Final range

A little bit of a throwback for a Monday to my final 3rd year varsity range, 
shot by photographer Alexis Diack. An incredible photographer, 
specialising in mainly weddings and such. 

This shoot featured on The Pretty Blog a while back… 
I was so privileged that she asked to use my range for this shoot of hers, 
now that I get to keep and use the pics as a part of my portfolio.

It's been one heck of a long time since I created a post.... but it's about time I get back to it! 

No better way to do so than posting the new Chloe range... 

Chloe Resort 2014. WOW.
How do so many unconventional silhouettes, fabrications, textures, colours and
concepts combine so perfectly?
This is design.

Simplicity, elegance and intricacy combined beautifully in this ensemble. 
Chloe designer, Clare Keller aims to bring about pants phenomenon.
Oversized long, cropped and short, styled with crop tee's. 
I loooove the use of guipure lace and consistent boxy silhouettes.
Also the metallic flats! and the mustard trench! and and and......

London.

One of the perks of my job is that I get the opportunity to travel. 
I recently went on my first buying trip to a place I've dreamed of since I can remember, 
magical London. 

I fell in love with the bustle of trench coat wearing, soldier-like people along Oxford Street. 
The way that every building is nothing short of an architectural masterpiece. 
I fell in love with the tubes and all the people-watching opportunities they provide.  
The way that the streets feel like catwalks, normal people strutting their unique creations. 
Knowing that these were the streets where designers come for inspiration- quirky and eclectic.

The city oozes with inspiration, everyone and everything stirred in me a bewildering excitement. 
Inspiration that made me want to draw, write, design, or just do something to express 
the way the place, and the adventure made me feel. 
Four shorts days was not nearly enough time to work, play and see all that wanted to. 
But I most certainly tried my best. 
A stroll through Hyde Park.
I swore to myself that one day, I will come back and spend days climbing on and off tubes, 
getting lost on purpose. At whichever station looked like fun - ones like Cockfosters and Angel Station. 
Cute little alley in Shorditch, with signs and arrows directing to a sweet little cafe. 
Chinatown. A friend took me to this secret bar here one night. 
No street signage just a knock on the mysterious old, dark door got you in to this dingy, 
but very trendy 4 level cocktail and cigar lounge. 
I felt like something out of a mob movie.
Cliche, but necessary. 
My sweet little hotel, The Leonard Hotel- just off Oxford Street.

The late night bustle of scrambling Londoners.
These stores really know how to do displays - like none I've seen before!
Once I had navigated my way through the London Underground, from 
Heathrow to Marble Arch station. I climbed my way out what felt like the most 
exciting maze of tubes, tracks and peculiar people - this was my first view 
of the outside, London world. I don't think it could have been much better.

Yet another awesome resort collection, loving the abundance all over the web lately. 
And another awesome collection from Orla Kiely. 
Lovely layering, perfect combination of cutesy prints, polka dots and hearts, perfectly preppy.
