Help Nazim’s Art be Discovered by HSN

I am sharing Nazim’s latest additions to his VIDA Wearable Art Collection here today because WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!

There is brand new HSN (Home Shopping Network) competition beginning today July 8th which Nazim has been asked to participate in. As most of you know Nazim graciously allowed me to take credit for the “Rainbow Rose” painting which we collaborated on but he actually painted, so I could make my debut on HSN’s, Colleen Lopez’s “The List” show.

I entered the competition for this call for art around the first of this year (2017) because VIDA asked their artist to submit art with our mission statement that VIDA would then submit to Steve Madden for a shoe and bag which he would create exclusively for VIDA exclusively. (See the items above which debuted July 6, 2017). We could hardly believe it when he selected the “Rainbow Rose” art work which I submitted, out of thousands of submissions. Steve Madden did indeed create the gorgeous shoes and bag currently available on the website.

The latest VIDA/HSN competition is a bit different because this time to be eligible we have to have, between today and July 12th, $500 in sales volume at Nazim’s Website.

We have been provided with a 15% off gift card to help our customers cost wise, so just use HSN-JLAC at check out as the coupon code, between now and midnight 7/12/17 if there are somethings you would like to order.  Please check out Nazim’s website and see what speaks to you. Your purchases would be absolutely awesome right now and help us so much!

Nazim has painted some magnificent original paintings which as you know I translate and design for his website (and mine, too) to create the wearable art, featuring apparel and accessories. I am including some of the newest additions.

The items above are from the “Rose in Blue” Collection by Nazim Artist
