African Print Fashion Illustration
I’M proud to share this African Print Fashion Illustration Series on youtube with you.
But I am WAY MORE PROUD to share this instagram post from Artisan Apparel Uganda.
I cried when I read the caption.
Another exquisite artwork by @lauravolpintesta / Little does Laura know with every art she creates, she is commissioning courage in our Artisans. Imagine if someone took the time to paint / draw / design a portrait honoring you. Veronica was deeply moved by this piece and we can’t wait to see how that encouragement fuels new inspiration in her. 🔥❤ Laura, thank you, this gift translates into global impact.
It’s a dream come true to be a part of something like this.
Ethical Fashion is everything.
Now I feel some connection between my love for fashion and why I’ve been called to it!
