Foreston Trends hires product designer Williams
June 28, 2007,
Long Beach, Calif. -- Table linens, kitchen textiles and shower curtains supplier Foreston Trends has appointed Wendy Williams its product designer, reporting to David Alden, president.
Williams comes from both the home furnishings and apparel. Most recently she was art director for textiles design studio Design Printsiples. Earlier, she worked many years as an apparel designer in the women’s, men’s and swimwear industries.
The company said it added the designer position because of "a high demand from retail for design, textures, and color. Stores want suppliers to step up with newness and not just respond to their fashion forecast."
Foreston Trends is a sister company of Brentwood Originals, one of the country's largest decorative pillow suppliers.
