Youth of today

Today's shoot was inspired by youth of today, with ripped up denim, rolled up ciggaretes and statement beanies there's always a statement today youth is trying to shuv in our faces. Clashing camo, cheap chains, shabby shirts and faux fur today's society sets thier own trends, wearing what they want and who the want without giving a toss.

I wear what I want when I want, even if that is a PVC crop top in winter blizzards, that's just the youth of today.

Valentino A/W illustration

Ive been playing around with collages, creating tones and unique textures, then bringing them to life using photoshop- changing the colours to contrast more, adding rouges to create a sexier tone in the lips and using curves to mix the illustrations colours up. This illustration is based on Vakentino A/W with the outline of the model faded in the background, the Victorian style roses to complement the theme of the collection and one of the catwalk pieces brought to life in the middle, all added with my personal touches. 
Before- all put together by hand 
After- then scanned onto the Mac, taken into Photoshop and brought to life
Hope you all like!

Today I decided to dress as a Scottish grunge fairy, the local charity shop has all the best items! Tartan is in so how could I not buy this £2 bargin. My right legs looks odd and I seriously need to loose the arm flab but this was a good look, dress up with heels dress down with boots and a leather jaket. I will forever be a grunge girl.

What I wore yesterday 
*GAP vintage dungarees, Brick lane Vintage boutique* Rose head piece, Her Curious Nature*

 Yesterday I was traveling London all day, visiting Brick lane and Somerset House to See London Fashion Weekend. I opted for the baggy casual denim with boots look and jazzed it up with thin tights and my velvet rose hairpiece by Her Curious Nature. These photos where after a long day traveling and shopping, Elle was the best part of the day, free Benefit makeup and 12 Elle magazines throughout the year for £15!
How was your Saturday? 

Browns Labels For Less

Browns Labels For Less
Yesterday at London Fashion Weekend the brand Browns Labels For Less was lovely and happy enough for me to try on some of their extraordinary embroided jackets. It was such a privilege trying and photographing myself in these jackets. My fave jacket was of course the vintage inspired leather jacket, it was so warm and such a perfect fit, the tassels on the sleeve gave the jacket that country vintage feel and look.  Being a student the jacket was obviously £1,300 out of my £40 budget but the fact I wore the jackets gave me a huge smile anyway!

The AW13 Trend Show

Stylist Pandora Lennard, a former fashion editor at Tank Magazine and 'O', the Observer's fashion supplement, Pandora regularly styles fashion shows, looks books and private film and music industry clients.
Back To Nature- Designers including Erdem, Mary Katranzo, Michael van der Ham and Mulberry all went back to nature in their AW13 collections. Expect camouflage, fur, feather prints, tree prints, autumnal colours, rich browns and mossy greens.
Pretty In Pink- Influenced by the 80s film Pretty in Pink, the AW catwalks featured pink in all its hues as a big colour story. From Antipodium and John Rocha to PPQ Roksanda llincic and Simone Rocha, as you can see this key look is across a range of fabrics from sheer to textual.
Shape Up- Last season’s big geometric look continues adding colour and excitement to winter. Designers including Holly Fulton, House of Holland, Matthew Williamson and Temperley went retro featuring a rage of psychedelic 70s wallpaper style prints.  

Toni & Guy Catwalk Hair
Hot Trend Super Long Locks- Mused by model Kristen McMenamy and adolescents with hair that had never been cut- slightly gothic; the look has a medieval undertone within the texture. Plaiting longer lengths created this and then undoing them to create a broken waved finished. 

The show was such an amzing expierence and exciting to see what trends I can minipulate into my own look and style this Autumn/ Winter, note to one self; must purchase more Faux Fur!
