Recent still lifes

Hey! For some reason my photos won't rotate sorry, I've tried rotating them before uploading but they just seem to upload like this so my apologies!!

The first drawing is of a head stand wrapped in plasic, the purpose is to show the objects contours but not give away what it is, so it makes you almost want to open it and see whats inside, like when you get a present:)

This is close ups of the object created using water-soluble pens

Lastly a skeleton drawing I drew whilst in my still life session.

Carven S/S 12- Paris

When I saw the thumbnail of this collection, I was straight away drawn to the fluidness and shape of the leather skirt. The collection is made up of body con/pencil skirts and circle skirts with a fitted bodice.. I really like the layers within the bodices, how they have exposed certain areas to reveal the layer underneath..

This yellow/mustard outfit is my favourite day dress from the all the fashion weeks. The knitted layer underneath adds texture without being predictable, I would love to OWN THIS DRESS!!!

As the collection gets under way, bold ethic prints start to appear in linear patterns. The cut out detail on the left hand side dress reminds me of Louis Vuitton's collection, the 50's dresses where they had a bit of the bodice cut out, showing off the "womanly" figure..

The right photo has an AMAZING fabric print, I'm in love with it!! I think this will really influence my work for my textile project at college....
Thankyou for reading xxxx

Bringing out the jumpsuit!

The sun came out and so did my jumpsuit :) Its from H&M and was designed for the charity Water aid..
I really like jumpsuits, as they allow the look to be casual yet can be dressed up by heels and accessories

I also LOVE this jumpsuit from ASOS!

I love the geek chic feel and the shiny bow against the thick dull fabric......

Thank you xxx
