Late last year we gave our readers a special task for the commencement of our first competition. We called all illustrators to create a template for the design of a new scarf by the masterful Central Saint Martins and Goldsmith’s graduate, Mia Jafari, whose majestic scarf range has caught the eye of Vogue, Grazia and Nylon Magazine.
We received a plethora of submissions and with your help, decided on the winning design of Florence Bamberger, a graphic designer and illustrator from Paris.

Together they worked hazardously to design and produce a limited edition scarf, “The Florence”, which we are thrilled to present to you today.
"The Florence" scarf
Designed in collaboration with Sketchbook Magazine and illustrated by Florence Bamberger, The Florence comes in a sumptuous fuchsia pink and black box, with the Mia Jafari LONDON logo stamped on the front.

These beautiful boxes are handmade locally using the highest quality of recycled card. In addition, each scarf comes with a hand sewn Swarovski encrusted swing tag at a tiny edition size. The Florence scarf is on silk double georgette so prints are visible on both sides, therefore compatible to wear however you choose.

The Florence measures at 63 x 63 cm and is available to purchase online for only £45 at the Mia Jafari Official Shop:
DELIVERY IS FREE WORLDWIDE
Referencing peacocks and Jean-Paul Gaultier, The Florence scarf is ideal for anyone interested in exclusive yet whimsical luxury.
Sketchbook would like to thank both Mia and Florence for their hard work throughout the procedure of the production. We are so happy with the result.
