ICYMI, Simon was a close friend/collaborator of the late Alexander McQueen. He also served as director of Academy of Art University's School of Fashion for 29 years. Today his label, When Simon Met Ralph, employs his signature graphic printing techniques on vintage, deadstock and discarded garments to create "new” pieces that ooze modernity with edge. Giving old clothes new life with his undeniably cool stamp is Simon’s happy place.

Inspired by her wall at 7x7, she'll teach you her techniques for applying watercolor paint over metal leaf to moody, ethereal effect.
