Wish You Were At Topshop

As an avid fan of Dazed Digital, I'm so happy to promote Topshops latest event 'Wish you were at Topshop'.
There will be a four day event held at Topshop Liverpool, in which you can style and photograph your very own photoshoot using instagram for a chance to win £1000 worth of Topshop vouchers.
My favourite part of the event though, will be the talk from 'Dazed Digital' a website that I and many others avidly follow!
Hope to see everyone that has a love for the newest trends and the latest technology there !

1st-4th June 'Get Styled Up'

Captured Collection

I'm taking a little break from my final major project work (its 2.50 am and my deadlines at noon) to upload my final outfit for my 'Captured' brief.
I've created the skirt from 8 metres of negative film, steel and canvas material.
As well as the bra and PVC t-shirt, it's taken me numerous weeks and several tantrums but it's finally done..Now, it's time to get back to my sketchbook.

Lucy In Disguise Illustrations

As soon as I found out that Lucy In Disguise's first collection would be featured in Elle this month, I rushed to WH Smith to buy it.
Much to my delight the collection is full of silks, sheers and sequins; the perfect juxtapose for summertime glamour.
I've decided to illustrate by hand, my two favourite outfits from the collection in my sketchbook and share them with you.
I'll be posting more of my final project up here soon too!

Lomo Loco

As part of my final major project, I have decided to create some illustration posters to represent my theme.
My chosen theme is photography and film and I have looked alot into lomography, so naturally I have chosen to promote lomo in my posters!
I really need to start illustrating again, only four months until I set off to London to do illustration at LCF..eek!
P.s please ignore the awful shadows and general bad quality of the upload, my camera is dreadful!

Bee Magazine- Birds Shoot

The past month, I have had a glimpse at what it's like to work in the magazine industry.
My class at college have been given the task of creating, designing and publishing an 80 (or so) page, high fashion magazine.
I was given the role of fashion editor and as a group we came up with a few themes for photo shoots and articles.
The one below is styled and shot by me and is based on the Alfred Hitchcock film 'Birds'.
I'm really pleased with the outcome and my model Amy looked amazing!

If you are interested in attending our Bee Magazine launch party, please feel free to come along!

Barcelona Bar, Liverpool
Friday 6th may 6pm- 10.30pm

Billie J Does It Best.

There comes a time in fashion when you get a bit bored of the norm. You've seen enough mulberry alexas that you start to hate Chung herself and that 'tights and socks' thing is no longer cool but boreing.
It's then that you start to look into other industries to find style inspiration.
Admittedly, i'd not even heard of Billie J.D Porter until the 'Joy of Teen Sex' but recognised her from several scarily cool photos in Vice magazine.
Billie has the sort of style that shouldn't work , her look is usually grown out roots in a messy top knot along with ripped tights and a patterned shirt.
For someone who's still in her teens , Billie has written for NME, Vice and blogged for Platform ,as well as famously reporting on the teen sex show.
It's clear that with her abrupt attitude and extreme coolness that Billie doesn't seem like the easiest person to get along with.
But with close friends like Sky Ferreira and Mark Ronson, Who Cares?
