INTERNATIONAL EVOLUTION: YVONNE COLACION GOES GLOBAL…AGAIN! Southern California-based designer Yvonne Colacion is such a globetrotter nowadays, that when she lands somewhere, it becomes an opportunity to hear from the lady herself. This Thursday, May 3, 2012, Colacion is a keynote speaker (along with Kirk Nix of KNA Design) at the program “Luxury by Land and by Sea” (moderated by celebrated architect and writer Michael Webb!) at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood where she and Nix will share their experiences on working abroad on some very prestigious projects.
When she started her own firm — Colacion Studio — it was the perfect vehicle to continue creating interiors for residential projects, luxury villas, super yachts and corporate facilities around the world — similar to what she had done on an international level (minus the 155-foot-long M/Y 360 yacht that she just completed!) during her tenures as vice president of corporate interiors at RTKL and as a senior associate at Gensler.
