ALWAYS A LADY


I adore this shoot from Vogue Russia by Ben Toms. It've very much the sort of thing I had in mind for the shoot I want to do for my Resort wear car printed dress. The new face of Prada, model Meghan Collinson looks so good in cat eye shaped glasses, something I really want at the moment!! So really rather jealous..love how distinct her brow makes her look too.
 

For my own Resort wear shoot I had been planning on using cars obviously because of the print but also making it look as though the model was going on a journey, traveling for a holiday with old suitcases and what not. However, after seeing this I feel like creating something set in a much more domestic scene, very reflective of the lifestyle of 50's women - think Revolutionary Road.

This shoot has been styled by my new hero Katie Shillingford, with a mixture of the obvious Prada, Miu Miu, Jean Paul Gaultier and Dolce & Gabbana, Feel like I could add a bit of sparkle and sexiness with a hint of lingerie and jewellery.



Best get planning!!

Hope everyone has had a lovely day and feels as fat as I do!
Eaten farrrr too much and desperately want to get to the gym and get myself fit and healthy and make a good start to the new year!

I got some lovely little presents including a super cute watch from my boyfriend that has a little cat on the face and a mouse as the second hand! Dad got me a beautiful Alex Monroe necklace and Mum an Anya Hindmarch bag!
Lucky me!

I shall have to post pictures soon and get back to regularly posting.

STEPHANIE BAECHLER

Whilst browsing Trendland.com at college the other day I came across the work of Swiss artist Stephanie Baechler.

Inspired by curtains, plastic bags, wrapped objects, pleated fabrics and creased blankets, Baechler used the technique of hanging various pieces of fabric from a white wall, photographing them and then printing the resulting image onto fabric. She then cut and draped the printed fabric on a model to create garments with interesting an confusing surface decoration.


It's a really clever and effective technique. The fabric gives the illusion of having creases and pleats that aren't actually there. I'd definitely like to give this a try sometime! Hopefully I can find a way of incorporating it into a project.

 For a better understanding of how it's done I recommend watching the video.

Fabric Project from Hochparterre.
