Bits and bobs

This week I took quite a lot of photos for my Fashion blog, and I thought I'd show you my favourites.

A Topshop Crop Top :)

Spike necklace from Regal Rose. Love lovity love love.

Head over heels (heels? get it?) with these shoes.
They're ASOS AVA booties.

Cool Ear Cuff. I'm getting another similar one from ASOS though 'cause I really liked it too. 

Oh, I love these shorts.

Part of a little activity we did in the Fashion Foundation course I attended last March.

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. :)

Free Fallin'

Last week I carried out a Photo shoot with Rebecca for my project. It was loads of fun :).

I must also say that I learned a lot about Fashion Photography. Not only about technicalities like poses, lighting and angles, but also how these affected the overall atmosphere and "message" in your work. "A picture is worth a thousand words" ; it's true. Every little twist of the head, flicker of an eyelid or the bend of an arm contributes to the aesthetic quality of the shot. I also noted that a Fashion Photographer can be quite the artist. This is in the sense that s/he uses settings, figures, lighting and all the elements around him to convey a message, a perception, maybe in a way you never thought about before.

 The main theme chosen here was focused around the investigation of how the punk-rock subculture affected mainstream fashion. With their edgy accessories and haircuts, attire and bright but grungy feel.

Overall I think that this activity was valuable and highly educating. More than anything, being behind the camera makes you see things in a way you probably wouldn't in your everyday routine.
