The first tentative signs of spring. The sun feels warmer, the snow is gradually receding, and today the air had a new softness to it. A hopeful time of the year — and this young woman is the lovely personification of spring. Photograph via we heart it.
I had a lovely email a few days ago from Cyrille and Lise, two sisters who a year ago began a fab business under the name Sisters Gulassa, creating surface prints and trend predictives. Although they're still a very new company, collaborating from two separate continents (Cyrille is in Vienna, while Lise is in Berkeley), their patterns have caught on like wildfire — they've already sold their work to Gap, Clinique, Target and PBTeen among others. They've now just launched their first line of fabrics called Lulu, with another line, Lili, due to debut this fall. To introduce people to their Lulu line, the Sisters Gulassa are offering their very first giveaway on their new blog — a stack of fat quarters of the Lulu Collection. Find out more (and leave a comment for your chance to win) here. Good luck!
