FLY QUEENS

Originally published on Medium by Angela Fludd 'The Empress of Style'

It only made sense to attend the #ParsonsAlumni after hours viewing of Louis Vuitton’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez, with Jetsetter Regine Gilbert. We’ve traveled to Paris, New Orleans, Philly, D.C and many more in the future. Regine is the solo travel queen and I am still striving to catch up.

This exhibition is the perfect getaway for the holiday season with a goodie bag of tips for creatives:

TRAVEL:

The Louis Vuitton brand is built around clients who traveled the world and in doing so the brand was able to travel with them. Create for people that are literally going places. Perfect advertising wouldn’t you say?

FAMILY:

The Louis Vuitton brand is a heritage family. Family first! It doesn’t mean blood. It means holding those close who are willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears to protect the integrity of your brand’s vision.

BE TIMELESS:

Quality craftsmanship made Louis Vuitton a brand people were not only willing to invest in but unwilling to toss away. It is often passed down through generations as keepsakes or even heirlooms. It is brand that implies status and wealth. Lastly, this in itself helps to make the brand sustainable over generations with the added bonus of it’s ability to adapt to the needs of the consumer. How would you plan to make your brand sustainable? How would you design for a better world?

Happy Holidays!
