Designer Tidbits: Pink Light Design

The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Angela and Lola, two of the designers for Pink Light Design, to the Jolly Jabber.  Pink Light Design’s latest fabric collection is O' Tinsel Tree from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

Q: What or who would you dedicate this collection to? Do you have an inspiration board?
A: Angela- This whimsical collection uses naive imagery and linework to create a playful and fun Christmas. Inspired by my young children Lola and Theo and their innocence and wonder towards their favorite time of the year!

A: Lola- I don't really have an inspiration board, it was more about all the sparkly Christmas decorations around my house which sparked the idea for the designs. I dedicated the collection to all the people who love Christmas as much as I do. The feeling you get when popping up the Christmas tree… Magical.

Q: What is your favorite project using this collection?
A: Lola- My favorite project was the angular baubles.

Q: If time travel became possible, what year would you want to be in?
A: Angela- I would travel to 1981, the year I was born, to witness the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer from inside St. Paul's Cathedral.
A: Lola- I'd love to be in the 50’s retro-ness, the birth of rock and roll. And let’s not forget all the amazing dresses.

Q: If you had to change your first name what would you change it to?
A: Angela- Kate.

Q: What was your favorite childhood TV show?
A: Angela- The Raccoons.

A: Lola- Orm and cheep.

Q: Who is the most famous person you have ever met?
A: Angela- David Beckham.

A: Lola- Richard E. Grant. He used to fill up at our local petrol station and I would always bump into him there.

Q: What is your favorite App to play on your phone?
A: Angela- Tetris.... totally addictive!
A: Lola- Bejewelled Blitz. I'm completely addicted.

Q: If you could marry a technology, what would it be?
A: Angela- My Mac. I couldn't live without it.
A: Lola- Apple.
