AW20 is here and our summer footwear is being replaced by a whole host of new season styling opportunities, and this season we’re celebrating our self expression. Inspired by her colourful and contemporary print designs, we asked Louise of Manchester based Naftys what Express Yourself means to her as well as what influences her artwork and her style.
How long have you been creating your artwork for?
I started out in fashion design but have gradually moved into graphics and found that is where I get my real kick. Naftys started about three years ago, however was doing a lot of crazy collages before that for years, you can see on my insta page.
How did you get started?
Getting involved with Manchester Psych Fest, doing line up posters and the branding for them. Music is a huge part of the creative process of my designs, I have been doing exhibitions at festivals for a few years. I feel like my artwork grows with what music I am currently into!
