Many Glaswegians will be familiar with the work of dear friend of the Kingdom the lovely Hilary Laing. Her delightful prints appear on dresses, cravats, bangles, ties, scarves and pretty much any textile a print can go on! Cheerful in the extreme, Hilary says of her designs:
"My work is very much a personal response to children and their outlook on life through their use of colour and markmaking techniques. I want people to enjoy wearing my colourful quirky pieces and the main aim is to make people smile inside."
And smile inside you do! Colourful crayon scribbles on simple-to-wear A-line dresses instantly transport you to happy summer days. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting the cheery Hilary you'll completely 'get' these designs.
I am particularly loving her ties, which would look awesome worn with a plain white t-shirt and some loose black trews, adding a little touch of cheeky colour to a masculine outfit.
Oh, and she is perhaps the only girl alive who can totally rock a pair or pink jeans with red stars.
