Barbara Agnes is a freelance textile and print designer who also runs her own scarf and accessories brand Barbara Agnes, created in 2009. Additionally, she works as an illustrator for several famous brands including Chanel, Top Shop, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta. Her latest project is illustrating for a new niche fragrance and day spa brand Free Persephone, for whom she develops the visual brand identity and packaging. The Spa will open in the 6th arrondissement of Paris (66 bd Raspail 75006) in September 2015 where various Barbara Agnes products will be sold as well, such as scarves, sleeping masks, pyjamas and cushions.

Prior to this she has completed a scarf range for Rapha, a luxury sportswear brand in England. This collection was inspired by the French country side and shows a modern interpretation of the local flowers and fauna. The products are currently selling in their boutiques and online.

In the fall, Barbara’s scarves will also be part of special project with Sogo a high-end Japanese department store for which her products will go on sale at seven of their stores throughout Japan.
