We marched and now we act.

I am trying to get ready to suit up for Fashion Week, but it feels like a big step to go from wearing sweat pants to something fashionable right now. Also I am having a really hard time trying to focus on anything other than what is happening over seas in the states. I check the news every minute to see the latest status on world destruction. Although we might notice that with out the news. I feel like I want do to something, say something, I want to protest! I went to the Women’s March website to sign up for the 10 actions 100 days. You should too, we all need to get involved more in politics, if 2016 thought me anything is that we cannot take anything for granted. One thought that makes me feel a little bit better is that these old white stupid men won’t live forever and I truly hope that the saying ‘it gets worse before it get better’ is true.

To quote the brilliant Hillary: ‘human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard.’

Interior inspiration

Emma's on a search for interior inspiration.

Clothing rack and footstool, Granit.
I am trying to gather some new inspiration for the house. Right now I am very inspired by light untreated wood and silver. I would love to make a similar painting to the folded one in the top of the mood board to have in the down stairs living room. I made this moodboard for something very exiting that we are launching Monday on Fashion Week, I can’t say any more right now other than this is to be continued… Watch this space!
