Sometimes the most intriguing ideas are born out of necessity, other times it is dumb luck. But actually taking the plunge into the process of making this idea into reality is hinged, simply, on inspiration.
Meet Fritz Janschka and Porter Aichele.
My maternal aunt and uncle, and two of the most progressive, intelligent, creative people I know. They are the inspiration and namesake of this endeavor, the Fritz Porter Design Collective… A unique retail concept that bridges the gap between the beautiful traditions and history of Charleston, and provocative, sophisticated design.
This blog-The Fritz Porter Journal-is exactly what it sounds like: A diary of the journey, of how this concept was born, the inspiration behind it, and the profiles of the many vendors who make it possible.
Please come along for the ride… I hope it to be even half as intriguing and inspirational as they are.
