sooo the last few weeks have been MEGA! finished Uni forever - TERRIFYING! Went for a small holiday with my divas to sunny Spain and then returned home to find several EXCITING emails for future job prospects and styling collaborations. Lets just say i cannot wait until the end of June as this is going to be MASSIVE! Tonight is also the private view of my degree show that is open to the public from tomorrow onwards which is all very exciting although i really can't wait for the FINAL graduate fashion show in the Dovecot on the 24th of June. It is going to be THRU THA ROOF!!!! If you still havent got tickets for the Dovecot fashion show there are still a small number available to buy here.
Above are a few of the previously unseen images from my shoot with Barker & Mclean. I forgot how much i loved the first image from when we decided to go fashion bombing around Tesco whilst being chased by security guards. More images from the shoot can also be seen at The Dovecvot exhibition opening on the 21st of June!

Just a quick post as i am farrrrr too busy just now frantically finishing portfolio and getting ready for the degree show. Earlier in the week i took part in a press call for the University with a little shoot organised by the picture editor of the Herald. Basically the day was hilarious from the beginning as one disaster happened after the other also due to the fact Anna, Athif and i were all on set together, all equally as sleep deprived and shooting at the top of a mountain in torrential rain! Which just added to the hilarity of the day. Anyway here are some sneaky photos that i took off my blackberry. My garments were worn by the absolutely amazing LAUREN TEMPANY! Lauren has walked for Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Miu Miu and Nicole Farhi therefore it was a bit overwhelming for her to be modelling pieces from my collection!

At long last i can post my graduate film online!!! The film was so much fun to shoot driving around to different locations dressed like crazed VOODOO ZOMBIE'S. We shot 19 different mini films to get all the footage we needed to create the final cut. Thank you so much to my twins Sara Preston and Emma Noble for keeping the energy alive on set all day. And a special thank you to Emma for the final edit of the film! This girl has MAD SKILLZ and will go places a definite name for the future having previously worked alongside Tim&Barry and Dontwatchthat.tv she is currently producing lots of fantastic graduate fashion films alongside her own work.
For more of Emma's films check out her Vimeo.
I was so excited to see Kevin Kramps name on the ITS finalists page this year! I have followed his knit wear for a couple of years now and absaloutly fell in love with his Central St Martins graduate collection! Kramp is a knitwear designer recognized internationally for his sophisticated high-concept work, including innovative exploration of shape and beautiful use of colour, pattern, stitch technique, and luxury fiber.
Kramp's work has now been featured in international fashion and style publications in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, Africa, Japan, Australia, and the US, and he is the recipient of several grants and awards for his creative work. And now is a well deserved finalist in one of the most prestigious international fashion competition's running - International Talent Support! Fingers crossed for him! I cannot wait to see what he produces in the future!
