A small review of the pop up shop in London

Small but its something!

As i may not have mentioned before that myself and my year group have had the great opportunity to be involved in a pop up shop in Camden, London. Very exiting!
So we have had the challenge to stock and run the shop for 3 weeks and it has been going very well! The opening night was a very fun experience, full of people and an exiting buzz of London! Nothing to do with alcohol...

This was an experiences i would gladly do again!! I hope you like the photos!
Our lovely sponsors!!!

With Holga

Many years ago I got a Holga camera and was always to scared to use it but now the fear has gone and I have been trying it out. This is what i have made. I like the variety of colour and light and dark but most of all that you have no idea what you will get!

I am going to have a photo shoot this Friday and will use my Holga as the 2nd camera and the photographer has this really snazzy thing that is massive. But no digital! I love the softness and grain and layers you get with film.... Let’s hope we catch some nice images and not just rolls of blank! Ha!

Also the two hilled images are from my home (Orkney) and then the middle image is from Berlin... You cant really see whats going on but hey i like it!

A bit of print

The Camden project print ideas... So I wanted to mix the graffiti I had seen round and about the area. A busy pattern to be seen obscured by my white chiffons and silks. This is one of many that i had thought about, original painted on A1 then altered through Photoshop, no thanks to the Scanners!
This would be the main patter to be repeater.

Here is an idea of what I would be looking for... I think it looks great!

Something that i have always wanted to do and happens to fit with the design brief is to do a repeat screen print....So that's what I have done for my 2nd garment.

This is the Artwork on plastic for exposing the screen.

This is the screen after exposing...

I wanted to print onto uneven dyed fabric, so here it is. Hand dyed for all the LOLZ! :)
Final fabric will be posted soon!

Final out come making its way to COMPLETION!

The start was a struggle! I really wanted to make a garment with as little seams as possible and to make it MASSIVE! So combining these two elements makes for an annoying table buddy... haha! I needed a lot of space and my friend were very kind and tolerant!

So as you can see its for all the boys and girls! I think it looks great on both these dude!!

 Just a few wee finishing touches and we are ready to rock!!! 2nd garment here we come!

So anyways... no more gifs! some real work!

A project for University is to create a look for Jaggy Nettle and so here is what I have thought sofar...

I have an idea of the final line up... what look to choose though!
Some grumpy looking lady's here for you, they have the true model attitude! haha

Time well spent....

Our Christmas day banter....
