[article_content][author]Author. If delete this tag will be default author[/author][title]Title. If delete this tag will be default title[/title][content] We're launching the full Nautical Street campaign together with a spanking new website early next week! As most of you would have already know, it took awhile to finase the prints for this collection. Now that everything is ready, let's take a look at some sketches, prints that didn't make it and the final prints used for Nautical Street! The first 3 are prints that didn't make the cut. We thought a more softer blue could work. These 2 are the final prints used! Can't beat Navy Blue and Red for Nautical vibes. Red Navy Shawl Black Nautical Shawl We experimented with variations...

#Selbseries | How nautical theme has evolved

Before we even started on producing designs for nautical theme collection, we did some research and got even more inspired to work on this.

Got these  Paracord Bracelets for $6 each.. I spent the rest of our budget on this buoy. Perfect for our shoot!...

#Selbseries | CNY VS Hari Raya

I have always loved diversity, and so this year as a muslim I celebrated my first Chinese New Year with my husband's family. His mom is chinese, ( dad is indian ) and because we all take halal food, his parents usually host the reunion dinner. I was all excited and dressed up making sure I'm all red and merry! When everyone arrived at my parents-in-law's place, to my surprise, they were dressed pretty casual. I was probably the "red-dest". Since I now have experienced both cny and hari raya, I cant help but to make a comparison. CNY VS HARI RAYA 1) Dresscode CNY: Hardly anyone wears the traditional costume anymore. Only older folks or young kids would wear...
