Italian beauty

Every year the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund  (Council of Fashion Designers of America) award an up-and-coming designer. It's an esteemed competition, and even making it to the 12-strong short-list usually heralds a commercially viable  future in the fashion industry.  
The 2012 group included fledgling Italian label  Giulietta, whose designer Sofia Sizzi produced the most beautiful fashion illustrations. 
In my humble opinion, I think she should have won.
Watch the first of the series of fascinating videos of the finalists vying for the top prize here.

Adorable illustrations from Giulietta's Sofia Sizzi.

Take a dip into modernism

Modernism at its finest: simple, elegant, restrained.
That streamlined, curvy poolhouse could translate just as well to a home design.
