IDS15 Presents: Wanda Jelmini, International Guest of Honour and Creative Director, T&J Vestor, MissoniHome

Toronto, Canada

Interior Design Show (IDS)

Toronto, Canada, 2014-09-02 -  The Interior Design Show is pleased to welcome Missoni to its 2015 show with a never-before-seen retrospective. Celebrating the iconic brand’s 60th anniversary, the installation will be brought to life by International Guest of Honour, Creative Director of T&J Vestor, MissoniHome, Wanda Jelmini

 “Each year, we aim to present the highest calibre of design at IDS. Missoni is a superpower in the creative world, rich in history and collaborations,” explains Judy Merry, Vice President of Informa Canada. “We’re looking forward to hearing Wanda’s insight on its global success.” 

Internationally renowned, MissoniHome – a partnership with leading Italian manufacturer, T&J Vestor – evokes Rosita Missoni’s philosophy to living:

“The home is alive. It’s constantly evolving and never finished… Furnishing my way means creating a habitat that's ordered yet informal, versatile and welcoming.”

The colourful line of indoor and outdoor furnishings, textiles, and décor is characterized by unusual fabrics, whimsical prints, and simple shapes, designed for sophisticated, artful settings. 

Born niece to Rosita in Milan, Jelmini has breathed the family business for 31 years, working in fashion and home departments since she was a student. With a comprehensive, 360 degree perspective, she leads research and development, and the creative process, finding inspiration everywhere around her:

“I absolutely adore what I do but I’m also a lover of life; I love to pick mushrooms, I love to grow flowers, I love to paint, I love music, I love friends, I love sports, I love my family and I love working… Inspiration can be captured at any and every moment. We take out forms, shapes and colours and start by experimenting with how they could be applied in a new way…” 

Mark your calendars: Jelmini shares more on her design philosophy at Canada’s top meeting place for design professionals, IDS15 Trade Day, on Friday, January 23, 2015.
