Welcome #PortfolioDay

#PortfolioDay was set-up to celebrate artists in a truly unique way, and it has come round once again, happening this second Tuesday of the New Year.

Luckily our wardrobe pieces do sport fantastically vibrant colors and deeply rendered textures, all of which we will show with the “bright and impermeable” theme we are planning for SFW runway.
