Designer Tidbits: Anna Griffin

Olivia Collection by Anna Griffin is a timeless collection. With pops of pink and green and exquisite botanical prints, Olivia will become a classic for girls of all ages. Anna Griffin is on the Jolly Jabber today to tell us a little about her newest beauty, Olivia.

Q: What inspired this collection?
A:My new Olivia Collection is inspired by the beautiful bouquets of flowers from my Grandmother’s garden – just in time for Spring. Growing up, my view from our kitchen window was of her special bed of bearded iris. The main print in Olivia is a swirling, over-sized bouquet of iris and cabbage roses much like my Grandmother would have made for her dining room table.

Q: What is your favorite project using this collection?
A:My favorite project has to be the quilt that we just showcased at the International Quilt Market. It’s light and airy and begs to be taken on a picnic!

Q: What would be your collection’s theme song?
A:Eighteen Yellow Roses by Bobby Darin.

Q:If you could live in a movie, what movie would it be?
A:It would have to be the original version of An Affair to Remember.

Q:What do you get nostalgic over?
A:Things my Mother left me, like her letters and cards.

Q:What is your favorite TV show of all time?
A:The Brady Bunch

Q:If you could be a modern day fictional character, who would you be?
A:Carrie Bradshaw

Q:What’s the strangest compliment you’ve ever received?
A:That I have beautiful feet…Ha!
