I recently did some shopping at Nordstrom and couldn’t stop looking at the holiday shopping bag. The images are the perfect realization of what Christmas is like in my ideal world…whimsical, beautiful, joyful and overflowing with love. I had to find out who created those stunning images.
Ruben Toledo, a Cuban-American artist based in NYC, is the master behind the merriment so brilliantly portrayed for Nordstrom. It turns out the illustrator is married to another creative genius, fashion designer Isabel Toledo. She designed Michelle Obama’s inaugural dress back in 2009. Reading this story about their love and partnership totally warmed my heart.
