say hi to_ aims to support and promotes design and architecture culture through publishing, exhibitions, experiences, masterclasses, and bespoke brand partnerships. We not only want to showcase some of the most inspiring creative contemporaries we come across during our travels but also to help nurture the community with access to affordable alternative education options for running their creative businesses.
Say hi to_ was started in 2014 by Kristen de La Vallière, a design curator, writer an photographer from New York, based in Paris. She also founded KdlV Creative, a media consulting agency which works with brands in the design, fashion, and hospitality industries internationally.
