Brian started in window coverings in an unconventional way back in 2002. He first started in the industry as a window film installer. Brian started with Danny's Family window tinting in 2002. High-end cars were his forte. Brian soon took the things that he learned from automotive window film and applied it to residential and commercial applications. This is really where he started to gain an appreciation for Window Treatments.
Brian co-owned Quality Window Tinting in 2008 where he dialed in his window tinting talents into one of southern Utah's leading flat glass installation experts. He has installed all types of Window films from high-end Ceramic products to designer frost films, to incredible strong Security films.
In 2012 Brian bought into D&M Blinds with Dave Kinzie. Dave used his vast knowledge of the industry to train Brian in all things window treatments. Brian and Dave were a good team, growing D&M Blinds year over year. Brian took over running operations in 2014. Which enabled him to further grow in his knowledge and experience about the window coverings industry.
Brian is also a member of NWCFA. National Window Coverings Fabricators Alliance. This organization consists of window coverings companies from across the country. The members are all in non-competing markets. This gives members a unique opportunity to share strategies, knowledge, buying power and many other resources. This alliance gives its members an advantage in their local markets.

Garth has been in the window coverings industry for a good while now. He opened his first drapery business in 1967 in Ogden Utah. He ran that for a number of years when he decided to open another location in Salt Lake City in 1973. He grew this business to offer more than just window coverings. They turned it into a total Interior Design center. Where they sold Window Coverings, Wallpaper, Flooring, Furniture, and accessories. Over the coming years, Garth grew this business into 5 total locations across the Salt Lake Valley. With this growth, they decided to open a fabrication facility. Where they fabricated all sorts of window treatments. They ran this business successfully for years. Garth then decided to slow down a little. He became a regional sales rep for Windows West which is a window coverings fabricator and wholesale distribution company. He sold window coverings to local dealers throughout the Southwest. Garth and his family decided to move to St George in 2001. Where he planned to retire. Garth continued to be a sales rep for Windows West on more of a part time basis.
Garth has never been one to sit still for very long. In 2012, he started a wholesale window coverings company called Designer Wholesale. This company sold and serviced to Interior Designers in Southern Utah. He provided them with wholesale access to window treatments and installed and serviced all sorts of blinds. In early 2016, Garth had begun to work with Zion Window Fashions (then D&M Blinds). He had a working relationship with them. He had a health scare and almost didn't make it. This scare is what caused Garth to fold Designer Services. And join forces with Brian. He then came on full time to Zion Window Fashions (then D&M Blinds). This enabled him to still do what he loves without the physical demand of owning, operating, and most of all installing for his company. Garth now concentrates on using his vast knowledge of window coverings to help his clients with Zion Window Fashions.
Garth has always been an absolute professional in this industry. He has a reputation that is surpassed by no one in the St George area. Zion Window Fashions is fortunate to have someone of his caliber on the team.
