One of the things I love most about what I do is that I get to look for, look at and make beautiful images! Here are some that I came across this week. There was definitely a theme emerging – prints, beads and the red, pink and white palette.

Fashion, Made in Rwanda

Made-in-Rwanda-fashion

I love Anthropologie's always-eclectic fashion, accessories, homeware and general design aesthetic. I was browsing their website the other day and came across some items from Made in Rwanda that are, you guessed it, made in Rwanda. I haven't managed to find out more about the brand but, in the meantime, scope what's on sale.
