Q&A: Miles Redd

miles redd

From Domino's December 2009 Issue

I’m a huge fan of Miles Redd‘s cheeky chic aesthetic–think Old Hollywood meets the South, with healthy splashes of color, sparkle and whimsy thrown in–so when my lovely aunt met Miles’s sister by chance on vacation, she kindly offered to introduce me to the designer himself. He couldn’t have been more gracious and charming. Read on for his thoughts on everything from set design to southern hospitality to the City’s best shopping spots.

JM: I’ve read a good bit about you over the years, but one thing I missed is that you came to New York for film school. I had no idea.

MR: Well, like all stories do, that one’s gotten a bit condensed over the years. It’s actually a little longer than that. I started out at Parsons studying fashion. Eventually, I transferred and graduated from NYU with a film degree. I sort of always excelled at set design, so that’s what I ended up pursuing in the beginning. I did a very brief stint with Francine LeFrak, who was a TV/movie producer for networks like Lifetime. She did The Pamela Harriman Story and other similar things. I moved on from there, but I’m very grateful for the time I spent there because it really taught me what I wanted.

JM: Any interest in returning to set design and breaking into movies  a lá Tom Ford?

MR: The short answer is yes. That’s definitely a fantasy.

A New Kind of CSA

CSA’s can be difficult–inconvenient pick-up spots, unpredictable assortments–not to mention expensive. But Arthur Warren, a close friend of Texan Erin Wasson, will simplify the process. His Prospectors Local is less CSA, more Fresh Direct from the farm. Beginning in the next week or so, Warren will post a list of what’s available each day. Just add the items you want to the shopping cart–he’ll have everything from meat and eggs to veg–and Warren will deliver them to you within 24 hours. For large orders, he’ll come directly to your door. For smaller orders, he’ll arrange a convenient drop-off at a partner location nearby. Learn more about Warren and his operation at, or contact

Billy Reid’s Second Annual Shindig

I’m fresh off of a 6-day beach vacation down on the coast of South Carolina (Litchfield, then Charleston), so I’m feeling pretty relaxed and content with my summer so far. But Billy Reid’s Shindig, held the first weekend in June for a group of friends, family and media folk, looks like the kind of summertime fun I need more of in my life (translation: Can I get an invite next year? Puh-lease?!). Check out the photos on Mister Mort’s blog. And before you even ask, No, I don’t know if that’s Mark Sanchez, but it sure does look like him.
