We had a lovely time last Saturday chatting up Jessalin Beutler and Irene Akio, our featured designer and artist this January! Sometimes our interactions with our designers happen rather quickly when they're dropping off pieces for Velouria, so it was especially nice to get to talk shop with Jessalin and Irene. We found out that we all listen to audio books when we're working in our studios! We also got to know Jonas de Varona of Meet Me Here, who is a talented clothing and accessory designer, and Jessalin's fella.
Thanks to Irene, Jessalin, and Jonas for being such good company on Saturday night! (Even though they were all fighting colds!)
