The Libertarian

Morning folks!

This Monday I am sharing with you some truly amazing headwear by The Libertarian. She is a sculptural genious when it comes to creating fantastic pieces as headwear and for any occasion. Designer, maker and founder of The Libertarian, Jayne Elwell, has an aim with her business;

"To provide an imaginative and original alternative to the high street, so that customers can find individual designs that have been made to a high standard and haven't been massed produced."

She goes on to state that she wants to "bring freedom to fashion. I don’t want fashion to dictate, I want fashion to celebrate." I think this is an amzing approach to the fashion industry where originality and a certain amount of rebellion can create amazing design! I'm certainly a fan!

Enjoy! Kelly :)

Paris Versus New York

Paris and New York, two of the most exciting cities in the world. They are both grand, beautiful and interesting in their own way.
In his wonderful book, art director/graphic designer Vahram Muratyan has created a very witty and fun graphic parallel. In simple yet brilliant icons, he showcases the cultural differences that represent each city and it's citizen so well. I love it! Visit the blog for a sneak peak and to find out more about the book. See you next week, Love Moni!
