The pallet of the rabbit hide reminded me of Katie Eary's A/W -10 MAN collection.
Two tone close up - Rich vibrent shades of coral greens, amber and the hint of red.
Bird's view of hide I went to the fur and leather exhibition. OMG put it this way I was in my glory. They were amazing!
I could not believe that this wonderful sight was just around the corner of my INDIGO stand.
From the fur and leather area I purchased a cream sea snake leather with stripe markings also a head to tail Cobra pelt which was a natural shade. My biggest bargin was the rabbit hide. Even that I am against fur, this single fur pieces alone was processed better that any other hides I have come across in the past.
I was influenced by the shades of the two tone green brown and red's. This reminded me of a alge growth. This hide itself caught many of the publics eyes from the distance. I am very much interested in using this hide as my colour story for my final collection.
This image from 1 of the shops reminded me of Alexander McQueen's A/W-09 for PUMA.( the overlay top) on the bottom image, Which I own.
Tybeck papered Hoody with vibrent shades of blues and creams
Close ups of the botton stand and collor. Shirt from Comme des Garcon
French knot tie.- I was inspired by this tie because it is amazing to know how much hard work gone into this knotting process for just 1 tie. This is very effective and nice.
In central Paris I went to a lad of designer shops, gathering information and recorded process of high end luxury fashion. These dresses from a show window reminds me of my fan pleat constructed shoulder pads for my collection 'Homo Sapiens'
below the tower. Central Paris, main attraction. Eiffel Tower. When arriving at Paris we were took onto a tour around famous sights.
I was more inspired by close ups on the tower for a more defined perspective. Most people took images of the tower from a far background view. But I had to fight off the cold determind to get the most breath taking views from my iphone, for that edge look.
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.
