“The lady wore latex. The shiny top Karlie Kloss sported with her prim pencil skirt and blazer to open Oscar de la Renta’s show was indeed made from the material most associated with the bedroom and operating room. Chic rather than subversive, it showed up again on a slick emerald-green tank and pencil skirt worn — in a glorious color combination — under a hot pink silk faille jacket embroidered with black tassels. The models came out in edgy, laser-cut booties, their hair swept into messy beehives streaked with pink, yellow and blue. De la Renta is no punk; he was just having a little fun with a collection that was otherwise purely pretty and wonderfully grand.”

“A touch of layering infused with a hefty dose of Bananarama style, circa “Cruel Summer,” the Marc by Marc Jacobs women’s collection charmed with a relaxed attitude. Oversize shirts were tucked into rolled-up baggy pants, a full-skirted peplum dress was worked in faded floral denim and striking patchwork designs combined checks, gingham and paisley for a youthful zest. The show’s cool styling (scarves for belts and hair accessories) offered countless ways a girl can put her irreverent wardrobe together.”

FINAL MAJOR PROJECT

These are the garments I have created for my final major project at college. I have based my project around the seaside and beach and looked a lot into print and pattern. I printed the material myself using the screen printing process and focused on both the print and the actual design and construction of my garments. These will be shown in my college fashion show next week as well as a small exhibition of this project which features three canvases I have printed using screen printing.

This is the poster/flyer for my Final Major Project. I have based my project around the theme ‘seaside’ and have printed the background of this poster/flyer onto fabric for my final collection of garments as well as on canvases too. You should definitely come and have a look at the exhibition which takes place on the 19th- 22nd June at Basingstoke College Of Technology.

The Art Of Reinvention

This is my final piece for my project ‘the art of reinvention’. I have created two garments around the theme of origami because I wanted to experiment with different origami techniques using different materials which is why I used fabric for my origami panels rather than paper. I also got inspiration from fashion designers including Fred Butler, Viktor and Rolf and Rowan Mersh.
