The last designer enclave on Michael Miller Island was the one that created perhaps the most buzz at Market, since it marks such a departure for Michael Miller. Trenna Travis‘ Bekko marks their entrée into home decor fabrics. Bekko’s basecloth is a lovely cotton sateen that hits that sweet spota — it’s intended for light home decor like pillows, window dressings, kitchen and tabletop textiles, yet it’s light enough for quilting, apparel (like jackets, skirts), and all manner of crafts. Bekko feels preppy, yet fresh — easy, basic geometrics (and solids) in a palette of brights and neutrals.
Trenna Travis is a St. Louis-based designer, photographer, and stylist. Kathy Miller said she’s a dynamo who received the samples, sewed up all her projects, styled the sets and photographed the projects, and brought the booth together in the space of a couple weeks. Amazing!
