Grace Kelly : Style Icon

This photoshoot in the weekend Guardian Magazine (13/3/10). It is really beautiful, really love the muted tones and classic elegance. The shoot was based on Grace Kelly because there is an exhibition opening today at the V and A!! I really want to go!!! It is open until the 26th September so hopefully I will find some time to pop to London! It is featuring dresses from the films High Society and Rear Window. Also the dress she wore to accept her Oscar in 1955..

Hello Again!

Hello! Sorry I have not updated for a while I have been elsewhere updating the blog for our Graduate Show!! Here is a brief description of my collection -

"My collection is inspired by eighteenth century England design, in particular the Georgian interiors of Holkham Hall. I found the tapestries really interesting. I liked how a flat 2D object conveyed so much detail and depth. Using drawn and photographic trompe l’oeil techniques I have tried to create flat jersey garments that give the illusion of drapes, folds and worn details.

To capture some of the feel of the tapestries that inspired me I have incorporated hand sewn tapestry sections into some of my garments.

I also found the collections of mundane objects in the kitchens of Holkham Hall oddly inspiring, and I have used the idea of a collection of jelly moulds to create a whimsical and unique design feature to add a touch of humour to my collection."
