Hermès Carré Club

One of my ultimate goals as a graphic designer and artist is to create a custom design for an Hermès scarf. I became really inspired after attending the Hermès Carré Club pop up event in Los Angeles, and thought what would my scarf look like if I designed one? I decided to use my culture and add a fun twist by designing a backgammon or chess board with Middle Eastern or Islamic geometric patterns. It’s funny because I feel like for the longest time, I would avoid anything Middle Eastern-inspired, and now I have finally learned to embrace my heritage.

The scarf designs were printed on wall paper and hung for the event. I loved all the hand-drawn details.

Last month I attended a pop up for Hermès Carré Club off Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. The crème de la crème of silk, the event showed the artists working on hand-drawn designs in a live studio set up.
