La Femme Monkita

My good friend Kirsten Buys is beyond cool. Not only did she introduce me to my awesome wife Tara... but she is an incredible photographer, writer, journalist and creative entrepreneur. Her new company La Femme Monkita is a myriad of her stylish handmade knit goods. Beautiful hand dyed scarves, neck warmers, wraps, shawls, and blankets are just a few of her incredible creations. Brooke Vanderbaan and myself had the pleasure of creating the La Femme branding, identity and hang tags. The result was a great compliment to Kirsten's unique style.

Be sure to check out La Femme Monkita at the up and coming Detroit Urban Craft Fair which hosts 50+ of the most talented DIY artists and crafters in the Midwest. Saturday Nov. 15, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Fillmore Detroit (formerly The State Theatre.)

Since I am Kirsten's mother I know first hand what a talented, creative and giving person Kirsten is. I can't take all the credit but I will take some because I am her mother after all. She is truly amazing. Thanks for your support.

Love her work. The neck warmers are awesome. Great idea. It's amazing what a person can create with a little bit of yarn. good luck with her new business!
