Weave Project #1

So my lack of blogging has been completely down to my work load at university. This is one of my finished projects in Weave. The project was an interiors project where you had to design for a company taking elements of the company and design fabric samples that could be sold as part of the company, so I chose Ralph Lauren Home. Even though this is a interiors project I ended up using a lot of fashion research because the colour's (especially the lime green) came directly from fashion and I wanted to give my designs a little more of an edge by using this colour.
I'm currently starting my second weave project and this one is fashion based as well as doing a sketchbook project. I only have four weeks left so as soon as I'm finished I'll be back blogging!

London for the Knitting & Stitching Show

I recently just came back from London where I exhibited work at The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. The exhibition was part of the Knitting Textile Awards which I was a finalist showing the hand knitted and hand dyed jumper I made for my final project during the art foundation course I did before I came to Heriot Watt. I still have another show at Harrogate in November hence why I haven't blogged about the exhibition yet, the winner will also be announced then so when I'm there in November I'll also get some photos of the other finalists work. 
I was in London for five days during this exhibition so these are just some of my photo's off instagram (@claree.c).

LOVE - Anne-Sofie Madsen

Anne-Sofie Madsen S/S 2013 Campaign.
While doing some research to try and get some inspiration for university work I came across this designer and I am quite simply in love. 
"Here is a young designer that we just can not seem to get enough of. Everything that Denmark’s fashion shining star,Anne-Sofie Madsen puts in front of us is a testimonial to her growing success. In her S/S 2013 campaign she shows us again that her talent does not end at design and illustration. Her keen eye and refined aesthetic extends into her ability to collaborate with photographer Jens Langkjaer, so seamlessly that the branding appears to never have left her control, truly a remarkable transition for such a young designer.

Christian Blanken & Aminaka Wilmont SS13

During London Fashion Week I was lucky enough to attend the Christian Blanken Spring/Summer 2013 show and then the Aminaka Wilmont Spring/Summer13 show. I loved the clean cut lines in Christian Blanken.
Aminaka Wilmont Spring/Summer collection 'Threicae', working with the concept of "working textures onto bare skin" were just beautiful especially the soft print work contrasting with the harsh black hair of the models.
