  Jacket sculpture so far (probably finished) for project ‘Materialism’. Made with duck tape, plastic bags, metallic paint and black acryilc paint. Mirror pieces and beads for embellishments. The main idea behind this sculpture was to use undesirable materials not typically associated with fashion garments, and use them to create a desirable, appealing garment to […]

Does the brand name overpower the materials used? Artists Lernert and Sander’s sculptural installation ‘Last Season’ features a collection of re-raveled balls of wool originally from designer sweaters such as Prada and Celine, that didn’t sell that season. Although the end result could still be considered beautiful aesthetically, the process and context implies a downgrade […]

  Spontaneous trip to Sheffield’s Meadowhall caused an instinctive trip to Zara. Platform track ankle boots. I’ve been wanting a pair with cleated soles for a while so this was an impulse buy when I saw these in the sale.

Feeling creative with my eyes today; dotted eyeliner.

Being inspired by my sudden love of all things metallic, I decided to get some metallic fabric spray paint and transform my black leather jacket to silver. I think my obsession with shiny things began at Frieze fair London, when I saw Zhan Wang’s sculpture ‘artificial rock’. It just looked so immaculate. This lead me […]

Dr Martens shoes, in black wave leather. I like these better than the boots, they look slightly more formal/ everyday and can be styled to look quite cute too. The black wave leather gives a subtly unique aesthetic to this classic design.

Continuing with the metallic theme, adding an abstract influence exploring the paint elements and process rather than figurative representation.

Such a beautiful array of colour. A sheer top with blue/green and pink tones when the light hits it.

Decline of Western Civilization by Joel Morrison. This metallic sculpture instantly inspired me at Frieze London due to the variety of textures and contrasting metallic. Clothes and fashion can be introduced to art – fashion as art. A studded jacket is given a further rock edge by styling it with a silver metallic. It has been […]

Leathers in London

The Victoria and Albert museum displayed two photographs in particular that became most apparent.  The first photograph displays ‘Café in Lima’ by Irving Penn 1948. The second shows Kevin Lear’s ‘Ted Couples’ photographed over 20 years later in 1974. Both photographs being fashion statements of the time, show diversity in composition, class and composure of […]
