Firstly Happy New Year everybody!!

I'm really excited for what this year has to offer, firstly I start my design internship at Teatum Jones!
I have to admit I hadn't heard of them before my placement mentor mentioned they were looking for interns. So of course entered google and was really excited by what I saw! It was kind of strange seeing a collection so similiar to my own aesthetic, strong effective prints mixed with androgenous-looking draped pieces which looked beautifully complex yet wearable. 
Thankfully my interview went well and I'll be starting in a couple of days! Really excited for what they have to offer for A/W 11/12.

6 months later... and I'll be going back to uni to get on with my final collection and by June 2012 I should have graduated!

...I'm hoping to grow alot as a designer and a person this year hence the title 'Evolving' which will be the name of my personal blog/diary of my thoughts, inspiration, internship etc.

As I want to record everything I've decided to keep my new blog private for the mean time as some of the info on it may be confidential to the company, so after they show their A/W 11/12 collection at Fashion Week I'll see if it's ok for me to share my experience then!

So here's some of my faves from Teatum Jones S/S11! Click the link to check out the rest of their collection! xx


Im Proud of my Uni Man!! #UEL #GFW

Hi there! last time I posted I was 20...now im the big 2.1.!!

Soo my birth-week is finally up! (Believe me I partied hard!) and thought i'd come back and drop a post about the amazing collections that came out of my uni this year!

I'm in my second year so we were asked to help the graduates; being a general helper I did a bit of everything:
from raising money for their exhibition stand through cake sales, to running, to hand sewing to customising shoes etc etc so I got to see alot of the students work throughout the process.

In my first year when I was helper I did actually feel overwhelmed by how much work had gone into their collections, and being a backstage dresser I didnt get to see the final result on the runway so it was great to be able to watch the show this year!

I just kept thinking to myself I must get into GFW 2012!! I MUST! I was specifically looking closely at what was "runway worthy" in my eyes..the garments that made me stop and say wow how long did that take he/she to make, or how did they do that! I love an element of suprise, or quirky things you wouldnt expect, be it a mistake that has been developed into something beautiful, I think it brings a different aspect to your work.

Heres a video taken by a lovely LCF student/blogger that I met working on the stand! ADORNGIRL!

3 months later...can u say worst blogger ever *bows head in shame*

I think I deserve it to all those who have checked my blog over the past 3 months and have seen the same post about Haider Ackermann a little explanation...

So the backstory behind this attrocity:
Basically for my second year design project we also had to create a blog as a PDP (diary) of our design process throughout the module...

So I'd be posting something really interesting on there, and on trying to not complicate the two I gave up on one. #sadtimes
oh if you only knew the madness of last semester!!

You can check out my assessed blog here!

But its all over now so I'm back in full force!

So heres some "evidence" of what i've been up to over the past couple of months.

Second Year Fashion Show


The Show

It was an amazing turnout selling from 600-700 tickets!
