      Gummi Nails are a godsend. In a rush to look presentable for a fancy dinner & dance event, put them on while en route in a cab and accomplished this feat in under 20 minutes! #truestory. In addition to that, they’ve got a beautiful brand story and offer a safer alternative to […]

Storytelling, Story Told

Fall 2014 for Alice and Olivia takes a romantic, Victorian and free-spirited decadence. Red, my “favourite” colour featured very extensively in the campaign video and the decor, but thankfully not so much so in the collection itself. Firstly, a bit more about Alice and Olivia.
