What I’m Loving: Valentino

Runway fashion is a big inspiration for my work. Trends are set from the shows and trickle down to mass market. One designer I look to is Valentino who always delivers amazing style and trends. I am IN LOVE with their Pre-Fall 2015 and Pre-Spring 2016 collections. Such artistic beauty in dreamy florals and scandinavian folk […]

She starts her design process with a drawing in her loose and gestural style. I love the use of watercolor washes, color and metallic touches to her […]

New read: REMIX

I have been following the housewares company, AphroChic, for some time. Founders Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason bring an sense of soul and culture to their products and most importantly a nod to their African heritage. I love their use of bold, geometric patterns and especially love their hand-drawn JuJu wallpaper – it’s my favorite item. […]

What I am loving…

I saw this on Pinterest and immediately fell deeply in love. It so aligns with my asethetic, my color palettes, my love of collage and sketchy drawing styles…it is just so good. I wish I knew what campaign this was for or the purpose of this editorial. Model Akuol de Mabior is perfect in these […]
