We are inspired by the world around us, we love the juxtaposition between using non traditional/traditional objects in our accessory design. Our current collections drew inspiration from Cotton Candy, Las Vegas, Heavy Metal Music, and most recently women of various ethnic cultures. We also draw inspiration from designers who create outside the box such as Betsey Johnson, Patricia Fields, and John Galliano to name a few.
