My very own piece of Vivienne!!

The best part of my day today... a phone call from my very excited mum telling me she's bought me a t-shirt!
now... at first i was slightly confused as on the very rare occasions my mum buys me clothes, its often a bit of a disaster... but not this time! My lovely mother has done good and bought me aVivienne Westwood Haiti Charity T-Shirt!!!
Im so excited! not only do i get to own my very own little piece of Vivienne, the proceeds also go to a great cause/ charity :)
when i go home in a few weeks for my birthday, il take some pic for you all to see :) but for now heres what it looks like....


Oh Stella... haven't you spoilt us!!!


This season i am truly in love with almost every piece in this stunning s/s collection. feminine loose tailoring, gorgeously bright patternsamongst minimalist nudes and creams, mixed with lace and oversized frills and pleats... YES PLEASE!
ive picked out a few of my favourite pieces from the collection below...


LFW, Fashion Forward award winner, Louise Goldin

"The Fashion Forward scheme sponsored by Coutts & Co and supported by the London Development Agency, was established 4 years ago to provide funding to talented emerging British designers to show and develop their businesses in London. "

Louise Goldin is one of britons leading new designers. she studied for seven years at Central Saint Martins as well as working as head designer at Tereza Santos in Brazil for two years. her talent and skills are incredible, and her latest catwalk creations have proved to live up to the high standards she has always set.
her S/S2010 collection won this years LFW Fashion Forward award. she joins the like of other designers such as Giles Deacon and of course my favourite new designer Erdem. the collection was elegant, sassy and completely in tune with the style and trends seen from the leading designers. powerful silhouettes and body con shapes defy the the traditions of knitwear.

it is so exciting to know we have such amazing talent and skills in London, these are a few of my favourite garment from the show;


My second day of blogging... and i think i might be getting the hang of it... sort of. Im planning to do a few outfit posts tomorrow, ive just bought the most gorgeous Topshop dress to wear out on my birthday, id love all your opinions on it when i put it up. :)
thanks for taking he time to look at my very bare blog...


These are a few months old, but it was a really good exhibition so thought id post up a few pics.
Show Studio FASHION REVOLUTION at somerset house. amazing show case, and a Nick Knight photo shoot with LADY GAGA :)... although she was looking drastically more dulled down compared to her normal self. The show also featured Alexander McQueen's film TRANSFORMER: THE BRIDE GROOM STRIPPED BARE which was amazing. so soon before the tragic news of his death. the fashion world has lost a true legend.


Video project to create and style a character for a short 2-3 minute film.
so... meet Verity, a vivacious and confident 29 year old, Verity Johnson lives alone in a small rented ground floor flat in the sought after area of Chelsea, London.  The beautiful white brick and black door town houses line her walk to work in Sloane Street, where she runs and owns a small antiques shop that sells vintage and restored furniture. She is an old fashioned romantic and searching for love, often finding herself on numerous blind dates, set up by her many friends. Although her efforts to find love are ever increasing, she has yet to complete her fairytale London life with the man of her dreams. Verity is often found eating out with friends in many of Chelsea’s Italian bistros, having travelled around Italy in her early twenties she adores Italian cuisine and finds that her own attempts to recreate her much loved dishes are often disastrous. Like most of her life Verity’s style is original and slightly quirky as she often buys her clothes from London’s many boutiques and markets. Feminine yet stylish Verity is not scared to stand out in a crowd and look unique. 

this was our second project, featuring on paper garments. a two day challenge to create a paper item that describes us! i went for a romantic, nostalgic feel using cut paper to resemble lace. very feminine frilly and pretty, but still structured and fitted to be as flattering as possible. think victorian lace extravagance meets modern tailoring... with paper!

my first ever blog! Im new to this, so if its a bit poor i do apologise. these are a few images from a recent photo shoot i did for some of the garments made in my first term at uni. the garments are all created from recycled charity shop bargains, deconstructed and manipulated into new fashionable items. we did the shoot at an abandoned mental asylum on the outskirts of london for a more interesting overall look. enjoy :)
the model is a friends sister, who did an amazing job!
