Angelo Donghia started Donghia Associates by 1972. He was both friends and clients with Halston, Ralph Lauren,Diana Ross, Barbara Walters to name a few celebrities at the time. His love of fabrics lead him to establish Vice Versa fabrics in 1976 and later Donghia Textiles in 1980. ( I remember this from my days as an intern - pricing fabric flat folds )
Watch this interview for better view of his vision and brilliance.
I found these incredible watercolor renderings by R.Martin of spaces he designed or intended to design. Could have been when he was with Yale Burge Interiors as a partner. How incredible!
Thank you Donghia for a fabulous history lesson!
