Designer of the Day…Virginia Johnson

Today’s designer is a great one for light and fluffy – Virginia Johnson. This really amazing textile designer combines her awesome illustrations with feminine tunics, scarves, and bags to create some really airy and fun pieces. I wanted to feature Virginia Johnson because I like the colors she uses in her prints and I love bold graphic prints anyway. Here are some examples of her illustration work…

And here are some of the amazing tops and accessories that come out of them…

Johnson studied at Parson’s School of Design and has also worked as an accessories designer for Helmut Lang and as a staionary designer for Kate Spade. These pieces are so pretty!
