My dear friend Amazing A. took these photos a few weeks ago in the Copenhagen Design Museum and I love them. They’ve totally inspired me.

In the first photo, the white dress with the red/orange trim has me dreaming of spring days. Obviously I’d never make a white dress (if I looked at it sideways it would get dirty) but I love the simplicity of of it.

The amazing green/blue LOUD fabric in the backdrop of the second photo screams out to be made into a little shift dress.

And the yellow coat in the last photo – well lets face it, I want a little mellow yellow coat to combat winter blues!

What inspires you these days?

    1. I think that’s just it – there is so much personality in these pieces, they make such a statement, even with their simplicity.
