After falling in love with her s/s 11 collection and her latest capsule collection for Topshop; I am now bordering on obsession with her a/w12 collection! I love the photographic element to the designs and feel this is something which I could investigate myself. My favourite has to be the maze print dress...amazing!
Topshop, Nick Knight and Karlie Kloss.
Just thought I would add a post about my inspiration for this week... Topshop's latest video by Nick Knight which celebrates Topshop's involvement within the British fashion industry. I love the video and all it represents...it shows that British designers are as influential as ever, plus I have found a new obsession... Mary Katrantzou.

These are pages from my recent sketchbook based on the future...looking at many different artists/photographers/designers to influence a final print collection that will be manipulated into a piece of wearable art. The other image is a A2 drawing page using different weights of pen to create a layered effect.
|Charity shop find of the day!|
|Pinning the pleats to see how it looks on the body...|
|Going crazy with box and regular pleats!!|
|Altering the placement of the sections...I like the neckpiece.|
|I like this one... maybe needs another section!|
|Perfect! All i need now is to add the denim waistband to make the back strap.|
Last week I took part in a "deconstruction reconstruction" workshop, whereby we had to source a garment which reflected my theme (futuristic) and reconstruct it into either samples for my project or another garment. The workshop went really well i was able to to demonstrate pleating skills i had learned in earlier workshops and create this futuristic style top!

"Great Scot" construction project...inspired by hunting and rural Scotland I used macrame to integrate leather, yarns and suede lace. I hand dyed jersey to create my garment front. Happy with the result but felt restricted due to the lack of print work in this project!
