Here are some amazing pair of freaking 'stingray shoes' at the fashion east studio in London. When I was being interviewed I just went in a glare, eyeing up these wonderful made shoes for a designer for London fashion week S/S in September.
Oh and by the way I did get the intern but not in the office"thank god". They are going to put me through backstage in September working along side menswear designers for fashion week.
I got to see many designers collection, mainly womenswear on the rakes at the studio including Holly Fluton.
Underneath is images that are very personal to me. They reflected my journey made in just 5 month's. Some images my be random, but to me are treasures which I will always remember when finishing my final degree :(
Katie Eary placement
Alexander McQueen studio's
Company magazine Competition
.............If I can do all of this in just 4-5 months, then so can you. believe in yourself push boundaires and have fun!
I feel at home when I come here. I have gathered all my inspiration here for my final menswear collection. I visited this place in February - March just after visiting studio G, just before the huge snow storm
I recieved a text from Katie Eary about fashion east 'a major catwalk production' who have started the career of Katie Eary herself, Holly Fulton and Basso / Brooke, giving students a chance to be part of them.
Fashion East is a non-profit organisation set up by The Old Truman Brewery in 2000. Each season they give young designers (selected by a panel of leading industry figures) a bursary, catwalk show-production, PR support and expert advice to help them launch their labels- amazing haaaaa
A few weeks back I got stingray leather goods made up for my fashion show to go with the garments. Well they arrived well than planed. The belts are amazing I though I would get some belts that had the white spine showing, so that this fit in with the collection.
My hand wallet is nice with open appartments - Cards, cash and zipper.
Final year of studying BA-(HONS) in Fashion/Textile at Colchester School of Art & Design. The course so far has allowed me to adapted myself to many forms developing an imaginative, innovative approach towards garments. This has lead to the relization of specializing menswear.
Inspired by nature- animals, plants also science, architecture and the future, on how we nature our planet to suit our needs. My current collection A/W- 11 'HOMO SAPIENS' is inspired by human revolution on how humans adapt to modern life. Charles Darwin once said, "Its not about progression, its about adapting". People might say we have stopped evolving, but I feel we are still changing, adapting to our enviroment.
I gained work placement with Katie Eary, who has really inspired me. Eary gave me the insight into the industry, further enriching my appreciation of high end fashion.
I Love London fashion week because it is the only country that is not scared of creating new refined garments that are so unique. London is to be for me, it is known for talented designers such as Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, Katie Eary and Gareth Pugh.
