As a child, I used to love to hear stories of magical worlds filled with unexplained beauty, make-believe creatures, and stories that would my take your mind on an insightful journey packed with adventure and possibilities. 

Alexandra Bordallo’s debut collection for AGF called Dew and Moss brings me back to my youth with her whimsy prints illustrating a world where gnomes play in their gardens and live in their mushroom houses. Not only are all the prints super adorable, but the color palette is what caught my eye right away. The shades of green mixed with the wonderful pops ...

I always go to the store with a list of things I need to buy but I am not very good at sticking to what's on the list. My imagination runs wild and I see fabric that would be perfect for a summer dress, or my sister would flip if I made ...
