Monthly Trend Report: Polka Dots!
It is with great pleasure that I’m introducing a new monthly columnist for ‘mirrormirror’. Tina Ramchandani omits to mention that she works for a Very. Famous. Interior. Designer so she really knows her onions. FINALLY we’ll get some proper insights around here. Check back around the middle of every month to hear more from Tina. (I have also been inspired to dye my hair bright orange).
Hello everyone! You may remember me, my name is Tina Ramchandani and I author the design blog Life in Sketch. A few months ago, I stopped by while Paola was on vacation and shared my New York Secrets with you. Well, now you'll be seeing more of me! Paola has asked me to return and share with you my monthly trend report. I'll be reporting on trends I see forming and those that are continuing. Today, I've got something really fun for you - polka dots!
Many of you have heard of the fabulous Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. She was very popular here in New York in the 1960's and the dots, well, they’re her thing, and they have been for a very long time Ms. Kusama is back with exhibitions in London and New York, and she's teamed up with Louis Vuitton to create a very special new collection.
It's interesting to see things getting popular, and it's even more interesting to see them become a full on trend. Everywhere I look, I see dots! This was happening before Kusama's exhibits and collection were announced, but now, there's no denying the dot love. Here are a few images I can't take my eyes off of.
