Inspiration

October 22, 2014

Fashion X Dallas has partnered?Caplan Miller Events?to produce Fashion X Dallas. Based out of Austin, Caplan Miller?produces, designs and executes event experiences for corporate, private and non-profit clients.?Founder, Courtney Caplan, talked with us a little about her?inspiration for Fashion X Dallas’s event design.

Where did you find inspiration for the Fashion X Dallas event design? What can guests expect the event space to feel like?

The Greek Key pattern has been used throughout history and is said to have many meanings. It symbolizes creative energy and that is what the world of fashion is all about. What better inspiration for our event design?

What’s your favorite piece of furniture or decor being used at Fashion X Dallas?

We are very fortunate to host FXD in our incredible venue, F.I.G. The space is clean and modern and provides the perfect setting for 3 exciting nights of fashion.?Enhancing the space with florals from Todd Events and lounges created by Roche Bobois doesn’t hurt either!

Are there any new trends in design/decoration that you are especially excited about this season?

I am excited that luxury and sophistication are back. Party hosts are looking to wine and dine their guests in beautiful environments. The seated dinner is back with highly designed table settings.

How do you make each event special and unique when planning many at a time?

It is important that we understand our clients and the goals they have for their events, but it’s equally important that we stay up to date on trends in the worlds of fashion, interior design, and culinary arts. Trends in these industries are where we find inspiration. We strive to create event experiences that are memorable for our clients and their guests. In a world where technology runs our daily lives, I feel lucky to plan events where face to face interaction and connection with others is what its all about.

What advice would you give to anyone interested in pursuing a career in event planning?

Don’t do it. We’re all crazy!
