N O W I N NS PASSING THROUGH HOME BUSINESS India Hicks will be charming audiences at the Antiques + Modernism Show this November. ISLAND LIVING By Laura Hine India Hicks is design royalty, so it’s fitting she’s one of the featured speakers for this year’s Antiques + Modernism Show at the Winnetka Community House. Hicks, who is the daughter of legendary British designer David Hicks and Lady Pamela Hicks, now runs her eponymous lifestyle brand from her home in the Bahamas, which she shares with her partner, David Flint Wood, and their five children. “I have a passion for design, and I love the chance to bring the story behind an object or a collection to life and to share that with other women,” she says as we talk about her newest venture and how it came to be. There are references in the pieces, which range from stylish bags to beauty products, of both her London background and her island lifestyle. “We’re really so lucky to get to travel,” she says, talking about the women who are her clients and also her influencers. “For many of us, design is both a constant thrill and a consistent thread in our lives.” A+M Show Nov. 4-6, tickets $15; India Hicks luncheon Nov. 5, noon, tickets $60; breakfast with Alexa Hampton Nov. 4, 9 am , tickets $60; brunch with Michael Del Piero Nov. 6, 11:30 am , tickets $45; thewinnetkashow.com R ARE RIDE HOT WHEELS In select markets—including Evanston—renting a car no longer means settling for boring.
