I made a special trip to Orchard’s Children’s Services to ensure the foster children graduating from high school and heading off to college had something to take their belongings with them as they started this exciting journey! Each student received an Oliver Thomas duffle and cosmetic cases.
The print on the bag, "Broken Glass", is all about everyone shattering their own glass ceilings in their heads. This was one of the first prints I designed - it was very symbolic of being able to make a transition and transformation in life. I hope this inspires the children that have now aged out of foster care through this milestone transition in their lives!
Elements/symbols in the print include:
- Lightbulb: Reminder to be a creative thinker and a light for the world.
- Phrase “Be Witty”: Reminder to always have fun and enjoy the journey.
- Original Oliver Thomas Crown: Reminder to keep evolving and moving forward.
