Vogue January 2011 by Patrick Demarchelier

This is such a beautiful shot which summaries McQueen Spring 2011 Collection. I think Sarah Burton has had VERY big shoes to fill, but this collection is beautifully detailed and the patterns are just amazing as always! 

Well Done

Spilt Milk from Natalie Young on Vimeo.

I was browsing through an amazing blog called 1ina100 who  also are great at helping emerging designers gain exposure to the world of design.

i came across this animation created by Natalie Young, i think the story is quite comical and fun. i quite like the look of the animation too. Check it out!

Also look at the 1ina100 website.

My Time at River Island

I have loved working at River this week and it has just made my goal of becoming a retail designer more stronger than ever. Being in such a nice creative environment was really refreshing and i was  so comfortable. These were the fabric boards i made for the dresses department along with some designs. (below)

Ladies Wear, Casual Dresses Designs.

They must've been impressed with me because they have asked me to come back in february and help put again!


After harsh criticism and being what i called 'Creatively Bruised' this week i think i have produced something that i think will really impress and reboost my confidence in creativity.

I currently have a theme of Identity, and i must be honest i was no way inspired by this theme. but after taking these pictures im feeling confident.

These are my Black and White Portrait photos of Justin Cuthbertson.

tomorrow i shall have more with a very sexual model ;)

The Faces of Hannah Rose

Hannah Rose
I have a photography project which i am doing for my A Levels and i have chosen the theme of IDENTITY. i decided to get my glamorous model Hannah Rose to talk about things that made her laugh, angry, and intrigued her. As she spoke, i was taking images of her face to capture her facial reactions and this is what i caught.

Everyones facial expressions are unique and different and they catch a glimpse of who that person is. so this is "The Face of Hannah Rose"

Vogue UK Januray 2011: Keira Knightley by Mario Testino

Vogue Januray 2011 Cover

Vogue January 2011
Not my favourite of shoots or spreads!  I really don't like this cover ... just because of the polka dot dress, how she's lying and the expression on Keira's face. i also think its too dark to have on the cover so close to xmas plus the overload of writing doesn't work. very different from the normal Vogue UK's covers.

Sorry Vogue
