Hello. I've decided to post early this week to show you more of the above three textile characters. I shared a sneak peek in a previous post here. Also, if you follow me on Instagram and Facebook there was a glimpse of one in Friday's post about your chance to win double passes to the new Yves Saint Laurent film at Cinema Nova.
How did this come to be and why these characters? As a freelancer graphic designer I've had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ortolan and Jane where Michi Girl founders, Chloe and Dan are found. These encounters lead to another opportunity, where I got to create three, one of a kind textile characters of French fashion designers — Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Sonia Rykiel — inspired by Michi's last book, Le Shopping Guide: The Best of Paris for the Fashion Traveller.
The release of the characters coincides with Michi's new online digs and the new Yves Saint Laurent film. I'm so excited! The film looks ace and Michi has taken fun film noir inspired photos of the characters! Find them hanging out in Michi's shop here.
