Today is 1st February which means that 13 days from now is THE day of the year when we tell our beloveds just how much we love them. And what better way to do it than with a Valentine's Day card designed by Fashion Editor at Large?! Our friends at fab vintage store Beyond Retro asked us to come up with a design which could be sold in their stores, with proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation. Of course, we were thrilled to oblige. Inspiration came from the V&A's Postmodernism exhibition which we went to see a few weeks ago, in particular the bricolage (a.k.a collages) of architects Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. We put a fashion-y spin on the concept with a lacy background (quite sexy, non?) and cut-outs from the titles of iconic magazines. Most of all we wanted to make a card you can give to anyone you love.
Some other bloggers also got involved...
Shini from Park and Cube
Laetitia from Mademoiselle Robot
And Bip Ling...
You can get the cards at any Beyond Retro store- click here to check out locations, or give them a call and order some over the phone! They're are £3 each and £1 from every sale will go to the British Heart Foundation.
