LIZZO 2008 full fabric collection preview
I must admit that the above fabric editor is one of my favorites. I couldn’t resist not presenting its new collection at yatzer! LIZZO has a magical and poetic way to present its fabrics every year, publishing these awesome catalogues. The results are better and better every year. As a stylist, I have to admit that such editorials and room sets need hours of styling. This is one reason why I adore them! Another reason, is the sense when you put these fabrics on your hands.. And if you live in Athens, there is no better place to feel the LIZZO sensation than the fabric boutique of Marina Sfakianaki – exclusive interiors (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you don’t live in Greece, check where is the closer place to find LIZZO collections in the official Lizzo site. It’s worth it…trust me!
