It’s that day of the year where the social media feed is full of dedications and appreciation posts to all the lovely women. Juggling life wearing different types of hats, let’s also remember thy self. Days where we are in doubt but just wing it anyway; fulfilling expectations. Let us be kinder to ourselves and look at how much progress we made albeit small steps.
Today, I would like to share with you a group of women who are dedicated to their craft. Those who have inspired me in my creative journey as well as mental wellness.
I chanced upon these two passionate creatives who were in their prime during their era.
This is Bridget Riley- a painter and printmaker. The inventor of Optical art in the 60s. Her artistic expression was timely post war. Her works were precise using mathematical to create captivating optical illusion.
The next current inspiring creative is Kim Minju, winner of the latest Netflix's Next in Fashion competition. In the beginning she had the awesome Angel as a team. These two never fail to impress with their elegant yet bold silhouettes. Often quirky, they chose bright colours and created their own prints. You got to watch it!
Minju looks eccentric in this photo with the wedding dress she designed. She was actually visualizing how to make the dress look impactful during the runway!

The 3rd on my list today is Stina Pertisson.
Stina Persson is an illustrator based in Stockholm, Sweden. The appeal of her work lies in her ability to make each piece look effortless. If there is someone I want to be for a day of an artist, its her. I like her fluid ink style together with block shapes; carefree yet strong and bold. She has done collabs with Nike, Reebok, LV and magazines like Harpers Bazaar. You can check out her IG here or go on to her website.
I'm truly inspired by these women and their creative pursuits. I'm at the midst of creating our eid2020 collection so here's a teaser to our new prints!
Lastly, we just launched a new line of LS Essentials shawls, perfect for your everyday wear. Minimal on effort yet 100% on style. Black row is now sold out but we are definitely bringing back. Do share with us your ootd of LSEssentials.
Happy International Women's Day to all of you awesome ladies!
