Long time!


It's been such a long time since I updated this blog! University has really taken up all of my time this year. I'm back for summer now and with nothing to do until I move to New York in December, I'm sure I'll be able to keep this up better.

I've felt a little uninspired by clothes recently, I think that's mainly because all of my energy has been going into my uni work and focusing on my portfolio to get placements. I can't afford to buy magazines and with no time to check out fashion blogs I feel like I've really lost touch with things. But I'm going to get back into it! I've had my tumblr page running again for the last few weeks and just scrolling through my dash has inspired me so much. I also have a new Instagram and not many followers, so please check that out!

This year at uni has been hectic, I've done five separate projects, had work shown at the trade show SpinExpo in Shanghai, won a knitted interiors competition with Rowan Wool, knitted three garments and numerous half garments, and put together another.

This is my final garment for an eco project. We didn't have to knit for this as it was more about the fashion and drape aspect. It's made from a tea dyed jersey, recycled fabric, and the pattern cutting technique called subtractional pattern cutting (from Julian Roberts).

I'm going to get back to outfit posts soon, I need to get some fabric to make a home studio as I can't be bothered to do location shoots all the time. My remote shutter for my camera has broken too so I need to get another one before I can do outside shoots. 

Anyway, sorry for the long post. Keep posted for outfit posts and more of my work!
