Inspiring People: Donna Wilson

Screen shot 2014-04-13 at 10.45.07 PM

I’ve been in love with the designs of Donna Wilson for years now – drawn to it initially by the plush dolls (of course), but also loving the housewares and especially the ceramics. I love seeing how designs for plush are transformed into knit creatures, and the amazing styling that she puts out in her shop season after season.  It seems that Donna’s business grew very organically from a creative place, and she learned as she went about running an actual business – She was so young when things really took off.  Everything she’s doing is working of course, since her goods are very well known – What is especially nice to hear is how much of her process she is able to keep local, supporting her own community and employing like minded people. Also, she just seems like the loveliest human being. There is a video interview by Uppercase here – and please, someone stop me from jumping into that studio…
