In honor of International Women’s Month, 10% of net proceeds from this blouse will benefit The Global Fund for Women’s Artist Changemaker Program which supports movements and recognizes that media, art, and culture are cornerstones of gender justice movements. This program supports eight artists annually with a one-time unrestricted financial award to each artist to further their work with a focus on artists based in the Global South, women artists, LGBTQI+ people, people of color and/or artists from a marginalized community.
Blair’s illustrations exude an expressionist take on contemporary high fashion, by taking fashion forward photos into a whole new realm of layered watercolors and messy smudged lines. Her focus is to draw the viewer into this new quirky, abstract, and chic world of fashion. She first worked with AO in 2017 in the Spring 2018 Chelsea Hotel themed show featuring all female artists. She returned in 2021 for the Spring 2022 how and created the backdrop used in all the look book images, which has now been turned into our iconic Willa blouse.
