Ralph Lauren + SB Umbrella @ NYFW

Central Park’s Bethesda Terrace was transformed into a candlelit wonderland to pay homage to fashion icon Ralph Lauren’s 50 years in the industry. An arrangement of 62 classic Santa Barbara umbrellas lined the perimeter providing a private and picturesque landscape to shelter guests as they dined, following an epic runway show featuring 50 years of Ralph Lauren fashions. The inspiration for the intimate setting in the heart of New York City was Mr. Lauren’s own Ralph’s restaurant in Paris.


Our largest size (16′ octagon) umbrella in a crisp Whitecap canopy outfitted with classic details including the original wood hub and brass open close system and fittings, was produced with great care and pride. Our hospitality division delivered a larger-than-life custom order for this iconic fashion designer’s landmark event.

We salute Mr. Lauren and his contribution to American fashion, style, and taste. At Santa Barbara Designs we share the same design aesthetic.
