The Spring 2011 runway is just amazing!
I'm loving the cutwork and different materials through the collection...

'freedom of flight'

Starting my final major project and drawing to the end of my uni course this year now!
My concept is 'freedom of flight' - wings, flocks, aerial views, jets, hurricanes, anything which moves through air.

Rowan Mersh

Have just finished my dissertation (hooray!)
It was a case study of this guy - truly inspirational sculptor who works mainly with stretch jersey in these series'
Unexpected materials (toothpicks and CDs inside!)
and the way he uses the female body as a frame for his sculptures makes them instantly couture fashion material!
Enjoy! x
