#creatorsmashup at Unknown Union

On Saturday I participated in an amazing event called #creatorsmashup at Unknown Union. The event was organised by Jason from Unknown Union and Adrienne and Andrew from A and A Take The World. It was a relaxed party of art, creativity, music and wonderful people. I simply had to take out my camera to capture the amazing style on display all around.
