Meet the Waco Postal Worker Who Designs for Hermes

You've had your favorite scarf for so long you've now officially worn it as a headband, vest, cover up and love bite disguise. 

Fancify your collection with Hermès scarves designed by legendary Waco artist Kermit Oliver. The only American to ever design for the Parisian fashion line, Oliver is a 71-year-old U.S. postal worker who sorts mail by night and creates art in his East Waco home by day. Kermit has designed 17 bright and intricate scarves for the powerful fashion house, and his are the best selling in Hermès history. These serious collector items command thousands on eBay from his cult following of fans.  His most recent design, La Vie Sauvage du Texas, features a depiction of wildlife inspired by a trip to King Ranch.

You won't want to keep this show under wraps.
