Kärlek: Hi Rachelle! Tell us a bit about yourself!

RP:  Hi! My name is Rachelle Pila! I'm a Fashion Designer & Digital Creator in Los Angeles, CA. I love designing custom pieces, creating fun makeup looks - & in addition, I'm a Level Up streamer on Facebook Gaming. Overall, I love being versatile in a creative community.

Kärlek: What was the inspiration behind your art?

RP:  The inspiration behind my art is focused into my love of fashion & beauty. I drew a fashion figure wearing a dress with floral details. The artificial flowers & rhinestones symbolizes beauty. For the straps, I drew number lines to make it look like a measuring tape - it does make it look like you're wearing it around your neck, since us designers like to keep it handy with us.


Kärlek: Love it! :-) So, which mediums did you use and what made you choose them?

RP: I used fabric markers to draw my illustration, & I mixed in a little bit of water for the brush strokes on the dress to create a watercolor effect. Then I used fabric glue to stick on the artificial flowers & rhinestones.

Kärlek: What did you enjoy most about using a Kärlek backpack as your canvas?

RP: I very much enjoyed the idea of it being customizable! I love creating - literally I always try to do something creative everyday. Being able to express my personality on my Karlek backpack makes the product so unique & one-of-a-kind.

Kärlek: Do you have any tips or thoughts to share about your experience?

RP: I wish I had my Karlek backpack during my college years because it's so spacious & waterproof! So if you're carrying tons of supplies like I did, being a designer student, this is a durable bag to take on the go! Plus, it's antimicrobial which is easy to clean!
