Jamie Drake Announced as 2nd BOLD Master Award Recipient
The BOLD Summit, a business conference for principal designers, has announced that acclaimed designer and entrepreneur Jamie Drake, has been selected as a BOLD Master Award recipient joining the 2017 BOLD Summit lineup.
Drake is the second of three BOLD Master Award winners and will present to fellow principal designers at the upcoming conference, Sept. 25-27, at the Auditorium Theater in downtown Chicago.
Drake, co-principal of Drake/Anderson has more than 30 years of interior design expertise and is lauded as one of the most distinguished designers today. He is regarded as a modernist combining a daring color and style approach with an expansive comprehension of design from past and present.
Drake focuses on crafting fashionable spaces that remain personal to each client. His distinct, one-of-a-kind sense of style has been sought after by an array of high-end clientele including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and recording artist Madonna.
Julia Molloy, owner of the BOLD Summit and Julia Molloy Consulting said, “It’s an honor to introduce Jamie Drake as a BOLD Master Award recipient and presenter this year. Drake’s unique design approach and unmistakable flair is inspiring to so many who have had the pleasure of experiencing his work.”
“He will be opening up his wisdom and expertise in an open forum Q&A as well as hosting an intimate round table discussion at BOLD. I am quite certain this rare experience will be unforgettable and awe-inspiring,” Molloy continued.
Drake has been on Architectural Digest’s prestigious AD100 list of top architects and designers for several years, including the new 2017 list. He is also a member of Elle Décor’s distinguished A-List since 2012. He was honored with Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars Award for Interior Design, named a Master Class designer by House Beautiful, and was inducted into Interior Design magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2003.
