Arts Thread!

So as of today my graduate portfolio is officially live on the creative network, Arts Thread. I have uploaded manily imagery of my Final Major Project as well as one page of imagery showing pieces from my last project which also centered round a botanical theme. This is another valuable way of getting my work seen by important people!! Have a look!!!

Final Show Progress

I have spent the last few days deciding which designs i am going to make into drops for my final show in June. I have selected two main designs, one of which i have already printed aswell as a third which i really like but not quite sure whether or not its too simple. For the remainder of this week i have been tweaking a previous design to make it sit better with the other drops. I have enjoyed this designing for purpose and i am pleased with how the design is coming along.

Botanical Beauties!

This botanical inspired collection by Stella MaCartney is absolutely stunning. Referencing classical prints and paintings, Stella's deigns are beautifully composed and the colours within them are gorgeous. If i had a spare penny or two i would LOVE one of these lovely dresses, or a bag...!

As you may have already guessed, i am a big lover of all things British. There's something about British design which is endearing, classical and desirable. Both Barbour and Jack Will's pride themselves on being 'fabulously British'. It is brilliant to see another great british design company collaborating with both. Liberties of London have worked closely with both brands to add a touch of print to the original products. The addition of a liberty to print would improve anything!! Absolutely gorgeous... and again, if i had some spare pennies..!

Another British brand, Ted Baker have also jumped on the botanical print bandwagon this season introducing their 'Rose Bug' print which i adore. The colours are divine and hidden bugs and bees create a wheres wally effect which i love!

This print has been used to adorn a lot of different garments and accessories! Ted Baker are obviously aware of the beauty of this print... they have put it on every type of garment they sell!! I have my eye on the swimsuit but at a tasty £69, i might just have to keep dreaming!!
