“There Are No Bad Photos, That’s Just How Your Face Looks Sometimes”

That quote is from Abraham Lincoln, and it made me laugh when I saw it. It’s true everyone complains about how they look in photos. But when you look back at photos, your’ll think of the moments rather then complain about how big your ears are. So I feel photos are the best way to portray things. For this unit, I had to design t-shirts and upload them to spreadshirt.com, I found this very fun and I’m going to keep my shop up and running, adding new collections each term.  My First Collection has been going well, and I figured a good thing to do is show people how good my t-shirts are. So I grabbed my brother, a budding young photographer, and got some snaps of my new t-shirts. Visual Advertising is so important in this world, especially in the fashion industry, if you don’t like how it looks then you won’t buy it.  I have now placed this pictures on my Facebook page and it seems to be working more people are looking at my stuff. Makes me proud, to see my first ever products being actually purchased and sold. I feel like my dreams of becoming a fashion designer are slowly and gradually coming true!

Have you ever felt inspired as you walk through the bright lights of New York City. Wanted to share to the world the beauty and excitement of the urban lifestyle. Well, the founders behind the Flown Led Clothing range have mastered that look. Taking inspiration from the bustling city’s throughout  the states, from L.A to Vegas. They show the feel and look of the city’s in there Autumn/Winter Collection. My favourite pieces of the collection are the:

We Never Sleep Sweatshirt, which represents the fast paced night life of the city, matched with the skyline of Manhattan.

The Flown Led’s site perfectly shows of the brands style. Mixing British fashion with the style and inspiration of American cityscapes.  They show the time for both London and New York City in the corner, as one city sleeps one is busy and awake, which I feel matches perfectly with the “we never sleep” sweatshirt. Flown Led is becoming a fast popular, up and coming brand with new stockists and retailers joining the brand weekly.As well as, now being sold in France and Germany, and of course the UK.  They are also planning to release a women’s collection in the next year.

Seeing As People liked my doctor who design, I wanted to show you some previous designs I had come up with during College, As I was doing a textile course, I have created a skirt fabric made of a mixture of a materials symbolising the many different themes in alice in wonderland, such as the Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee rhyme, Cards, Idea of time. I also creted images such as rabbits and hearts which I put onto the skirt fabric. I included a photo of my own fabric design in my Fashion design to show how it could be used and its over all look. This was also my first attempt at using photo shop and a mouse to create the computer design, hopefully I’ll be getting a graphics tablet soon!

This is my design, that I came up with inspired by my love for doctor who!

Geek Chic!

As any one who has met me will probably tell you, I’m a bit odd and totally obsessed with Disney  sci-fi, anime and games. I have a great influence from these things. Today I was listening to Chameleon Circuit (a band that write songs about the television series Doctor Who) and I remembered I had bought some cyber-man earrings from a shop called Geek Chic, in Pokesdown. It was a lovely shop and for any one that is a true Geek like myself you will understand when you walk in, its like a sweet shop! Dresses with Daleks, necklaces of the doctor, Star wars and even comic book characters! So After listening to a few more songs, I became inspired to create a Doctor who themed outfit to go with with my earrings, I decided to base it on the David Tenants incarnation of the doctor as he truly is my favourite (So Far!) So I decided to go for a suit style dress, brown, blue with a red tie and white high tops!  I also added three blue strips to each as the Doctors suit is a pinstripe style and finally must have a Tardis Bag, because every girl needs a bag bigger on the inside.

 

My First Fashion Sketchbook

I have finally completed my sketchbook! I think it looks pretty good, although it still has alot of textile influences in it. I think its a good basis to start developing my own sketchbook style. I found it very difficult to not annotate as much as I used to have to do in my old textile sketchbook. However, I enjoyed being able to design garments through out my research and using it to develop my designs. I have created this video so you can see the entire of my hard work!
