Be Right Back!

I already haven't been posting this month, but these two weeks there's no chance I'll be able to do so either. I'll be back after the 20th of June, which is when I have my Design Review (eep!).
In the mean time you can check out my tumblr, 'cause I have been and probably will continue posting there for the time being. :)

Creating a Lookbook

So in one of our sessions at the Fashion Foundation course we had to create a lookbook out of Magazine cuttings. It was quite a fun activity really. I love flipping through magazines and all the editorials and some of the beautiful adverts.

What I went for as a theme was that same 'grungy with a contrast' sort of feel that I had in my mood board. This, though, had a more relaxed tone. The overall feel of the Lookbook is a hybrid of pretty scruffiness paired with grungy.


 



 




Having done these works, which are rather easy to do, I'm thinking of doing some kind of cut/paste job on the walls of my room. The thing is, it's already filled with other posters of my favourite films, books and music. So the problem is that I like it a lot already and putting everything down is a sorta like a big and drastic step to take haha. I might put down a few of my less favourite parts and fill those, though.

I'm off. I'm reading up about Fashion Design Portfolios and such as I'm working on mine. Also, if this semester goes well, I might be off to London in Summer for a short course at the London College of Fashion! Fingers crossed. :)

Moustache, really?

Is it just me, or have I really been seeing a lot of this:


?

Throughout the Fashion world, this moustache is cropping up in a lot of places. Designs which incorporate this symbolic piece of facial hair (which admittedly doesn't sound very 'chic') vary in a multitue of ways. 

From top left: ASOS Jumper,  Le Moustache tee, Moustache Necklace, ASOS Earrings, Moustache Nails.


Despite the tacky and controversial (I still can't decide my stand on facial hair :P) nature of this design, it does turn out to be quite the quirky-cute look. The curved lines, little flicks and the plain black colour give the design a certain aesthetic beauty. Overall I do believe that in it's simplicity, the design in fact has potential to be 'chic'. It does depend on the kind of look you're trying to achieve, and I see it as leaning more towards  strictly casual attire.

A particular moustache-related novelty I'm enjoying is men's tops with moustache taglines. Like these:

And also my personal favourite moustache tagline:

The heart of life is good.


I'm a big fan of colour.
Just in case you couldn't tell.


This is a sketch I did a while ago and had completely forgotten. It was inspired from a Matthew Williamson Design Blair Waldorf was wearing in an episode of Gossip Girl.
