Fashion & Art

“If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.”

Love these black and white stage designs by artist Ruben Toledo for Nordstrom. They are impressive examples, of how little is often needed, when an idea is really good. Ruben is well known for fabulous fashion-illustrations  no wonder, since he's married to internationally renowned fashion designer Isabel Toledo. 
So - if your week starts looking all black and white - that mustn't be a bad thing! Just start dancing and be bold and lighthanded with your paintbrush of imagination!
