Mythical Creatures

As a child, I always loved flipping through the pages of fairy books like Brian Froud’s Faeries and World of the Dark Crystal as well as  Will Huygen’s Gnomes, I guess the 70’s/early 80’s were a good time for dark fantasy illustrations for children. London based Rachel Friere not only creates clothing, but a mythical narriative that surrounds her collections.
