FiFi'S PROCESS

FiFi takes her pieces beyond the idea of just prints. After they are printed, each piece is hand sewn, stamped, painted on and embellished further. Each edition tells its very own story. From the moment of conception, each print is given soul. With a dash of glitter and little bit of edge, magic is made in these limited edition small batch print releases.
