We partnered with @illy_coffee to meet globally minded artists and learn about the destinations that inspire them. Designer @abacasheena travels to research and source textiles for her clothing line, @abacaxinyc. “I feel most inspired when my senses are on overload. I often find that immersing myself in a different way of life goes hand in hand with an outpouring of creativity. When I travel, I’m constantly snapping photos which I later reference for color or motif.” To learn more about how travel informs this designer’s creative process, click the link in our bio. #LIVEHAPPilly #traveldeeper
