Alan Sheppard, chief interior designer, Rolls-Royce

Newport Beach, CA – Chief Interior Designer Alan Shepherd took me through the Rolls-Royce. Sheppard spent a lot of time talking about the dashboard, and the side door. The dashboard and side door shows no stitching,  a design first for Rolls-Royce and it gives the interior a more elegant look. Think of the difference between a swimming pool and an infinity swimming pool. Seamless.

Sheppard takes me through the history of the Spirit of Ecstasy, or as it is known in Crewe, Emily.
