This week we are featuring Meriah Schultz on our blog, she is a beloved member of the Dizon Inc. family as producer and friend. We sat down with Meriah and asked her a few questions about design, fashion and music. Scroll down to see the interview and learn more about some of her latest projects.

Meriah 4

What’s your favorite thing about working fashion week?
The Dizon Inc. wrap party!

What inspires you in your own life or work?
Ideas that come from other industries like art, science, and literature. I like confluences and mash-ups of thoughts or imagery that come together to create something new and exciting.

What are 3 artists (or designers) you are feeling/ following right now?
Lygia Clark, Rochelle Goldberg, Dries Van Noten (always)

What are you working on right now?
I’m doing some creative direction for Bensen furniture and also making a newspaper for complexgeometries with my own photographs (see Meriah’s Photography Tumblr here). In my spare time: I am learning beekeeping, and have an architectural project that I plan on doing with the bees next year!

What are you reading now (books/Magazines)?
Apartamento magazine, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. LeGuin, and The Hare with the Amber Eyes by Edward de Waal

What are the 3 most played songs/albums on your iTunes?
Dance Yrslf Clean by LCD Soundsystem, One Million Lovers by the Growlers, Cheree by Suicide

What are you watching right now?
Revisiting all of Ingmar Bergman. I am especially loving Persona right now.

List 3 go to items you can’t live without:
My phone (I hate it, but it’s true), bright lipstick, and my bicycle.

Where is your favorite place in the city to eat?
Souen if I’m feeling healthy, Il Buco if I’m not

List 3 fashion week essentials:
Pens, the girls at Dizon, and a sense of humour!

Does fashion have a place in your life out side of work? If so, in what way?
Of course. I love seeing how the trends we see during NYFW penetrate culture and can actually change it. EVERYONE is affected by these shows whether they like it or not. I also LOVE clothes, so that helps!

InForm Interiors
Meriah 6
Inform Interiors is a retail store that was started by my family 51 years ago with the goal of bringing contemporary European design to the Canadian market. It is a really unique store that almost feels like a museum. We also have a beautiful rooftop, which is where I keep my bees!

Urban Beekeeping
Meriah 2

Meriah 3  Meriah 1
I got my first hive earlier this Spring, and realized quite quickly that there was a potential to beautify the hive itself and make it more architectural. So, I am working with a group of architects and designers to design functional, but architecturally interesting hives. As urban beekeeping becomes more popular, it seems like a great opportunity to integrate design into this beautiful natural process. 

Bensen
Meriah 5
Bensen is a Canadian furniture manufacturer that was started by my stepfather, Niels Bendtsen. All designs and products are made here in downtown Vancouver. I have been working with them to do creative direction and color selections for their various visual and print presentations.

DRIES5

2004 was a special year for the Belgian designer Dries van Noten, it was the year he designed his 50th women’s collection and launched a book commemorating his career. Barneys, being one of the first stores in New York City to carry his line, decided to throw a party in honor of Mr. van Noten and launch his book in the United States. The event took place at Barneys on November 4th, working closely with Julie Gilhart and Simon Doonan, and produced by Dizon Inc.

As you entered the 4th floor of Barney’s, the room was covered in projections from past runway shows, layering over each other, wrapping the architecture and the racks of clothing. The center piece of the room consisted of a massive waterfall of images, pages from the book hung on strips of grosgrain ribbons, creating what now looks remarkably like a tumblr feed of images of his shows throughout the years. The strips, hung at different lengths, spanned a long narrow table displaying the books. Dries van Noten 01-50: A Golden Anniversary included photos of shows and invitations of every show since 1991, artfully chronicling his singular vision.

For more information about Dries van Noten and his close relationship with Barneys, have a look at this article.
