What a wild year 2020 has been. We launched our first edition in the winter of 2019/2020, so what better way to celebrate our launch anniversary than to go down memory lane! We are so thankful for you for supporting us and our journey and sticking with us through this insane year. It didn't go quite as we planned, but hey! That's what makes you grow. We won't give up and are excited to bring you more amazing collaborations in 2021.
