Production scraps from a designer sample sale will soon adorn the next collection of ANAMU clutches. At the time of purchase I had no idea what I would do with a full bag of neon and pastel silk pieces, just that I had to have them!
What I did know was that the design inspiration would come as it's usually driven by the pieces themselves. Using existing materials is a different kind of challenge because they dictate what you will create (rather than dreaming something up and then going to the store to buy it). Challenges + inspiration = fun creative process :)
Love that they say LA could find it's niche as the capital of green fashion. And ppsshh on the Ed Hardy comment. Don't even get me started on that awful thing some people claim as fashion. http://jcreport.com/intelligence/business/040509/fashions-westward-march
