A love of Relief printing.
When i am working and sketching designs, i am very passionate about what is on my designs and usually use Relief printing in my work. The whole process of creating shapes from my inspiration boards, tracing my design onto lino, working into it so then i can print on Fabric. Help me try and make my work - like many others distinctive. Luckily enough in my last year of secondary school, my work was shown at an art/school exhibition.
So this Year for our college fashion show, why not do more printing with a 1920's theme??
Ha! This time i really learned about construction of making garments and that printing is made for FLAT SURFACES not already sew darts on the front bodice/ almost 3D surfaces. It was turning out to Mission impossible. But lessons are always learned through the hard way.
About a month ago (ha!) I was out supporting a family friend who was organising a charity fashion show to raise money for cancer research. The event took place in their town's local social club with local boutiques and self employed companies.
The show started off with a young, talented singer before the models came on to show off their clothes.
I wanted the black and white skull shirt! Please
*Some of the clothes are from a little boutique :Vanity Inverurie
The overall night was a success and was very proud for our friend on her achievement (even managed to grab a quick photo of her in the mayhem.)
- The night was a huge success raising over £2,900.
What happened to regular updates, photos and posts?? Failed miserably.
The past month or so has been none stop, running on lack of sleep, coffee, mars bars and banana's - such a healthy lifestyle I lead.
Fashion shows, gigs, Summer music Festivals, House sitting, Working and the currently in process of moving out.
