My design process...
Updated: Oct 6, 2021
The first step was creating the pattern designs. I wanted to create a small, curated collection of unique yet distinguishable colourful frames. There are so many beautiful frames in the world - but not many as richly coloured and patterned as an original Miss Lou.
My first pattern design was the Bamboo series - the overlapping, dense branches created a beautiful framework for the dynamic colour choices. I am wearing the Emerald Bamboo pattern in the shape Across the Ridge in this photo.
The patterns and colours then led to the shapes - how to create something beautiful and wearable, yet bold enough to carry the Miss Lou fabric designs.
Miss Lou then designed the most wonderful eyewear shapes to complement her distinctive patterns. We are absolutely delighted in the resulting combinations.
