December must haves

This winter, make sure you are knitted out with three of the best trends this winter: 
1. Ankle boots. Each season we see clothing trends mirrored in shoe trends. This season is all about embroidery, velvet and patent. Embroidery is for the more daring, making any outfit instantly a statement look. I already bought mine from Asos back in August, but they are only getting bigger and better and more embroidered! Velvet is a more subtle way to jazz up your ankle boots, making them look extremely luxurious and plush. Or go one step further and combine print and velvet, why not!? Last but not least is the patent boot, which has been around for years but has been reinvented using bright colours and tonal prints, what’s not to love?

Here are a few of my favourites:

2. Staple skirts. Embroidery and velvet also feature in skirts, with the addition of pleats and tulle midi’s. Dress them up or down, add flat shoes or heels, these skirts can take you anywhere. My favourite is the pleated midi skirts, team these with a chunky roll neck during the day and transform to a plain Bardot top for the evening. 

3. Winter knitwear. No one wants to look like they are wearing thousands of layers during the winter, regardless of how cold it is. Make sure this winter you combine the latest trends with comfortable cables. These knit picks will be sure to do both st the same time, double tick. 


Grunge ‘n’ Art feature

Finally it’s here!

Grunge ‘n’ Art magazine issue 3- Vision.

After a long and anticipated wait I have finally received my copy of the magazine which features my collection. It’s great to see my work in print and be featured with other new designers.  I love the feature and the images are great, many thanks to all that contributed behind the scenes.

Graduate fashion week, Day one

Graduate fashion week 2015. The newest generation of young design graduates are given an amazing opportunity for their garments to take centre stage. 

Saturday 30th May.

I travelled to London hoping to see new and exciting ideas on the catwalk. It was a beautiful sunny day and the Truman Brewery venue was a hub of fashion fans. Inside the event were tonnes of university stands, showing portfolios, garments and showcasing student’s work. Along with this, there was a live photography studio, 3D printing room and talks with designers and bloggers throughout the day to give advice and inspiration to the audience. To top this all off, upstairs, and a new addition this year, was the bar. A chance for gatherings to take place and prosecco to be drank, a cool and quirky spot for all. 

 I managed to go and see the Rochester and Birmingham City university shows. 

On the whole, I found many garments unique and interesting from both shows. Prints were a vibrant feature with some beautifully illustrated designs, teamed with heavy bass music it proved an exciting show. However many were very wearable and simple; In my eyes a catwalk is for over the top, exaggerated fashion that could be filtered down to the high street and to gain inspiration for trends. So I will admit that I was a little underwhelmed with some collections. I love to see inspiring pieces that are unique, eye catching and push the boundaries but I believe this year collections have been dramatically toned down.

Below are some of my favourites from the shows I managed to go to. 

1. Love the print scales and layering of this collection. It’s a classic girly dream with glitter and sequins on pretty silhouettes.   

  2. I really like the colour palette of this collection and particularly the masculine and oversized garments. The placement prints also added interest to the garments and gave them depth.   3. Inspiration of maybe America or Las Vegas, this collection seemed literal but had lots of impact. The models were turned into human signs with colourful slogans and wording. It was unique and humorous.   4. One of my favourite garments so far, the interesting mixture of textures saw a simple silhouette but amazing skill. I love the colours and matching shoes!  5. Embroidered mustard leather featured intricate work and skill. Again, a simple silhouette which left all the attention on the detail.   6. I really love this piece, a fine line between wearable and wonderful but the exaggerated pleating works really well. The floral print also compliments the fluid design.

 7. Stripes and spots? No, stripes and flowers! Love this collection. The prints were beautifully placed and the vibrant colours left this being my Number one lasting impression collection. 


Stay tuned for my round up of the best of the best over the complete four days of the shows. 

Who do you think should get an Award this year?

Into the Unknown…

It has been an extremely busy month with lots of collaborations!
My latest with photographer Vicky Chambers was set in an abandoned swimming pool venue.
This shoot combined reality with a sense of disillusion with an eerie nature. I love the unusually unique perspective shown and believe it created an extremely exceptional shoot.

Model: Phoebe Reuben.
