Alexander McQueen

The fashion world is in mourning today after news spread yesterday that the talented designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London flat. For me his work was highly inspirational and all I can say is what a great loss and send respect to his family and friends. I hope he has found some kind of peace and he will defiantly be remembered by all.

Hearts for Valentines

Heart Embroidered Cardigan Miss Selfridge, Heart Shape Glasses Asos, Heart Knickers Topshop, Heart Print Cut-out Dress New Look, Heart Print Tights Dorothy Perkins, Heart Earrings Accessorize, Heart Shoes Vivienne Westwood.

I'm not a big fan on Valentines day as I see it as a commercial way to make money. It makes single people unhappy and forces couples to spend ridiculous amounts of money on each other. I think if you love someone it should be on a day special to you both, not a day when everyone else is doing it! Where's the individuality to that relationship? Anyway despite this I do love all the heart prints and shapes that come out this time of year, so if you don't celebrate it but want something are my top of the hearts for Valentines.

Swarovski Crystal - House of Cats

I came across this animation for Swarovski Crystal recently and thought it had to be shared. I love the quirky animation where the cats really do look crystal-like! I actually want one because of the that's good advertising skills! However priced at $56 - $325 I don't really think its in my budget, being a poor student and all. Anyway, I hope you share the enthusiasm I did for them. And if you want to buy me one you can buy me one online here...I'll have Dianne please.

Developing Practice Project

So I've been pretty quiet on here recently. Thats because I have been working so hard on my last project. The project was about realising what we enjoy doing, developing skills and evaluating our own philosophy and what makes our work our own. My project was Entomology and Ornithology - A Insect and Bird study. The reason I studied them however, is not because I like them but the opposite...they both seem quite scary to me! I felt it would be interesting to study something that I have not had a lot of interest in before and have usually avoided.
For this project I decided to do a blog and a sketchbook as well as a final photoshoot and film promo, a lot of work but I'm pleased I pushed myself as I know I put my all into the development and final outcome.
The 13 photographs above are my final edited photos showing 7 pictures of the Bird styling and 6 pictures of the Insect styling.
Below is my film promo. If you want to have a look at my blog for this project go to this link - Entomology and Ornithology.
