On my way back to the studio, big smile on my face because I collected 5 beautiful colorful umbrellas. One of them a leopard print made me think about something Loren Talbot from Local Labels said:
" Each one is a potential bag or dress, a design and a metaphor. When I see people carrying a particular interesting design, I think about how she would turn it into a clutch or duffel bag. This upcycling of abandoned umbrellas by Catherine is an amazing example of using abandoned resources for useful (and in her case very fashionable) products."
