Style Icon...

I have always loved Helena Bonham Carter, loving the characters she plays in films from witches, to queens to a monkey in Plant of the Apes. She is by far my favourite actress, mother, role model and star in the world. I can't quite gush about her enough. Her attitude towards stereotypes and what people think of her is amazing, setting an example to all young girls to do what they want to do rather than being told what to do. Do what makes you happy. Intelligent, quirky and funny. It also helps that she is beautiful too!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw her on the cover of this months Vogue! Her porcelain skin and dark hair are to die for and she looks like such an English rose. Not looking like her age, she is every part of class and sophistication. Love the vintage style photo shoot, fascinator hats, dark brows and red lips!

GFW Set Up...

So the time has come to showcase our work at Graduate Fashion Week and I couldn't be more nervous or excited. It has come around so quick & I don't feel like I've had time to think, with the photo shoots, videos happening etc. I am glad that is coming to an end as I don't think I can muster up anything more to give at the moment but I am also sad that it is ending and that is 4 years of my life gone and we'll be going our separate ways. I am excited for the next stage of my life though, something new to look forward to!

Setting up the stand was a good experience, got to see the whole class's work coming together, laying it out in a way to invite people to come and have a look and to see everyone's hard work finished. Also to spy on the other uni's work and to see what they have been up to. As we include textiles on our course we had to cater for everyone's work to shine out against the other universities. I think by having textiles, it gives us a different edge even though it is GFW. Most of the time things can go either way, interiors, fashion so you can't rule anything out. Everyone's work looked amazing & you can tell people's personalities have come out in their work.

We have kindly been sponsored by Offkut who gave us all of our furniture we've used. I really want some of their lights!
