photo inspiration

 photos from rosenmunns.tumblr except first photo from

from rosenmunns.tumblr (see my links...)

haaha playing around with photies is waay fun!

look at this pattern i made, can you guess what the pattern is??

when i'm a famous designer i envisage people actually falling over themselves to wear shirts with prints of my face on em..that'll be the day! what am i like?
it'd make a good tiny print though..

heres the original...

this is not as refined as it could be but i like the idea...

my and my lovely son calo! (aged 1)

look at this sexy collection by ana is inspired by the body's innards and combines my two favourite things: digital print and stiff silks...the bottom pics are kinda mcqueen reminiscent don't you think??

^^^this jacket is my fave!^^^

^^^i love how the torso and man parts^^^
are sort of highlighted...
or maybeee thats just me, haahaa!

^^^love abit of random harnessing^^^

^^^blimey! they look like the walking dead...^^^
but alot less blue and..errr dead...

for some reason i am loving the menswear much more than the womenswear... i would totally wear the sh*t out of those red-blood cell jackets... damn cool i say... the dresses are gorgeous though dont get me wrong!

but i have to say, her collections slightly puzzle me... of the strong designs you see above, there are just as many bland and blah garments, within the SAME collection...
i think she needs to think about editing to only the best in future collections...
if you take a look at you will see what i mean...

...or do you disagree??

on the whole though, lovely clothes!

hiya everyone...
hope all's well with you!

lets look at some
'delightful' menswear by Non.

and then i hope you don't mind if i
chuck some randoms your way...

so that i can finally lead you all into
my NEW PROJECT for saint martins!
aaaaargh soo excited! !!

 soo beautiful, see more at

and now for some randoms...
i just thought these images were rather cool, unfortunatley i sourced them aages ago so have no idea who they're by... 
theyre by zeitguised! see my links...
the second one reminds me of a crabstick..forgive me if you have no idea what on earth i'm gabbing on about! :)

...finally, as i am currently at central saint martins doing fashion, i would like to offer any help advice about csm, the course or any of the projects i have completed (the white project, colour project and print project) feel free to ask...maybe you are thinking about applying or even just interested to know what we get up to...

my new project, to start over the christmas holidays, is the shirt project which, like the white project, has been going for many years so it is a likely project for next year... soo here it is, the SHIRT PROJECT brief:

Design and make a shirt for a specific market/customer ...(this involves designing the shirt in the style of a particular designer/or that would appeal to a certain market or style genre. for example, i am choosing either balenciaga or mary katrantzou)

*research must cover the history of the shirt AND your chosen market/designer

*make it work as an item on its own, for the designers showroom

*pay attention to classic shirt details, both historic and contemporary:
(collar, front fastening, cuffs, yoke, pockets, plackets, darts, seam shaping, topstaitching, shirt tails/side gussets, back pleat, ruffle/contrast fabric fronts)

*NOTE: the shirt must have a collar, collar stand, placket, cuffs and buttonholes.

work required for tutorial:
*rough designs

work required for critique/deadline:
*illustrate (to portfolio standard) the final piece, showing how it will be worn
*have a finished garment worn by a model
*make a display/package suitable for chosen market/designer
*submit research books, scrap books and design books

hope you find that of use, or just at least, a little bit interesting?? and if you have any questions whatsoever, i'm all ears!!

i absolutely love you!

Im sorry!
Of the 'inspirations-creations-sensations-life-art-design-photography-musings-and general jibber jabber' description i give of the blog, i am aware that i haven't actually provided much of these things yet!

i would love to be a little more fashion-y and provide some outfit posts, and also my work to give you all more of an idea about myself, and not continue to palm off other peoples ideas as i have a tendency to do...
when i eventually get a new camera...and maybe hermione's time turner (remember THAT potter fans???) as there are certainly not nearrrly enough hours in the day for all the ridiculous fussing i do...i dont know, against the usual 1:10 of procrastinating I do versus working, its a wonder i get ANYTHING done! i would love to see what you guys get up to in your spare time AND working life...any cool things you have made?

and this is me it doesnt become soo impersonal...but im not such a fan of photos as you can tell harhaaa...i'll work on that!

thanks for stopping by, xxxxxxxx eve

in the spirit of christmas... ???

oh please, i HOPE not !!!!

You'll also notice (eventually) an illustration under my blog links, which is also by him...appropriately named (no sarcasm intended) 'Whores Racing'...
