Though you can’t tell by today’s weather, summer’s knocking on our door. Time to get inspired by new trends in design. One place to start is by attending the Imagine Showcase, “The Future of Design,” on Friday, May 20, at the Hilton Sacramento Arden West (2200 Harvard St., on the other side of the freeway from Arden Fair) starting at 6 p.m. You’ll see displays and designs by the graphic, interior and fashion design students from the Sacramento campus of the International Academy of Design & Technology, with a fashion show at 7:30 p.m. The Emmy Award-winning TV host Lisa Quinn, author of Life’s Too Short To Fold Fitted Sheets, hosts the evening’s festivities.
