Check out the latest Karma Style Snapshot with the amazingly talented illustrator and textile designer Kendra Dandy. Here's the scoop on Kendra, and her quick thoughts on fashion, style and inspiration. Instagram: @theebouffants
Kendra Dandy is an illustrator/surface designer and Philadelphia native. While trying to find a way to be involved in the fashion world by combining her love for illustration and fashion design without the ability to produce clothing, she stumbled upon the world of surface design, which allowed her to apply her painting skills in a new and exciting way to a myriad of products. Her most loved influences are nature themes such as fruit and flowers, fashion, makeup, the 50s and 60s, junk food and animals.
