This past weekend myself and a gaggle of girls paid Nina, one half of the mother daughter duo behind Toujours Toi Family Affairs, a visit at her studio in Brooklyn. We drank tea, snacked on cupcakes and did a bit of dress up while taking a peek at the Family Affairs F/W13 collection. I love getting a glimpse into the world that is a designers work space and learning about the inspirations behind each collection, so I'm happy to be able to share these photos with you.
Nina is playing with rich upholstery and tapestry-like fabics for fall and they create the most amazing textures when paired together. Leave it to Emily to show us the full potential of print mixing! You can even see that influence in the amazing handmade fabric jewelry—it's all hand cut, sewn and embroidered by Nina herself. Talk about craftsmanship!
