Toile for the architecture

It has been quite a while since I updated here. Easter holiday has flew by, and the term has started again. Only the second day in and we have received two new briefs already. The first one is the usual competition brief, this year, we are asked to illustrate a design for the London Fashion WeekEnd tote bag, inspired by the theme ‘Only in London’. I have vague idea of what I want to do, but my illustrations are not great, plus my style is not the usual Tanya Ling or David Downton… so we’ll see how it turns out.

And the second project, was quite a shock actually, because first years usually don’t get 2 projects, but this one is for a boy who was stabbed in East London in August, 2008. He was due to enroll in BA fashion design with Print at CSM the same time as us, so we are creating and DIY-ing T-shirts for money raising, for the medical attention he is needed from now on, because he is paralyzed from neck down.

Anyway, enough about that, I just realised that I haven’t uploaded any photos from my Jersey Project yet, so here it goes. We had to create 6 looks in 3 weeks time, inspired by anything, but mainly to create a sillouhette. However one of the key word was body conscious, so I decided to play with that. I chose Santiage Calatrava’s Architecture because they are just amazing! And I made 7… had some extra time 🙂

So both I and Aiko modeled. Please excuse my terrible modeling 🙂
