N= No.21

No.21 Spring Summer 2014
I love feminine masculine trend for dressing and Alessandro Dell’acqua has it down to a fine art! With a mainly monochrome colour palette and wearable classic shapes such as, blazers, sweaters, shirts and skirts with an added element to them; gloss, sequins, and  sheer for evening added an element of glamour and sophisticated edge to the spring summer collection from No.21.

We even saw a reworked and updated Hawaiian shirt which was given a new lease of life with a ruffle-hemmed dress, palm prints and wave formations roamed further across shirts and skirts. Maybe not the most colourful Spring Summer collection but a great collection, which is what I was looking for.

Body Adornment- Art of Journeys

Line Art by Rachael Sadler
Have you ever been stuck in traffic, delayed on a train on stuck on a bus thinking about all the time your wasting on the journey? Of course you have, so have I, so I decided to document my journey’s by drawing them. Not in the traditional way, but by letting the movement of the journey draw itself. I used a mix of different paper and ink, my favourite outcome was achieved using blotting paper and fast flowing black ink pens.

From the drawings I also recorded the snippets of conversations I overheard to give a sense of surroundings and a the piece of work its own voice.

Finally I then recreated my favourite journeys, 6 in total, into different large scale wire and button body adornments or living art. They all were designed to link in together. Originally designed as body adornment but now displayed as art on my wall.. I love it but would love to know what you think?


Beautiful Proenza Schouler NYFW

Proenza Schouler NYFW 2013
Muted tones of greys and white came 1st, with enough different textured fabrics you could shake a stick at, then came black mixed in to give an amazing collection of wearable and beautiful pieces… My eyes are so happy they have seen this beauty I’m going to stop rabbiting on so you can see and enjoy the images of Pronenza Schouler collection, that was shown at New York Fashion Week, in piece.

Monochrome Monday

Balmain Spring 2013
Monday might be grey but I prefer Black & White, today I am going for a Monochrome look, which is featuring quite heavily in spring adverts. 
Monochrome Fashion 2013
I am wearing a vintage black leather jacket from Ada’s Attic, White waffle material oversized men’s t-shirt, Black Velvet Leggings, mega thick boot socks & of course my all-time favourite Doc Martens. To add just a touch of colour I’m wearing Red lipstick & a hand knitted hat (by my sister Kate) made from recycled Silk Sari’s. I love wearing monochrome outfits; they are so easy to do.
Top tip mix textures and add just a flash of colour even if it’s just nail varnish!

I love this look from Balmain’s Spring ad, an effortless look that could be worn day or night.
