I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all about an exciting new project I'm involved in at school. Eve Archer approached me, along with a few others, to design three or so looks which will be showcased in a PSA fashion show. Now, I know a PSA event may not sound like the most vogue place to present one's first, shall we say, mini collection, but I'm just so delighted to have somewhere which for I must make clothes, as I am usually rather slovenly when it comes to it! Although, after the initial elation, the panic began to set in: having a structured task means deadlines, which means a little bit of stress, sadly. However, I mustered up the motivation and got cracking and here is what I have to show for it so far...
Despite the fact this may just seem like a pile of material, underneath it all is so much more... But I'm not going to give it all away just yet mostly because it is all half done and wouldn't look like much anyway! I had no problem finding inspiration for my first two outfits, but I seemed to develop designers block when it came to, what I hoped would be my grande finale, third look. It took a while, but I finally I managed to come up with, what I hope will be, a fabulous final look. After showing my mother my first two pieces, she noted the semblance to the Jil Sander S/S11 collection and I realised that, especially with my third look, I must have been subconsciously influenced!
