Found this little number while I was flicking through a pile of French Vogues from the 80's & 90's. I remember the days when I actually got a tight granny perm done at the hairdressers so I could brush my hair out like this.. Why? I'm not too sure, I've tried to get rid of all evidence this ever happened
Today has been quite exciting because it was my first day with my new intern Ella. The weather has been horrid but we've spent the day in my old college library, Leeds Art, sifting through loads of old Vogues then onto having a lovely coffee with a ridiculous amount of sugar, making me completely wired for about half an hour while we were hunting for fabrics..
We'll be starting on making samples of pockets, collars and cuffs tomorrow which sounds quite tedious but should be lots of fun! I'm on the hunt for someone who can knit and would like to help with my collection.. If you are interested or know anyone who would be up for it then drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully I should be getting a lovely industrial 5 thread overlocker, button holer and buttoner (two of the scariest machines I have ever used, no joke) but as for an ordinary sewing machine, I'm having to use my 7 year old domestic which sounds and runs like a rusty old truck.. Oh the joys!
Skin tight lycra and rubber pieces teamed with elegant double breasted tailored suits, effortlessly smart all in ones and great fly detailing. Simple designs with unusual details. That’s what’s really been grabbing my attention when looking through the resort 2011 collections.
