Thrifty Luxe loves Swoon & Blues
Christmas is nearly upon us. If lashing out on some extravagant gift giving, at least choose something unique and support our home grown artisans while you’re about it. We at Artgaze magazine’s Thrifty Luxe love the work of these two clever designers at Swoon & Blues.
Lisa Godfrey and Lee O’Donoghue merge art and design, and experiment with pattern and texture in distinctive forms that showcase the beauty of nature and unique colour palettes. Lisa creates distinctive designs that express her passion and fascination with Art Nouveau, Deco, Surrealism and nature in it’s most fertile form. Lee has a background in Fashion Design and Fashion Manufacturing, and has a strong tailoring aesthetic, which informs her obsession with detail and pattern making techniques.
Swoon & Blues have recently ventured into digital printing of their fabrics, with garments featuring flourishing full-colour prints. They have a striking range of printed ceramic tiles, coasters and jewellery that are beautiful accessories and decorations for the home.
