Happy New Year!

Wishing you a year ahead full of joy and, of course, many diversions. Thanks to all who joined us this past year; there’s much more in store for 2013 (if you have yet to make a DD, this makes an ideal New Year’s resolution). As always, suggestions welcome. And one of my own: if you haven’t yet been to Ann Hamilton’s the event of a thread at the Armory, go before it closes January 6. It’s an absolute gift.

In the meantime, here’s a look back at 2012 Design Diversions!

Hats at BGC / New York, NY / March
