Fleur de lis ~ Fashions at their finest!
It is NO secret that I LOVE NOLA! AND to love NOLA you have to love the Fleur de lis.
The symbol, which is adorning this blog, and which has taken over NOLA on many levels, has really infected my soul ~ in a good way! Today I would like to introduce you to an entrepreneur who has taken the Fleur de lis to new heights!
The fleur de lis is a symbol that pre-dates New Orleans. It is the design of either a lily or iris and is a well-known icon of France. It is said that King Louis VII carried it as his emblem and that historically it dates as far back as the Merovingian King Clovis, who reportedly wore an Iris flower in his helmet as he rode to victory in a battle.
Nowadays it is synonymous with the New Orleans Saints and everything NOLA.
