DESIGN: Wonder LEE
Get to know Wonder LEE, the wildly creative designer from the Bronx that refashions old school legos into fun accessories like bow-ties and headbands. Everything is one-of-a-kind, handmade and the pieces actually spin and move! Wonder LEE began her line last December and you can find her right outside the L train entrance on Bedford Ave and N7th St in Brooklyn.
As a visual artist she is drawn to using found and recycled items, though she explains this is part of the challenge – Lego doesn’t make these unique colors anymore and she has to search hard for them in second-hand sales and vintage stores. Besides legos she also works with 45’s, cassettes, turntables, doors, glass and much more treasure that is now “formerly known as someone else’s trash”. With each piece of work she creates, Wonder LEE aims to inspire positive social conscience and encourages all to “use what they have”.
This month Wonder LEE will be at TooFly’s Ladies Love Project Pop-Up Shop along with Jasmine Solano and the upcoming Brooklyn Night Bazaar . Her pieces are carried locally in Sustainable NYC and Rebelution. Make sure to look out for her exclusive line only be offered on her website!
