Only two days left until I find out whether I am a HAND AND LOCK FINALIST for the 2015 PRIZE!!! FINGERS CROSSED!!!
This year has been a very slow start for me, trying to get into the flow, with no money! I had already payed for The Hand And Lock Competition for 2015 but the brief of COUNTRIES, really baffled my mind! Literally threw me off parr!!!!! So in my creative mindset I decided to look deeper into the idea of countries! Rather than being really obvious and embellishing a Union Jack to a dress or some sort of flag or replica of a countries embellishments/embroideries I decided to look into disasters natural and man made and one that I have always found interesting is the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster (NOW THIS WAS AN IDEA I CAN WORK WITH) So after a long process of bleaching, dying, studding, embellishing, burning, ripping, shredding, distressing, I created a beautiful outfit that stands out from most! LETS HOPE THIS MAKES ME A WINNER OR AT ATLEAST A REPICENT OF A PRIZE OF SOME SORT!!
Behind the scenes imagery I have never seen before of the Graduate Fashion Week 2012 preview shoot – there was never a final photo produced but the fact it was seen by fashion photographer Ben Weller and I.D Magazines Charlotte Stockdale makes me really happy. So exciting, i cant believe i have never seen this before!! Find the actual video at http://vimeo.com/45448463
I couldn’t of really asked for better models to be honest! they were rocking it! using each other as props and having a connection with each other!! As soon as i saw who was wearing my clothes i couldn’t of been more pleased because i think they are a good representation of the style in which my garments perceive! BLOODY AMAZING.
One of my favourite designers in the whole wide world! Absolutely incredible! Ever since i found this designer, i have been nothing but inspired, if i hadnt of found denim, i wouldnt of got myself through uni and i wouldnt of got into vogue and the observer, SO HAPPY. Everytime i see their work i get more inspired by the minute! Fierce!
