Hey guys - thank you for your kind messages, I'm back now!
First off, here's another article I wrote for Amelia's. It's on a jewellary designer and I found it incredibly interesting to research. Hope you like! And actually read... ;)

Secondly I'm so pleased because I had a pre-planned idea that I wanted to do for my textiles exam piece...and luckily the brief we've been given includes a 'stimuli' that I can use!
The stimuli: Illusion
My pre-planned idea: inspired by my favourite Vogue issue - Christmas 2008 (The 'Fantasy' Issue). [As well as a few others such as March 2009]
I wanted to look at my favourite photographer Tim Walker as a starting point.
[who shot the Roald Dhal photoshoot for the 'Fantasy' Issue]

Then I hoped to explore other areas that linked to the idea of 'fantasy,' such as the bunny ears at LV. My final piece will most likely be some kind of costume...!
So so pleased. I'll add some posts of my designs & work if you like?!

MOLLYKT said...

okay, literally hit me, but i can't do this sunday as i stupidly forgot i've got a whole weekend of french conferences/study days at school which makes me feel a bit suicidal.
so, the point being, unless you want to meet up after 5 on sunday, i don't think i'll be able to get into town :/
i'm so sorry, i was so looking forward to seeing you!
if not, we definately have to meet up next weekend. i am 100% free as my teacher can't possibly lock me in school anymore!


Rose said...

Sounds amazing :) I love Tim Walker too: his photo of Lily Cole in India is so beautiful and I love his pastel cats. This shoot is definitely my favourite though!

MOLLYKT said...

I always look at the briefs with pre-planned ideas too, hahaha!
I did a whole photography/art project last year based around fairy tales, nursery rhymes and art interpretations of literature so if you want any artist names, give me a shout! x
