Shoes Shoes Shoes!!

Starting to think of styling for the fashion show and shoes are a key component that I need to think about!!! So here is a selection... Do you have any favorites? Personally am very drawn to number 3 very sweet but edgy... Am looking for some nude pairs so if any one has any suggestions of sites which have cheapish shoes of similar styles don't hesitate to offer some insight!! :)
I will do a proper post soon with my line up!! :) Had a toile crit yesterday and it went quite well - touch wood!!

Frilly Jelly

To make a pattern look like it is fluid and looks more like fabric I have been playing with good old Photoshop again!! Am trying to make prints look like they are 3D objects or garments in their own right... Hopefully these have succeeded.

Thoughts of Joseph and Anatase

The Founder of the fashion label 'Joseph' died last Wednesday 17th march 2010. He sold the company five years ago but still acted as the creative director for a short while after the sale. Nicholas Foulkes, author of Last of the Dandies, said: "With his tousled hair, slightly mischievous smile and cigar, Joseph was a true Londoner even though he never shed his French accent. I believe that Joesph will come to be regarded as one of the handful of men who shaped London taste in the last quarter of the century and who helped to establish chic London today." This quote and the rest of the article can be found here.
Whilst looking on the 'Joseph' website I came across this collaboration with Charles Antastase.

Really love this T-Shirt and studded cardigan combination!! So I had a browse on Polyvore and played around with a few of Charles Anatase's pieces :)

Well today I have been busy with design work but Mr Fashion Fantasist has been keeping himself amused with the works of Professor Brian Cox... I do not understand the science behind them but I could not help thinking how pretty the Proton Collisions were... This is not the first piece of technology that has caught my eye...Science Fiction - more importantly Star Trek is a small guilty pleasure of mine and a few projects a go I used Star Trek 'Borg' and the insides of my lap top as inspiration...

Jelly Print Onesie

I oddly like this design I have come up with but I am worried it is too boring...and a little random! But that is what I like, it is quirky strange but cute??! Thoughts?
Best Wishes

Pattern Piece Art

Today I got told that I should frame my pattern pieces (Julian Roberts) ... To be honest I can see the arty appeal to it but even though an over worked pattern piece leads to the best result I do like a clean crisp line. Here are my trouser pattern pieces however for you to enjoy...
