For years, the annual Design Symposium at Longue Vue has celebrated a legacy of design and giving, first exemplified by founders Edith and Edgar Stern and their landscape and interior design partner, Ellen Biddle Shipman. The event continues this legacy by bringing together today’s mission-driven institution with cutting-edge practitioners in a range of design fields.

2023 featured speakers:

Pedram Pasha Taheri, one of today’s leading custom fashion designers and a graduate of LSU’s School of Interior Design.

Mary Palmer Dargan, whose signature landscape designs are inspired by “nourishing, flourishing home utopias.”
