How Emerging Designers Win at Summer

Remember those “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” essays we had to write back in the day? We prompted eleven emerging and advanced designers from SPACE to get a jump on theirs.

Summer menu: Juicy tomatoes with good olive oil (you can’t beat that) and a glass of natural red wine from Corsica or a daiquiri, the Cuban way—so fresh.

 

ASHLEY WILLIAMS

Summer anthem: I had a really good summer the year “I’m On One” by DJ Khaled came out and it was playing everywhere. So probably that because when I listen to it, I remember that summer.

Summer menu: A Shirley Temple is nonalcoholic but still great.
