This is a unique tour of B.Viz Design New Orleans Atelier on Magazine Street. For nearly 30 years, owner Rebecca “Becky” Vizard and her team have created exquisite pillows using fragments of up-cycled antique textiles. Becky will talk about textile history, the textile business, and, how an early childhood fascination with textiles eventually led her to create pillows from her growing personal collection of rare textiles. She has sold her pillows to designers such as Neiman Marcus, and her pillows have graced the covers of national publications such as House Beautiful, Veranda, Elle Décor, Traditional Home and Architectural Digest. She is also the author of the book, Once Upon a Pillow. The tour will also include a visit to Sue Sartor, a dress shop on Magazine Street. Sue's work includes handmade dresses from artisan textiles. She will talk about the ancient art of Block Printing in India. The tour includes lunch at a local restaurant. Following lunch, guests will tour the Garden District.
