Chester Zoo

Here are some pictures from when i went to Chester Zoo last weekend. It was such a treat for me as i have never been to a zoo before so it gave me a chance to re live my childhood-even though im 20 years of age but i dont care! Who can't say that a day looking at animals that you wouldnt rarely see isnt fun :) My favourite animals were the chimpanzees and spider monkeys, i captured a few rather funny videos of them running around its amazing how much they remind me of humans.

Graduate Fashion Week

My university was showcasing at GFW yesterday and i was really upset that i was unable to attend due to work commitments but i have just been browsing on vogue.co.uk and they have the whole collections from UCLAN. Here are some of my favourite pieces from the show.

People Tree Competition

I recently entered a design competition for an online Fairtrade fashion  brand 'People Tree' and was delighted to come joint second. Here is a rather embarrassing photograph that was took with the designers from People Tree and Prestons Guild Event team. (I'm the one on the far left)

A Mini Collection

Here is a project that i have just finished in my 2nd year at university. The brief was to design a 'Mini Collection' from a chosen photograph and create one of the designs. I decided to chose the 'Ginza-Tokyo' photograph because i'am really inspired by contemporary architecture and Tokyo has the most inspirational, futuristic buildings. This is something i wanted to show through my designs. I wanted to re-create the pattern from the rooftop which lead me to experiment with machine embroidery to create the pattern. My main inspirations for this project are Tokyo architecture, contemporary artist Yayoi Kasama and Yves Saint Laurent's 1965 Fall/Winter 'Mondrian' collection.
