haul

Summer and the City.

You’d think that I’d be over this weather, it keeps on raining but it’s so humid out! Today, I went to  York for the day, well the morning and I picked up a couple of things from Topshop and Boots. I also popped into College and picked up all my work and i had 4 massive bag fulls of garments and sketchbooks that i had to haul on to the train home. I am absolutely shattered and I think I have a shoulder injury!  Skeleton off the shoulder crop top – Topshop – £7Gold and Pastel Pink Spike Necklace – Topshop – £4.50Lip Balm in Watermelon and Rose…

Through the years – Holiday Pictures!

A slightly different post for you today, In this horrible weather, i wish i could just jet off to an exotic island and sit on sun lounger by a swimming pool. I’ve been sorting and organizing old photographs and came across a few from some of the holidays I’ve been on (I’m missing photos from when i was 7-13 years, I hope i can find them!). I’ve been fortunate to go to some really amazing places! I thought i would share some photos as they’ve made me chuckle at my young innocent self. Enjoy! 18 Months Old on Santa Monia Pier!

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…

This is just a quick post that i’ve been meaning to do all week, some of you might know that i’m a fashion student and tommorow we’re having the big fashion show and this is my collection that will be in the show.

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…
