from here

I started University recently, and unsurprisingly enough, I switched to Architecture. I really think that my first few lectures in Engineering made me realize how much I love art, design and fashion. I do think I'm a very visual person, and I really think about what I see. I also believe that it is through these visual elements that we express ourselves and who we are. Hence my love for Fashion and alas, this blog.

Today I spent a day fooling around to the likes of Foster the People and Flight Brigade, trying on all sorts of wacky outfits and items of clothing I simply forgot I had. What I find helps too is creating mood boards out of magazine cutouts.  Experiment as much as you can with what you have, you have no idea what wonderful outfits you can create.

If I could sum up my style in one (or two) words, it would be 'mix-and-match' (oh well, that's three words...) . An amalgamation of styles and bits of things I like. In fact, I see this quite a bit, especially in street styles. When you see what people wear outside, it's different. Unlike a runway collection, I do think that one is more free, because there isn't the need of a theme or 'coherence' if you must. You dress as you please.

Looks from Stockholm Street Style- Caroline's Mode, The Sartorialist and editorial look from Fashion Rogue.

The Preamble... or lack thereof.

Hi! This is my blog :). I got round to doing this as a first, early step towards my Systems of knowledge Project. It's a project we have to complete for our A-levels and which is due in October. I thought something like this blog needed time to build up, so here it is.

Things which inspired this work:

Victorian era dresses.
The film 'The Duchess'.
Venetian masks.
