New techniques! prints! and fabulous outings!

What I have Been Up To Recently

Fashion Shows

So, this is just a quick blog post to say what I have been up to over the past few months!

Recently, I attended the Fashion and design Exhibition at Event City in Manchester, and even though it was a small turn-out, I really enjoyed my weekend there. 

Heres a quick snap of the fashion show!

This collection was designed by EUSTRATIA

The other collections included street-wear, casual-wear, and lingerie. 

It was a great weekend, where I got to meet some talented designers, and eyed-up some very nice clothes and prints.

Here is one of the many cute jewellery designs from the event.

I really love the colour and shape of this broach :)

Dark Room Work

Recently, I've been getting more into photography, and the idea of dark-room image capturing, which has greatly inspired my work. I love the use of shadows and shapes, and I have managed to capture some great forms to work with.

Here are a few of my 'first attempts' to give you an impression of what I mean.

I am really loving this new technique!

My Recent Work

Here are a few of my designs from over the past few months, that I have created for my portfolio and interviews.

I have also recently designed the front cover backdrop for Ya El Mercurio (Sept edition 2014) Magazine who are based in Chile. I really enjoyed this project, as the magazine was very fun to work with, and I enjoy designing print with a hand-painted feel.Which I got to do!

Here is the Front Cover!

My Summer Inspirations

Summer Inspirations

Here are some images I have sourced from the WGSN blog, Trend-land, and Elle Decoration. These are just a few of the images I liked whilst researching trends and colour. Hope you like them too ^^

What I have been up to recently...

The Summer Season Is Upon Us!


I know I've not posted anything recently, and I thought I'd get back into my blog.

So Here goes...

After I came home from working at a fabric manufacturers in Mumbai for three months I decided that I really need to update my portfolio and my cv.
Recently I've been getting into bold geometrics, and the different qualities they can have as designs. Here are some that have inspired me recently.

Over the past few weeks I have been updating and adjusting my portfolio, as I want to show the different qualities and textures for this season, and the next. So I have been designing new geometrics, and florals in different colour-ways to complete my collections.

Here are some snapshots of the florals I've been working on recently...

I have also recently been doing some photographic greetings card designs on the side, below:

Over the next few weeks I will be working on a photo-shoot backdrop for a womens' magazine in Chile, which is very exciting, and I cant wait to get stuck in!

I will hopefully keep you all posted on how things go on in the next month! 

Have a lovely Summer! xoxo
