Premier Vision - Paris Feb 2011

Last week I worked on the Amanda Kelly Design studio stand, in the Indigo section of Premier Vision in Paris!

The week was so amazing! From the experience of assisting and showing the collection to international fashion buyers and designers, to the food, wine, laughter, sights and sounds of Paris! I learnt so much from the team and loved spending the week with them.... a really lovely group of people :)

Here are some shots from the show

 Below are shots of the amanda kelly design studio stand and the team showing groups from the collection of prints and embroideries.....

final major project

My final major project for my final collection on university course BA(Hons) Textile Design (Mixed Media Textile) is blossoming nicely!

From sketchbook to making, I'm now sourcing materials, paper, feathers, fabrics and trims to experiment with sculpturally.

Here's some of the outcomes so far.....

Julia Kennedy shoot

I have found a new love in Julia Kennedy, fashion photographer.
This shoot especially, I love the exaggerated makeup, bottom lashes, colour and grainy quality of the images. 
Very moody and seductive. 

 Love the draping layers falling from the headpiece

 This has got to be my favourite of the images, the red is so striking, letting just enough face show to entice the viewer. Just beautiful!
