Final Major Project - Art Foundation

I really have been an awful blogger recently but I have an excuse - my FMP deadline last Monday. I am now officially on my 5 month summer holiday until I head off to Nottingham Trent in September! Hopefully this means I'll have loads more time to actually blog and make more of my own clothes (which it feels like I haven't done in ages!). 
Anyway, so the reason for my lack of time is below. The theme for this project was Fragility, so I basically looked into fragile materials and fabrics, as well as into the 'fragile mind'. I ended up focusing a lot on skin and bruises in my research (I know, it's quite disgusting...!) and is mainly the idea behind my final piece. I wouldn't say I'm particularly pleased with my outcome (mainly due to my laziness and the fact I know I could have done sooo much better) but it still fits my concept and works well with the rest of my sketchbook work.

Coachella Wish List

I've been so busy recently and despite the fact that I have loads of new outfits to blog, I really haven't felt up to taking any photos. So instead of an outfit post, I just decided to create a 'What I'd wear to Coachella...' type wish list full of some of my favourite festival Topshop pieces...

How has it been 2 weeks since my last post!? It's flown by so fast. As I mentioned in my previous post, I visited the big Topshop in Oxford Circus on my birthday and this was the dress that I got. I don't actually own an official 'going out' dress and I was off out the following weekend so I couldn't resist buying this. I found it in the petite section which is perfect because I find being so short (5"4) a lot of dresses come out quite long on me and I always have to adjust them. I love the mesh panels and it kind of reminds me of some of the dresses from PLT.
