BLAC Designs Launches “Phenomenal Woman” in Collaboration with Anna Bu Kliewer

BLAC Designs and renowned London-based collage artist Anna Bu Kliewer have collaborated on a series of images celebrating women and their strength. This project is the second in a series of artist collaborations planned by BLAC for 2017.
