I have a purse that would match the giraff print outfit. Do you think they would just let me borrow it?

OMG the giraffe and the checkerboard...awesome.
I also like the way that the models were styled, with lots of movement.
Great photos.

My father was "Mr. Fred" and it's wonderful to see one of designs from his "op art" period on the web.
