The BIG Fashion Show!

Last Night was the big fashion show and it was a really good night watching everyone’s collections! There was garments from the first years and the second years (us) and then the degree students. Our year had our Jaume Plensa red-carpet dresses and then our final collections. I did a post a couple of days ago with more photos of my final collection and explaining the ideas behind them. My pictures from last night wasn’t brilliant as the lighting was horrendous so I hope that someone else somewhere took some pictures! The garments went so past, so quickly that I didn’t have time to…

snow. snow. snow.

It’s been snowing in England! I woke up yesterday and it was white over! Me and my mum went for a walk and went up on a hill above the beach and then went round the castle and for some random reason we went to Anne Bronte’s grave and sat for a while. I’m not too keen on snow but we don’t get it THAT often so i feel it’s a waste not to go out in it. aha. I went to college today and it was worse in York and icy, had a few slips. Going to stop indoors…

Catwalk to Cover – A Front Row Seat at the Fashion & Textiles Museum.

Whilst i was in London, we visited the Fashion & Textile Museum and saw the ‘Catwalk to Cover – A Front Row Seat’ exhibition. The entry cost was £5 for students and the museum is located in the Southwark area near the London dungeons. I really enjoyed the exhibition, it was basically a collection of amazing photographs took by Kristin Sinclair. There was photos of Street Style, The Shows, Backstage, Designers, Front Row and Editors. I got to see some amazing shots of Alexander McQueen, Chanel and loads more shows. There was also a collection of some of the garments…

London town.

Got back from London last night! I had such a good time, It was a college trip but it was so nice to get away with all the girls. Most of the trip was really independent, we visited lots of museums and exhibitions and did a little shopping. We stayed in a youth hostel next to the Natural History Museum, it was pretty decent and we had 6 bunk beds in our dorm. The first day we went to the Science Museum, Harrods and visited the V&A to a post-modernism exhibition (couldn’t take pictures but it was an amazing exhibition).…
