In my last post, I said about getting onto a fashion course etc. which got me thinking about my portfolio work and thought it would be nice to actually blog about some of my work.
I started writing this post with how I've always enjoyed art/fashion etc. but I can't lie since I used to be the worlds biggest tom boy, football club the lot! I even remember I wouldn't take off my jeans whilst trying on my bridesmaid dress for my auntie's wedding, boy boy boy!
However in secondary school I knew art was something I was interested it, I only started doing textiles in college (2009) and picked it up pretty well thinking I'd never used a sewing machine before. Now I have a growing sewing machine collection and room full of sketch books, odd material and way to many clothes.
One thing I don't like about fashion is when designers have amazing work but then just wear a t-shirt, jeans and converse, I think if you design interesting outfits it makes you want to wear more interesting outfits, plus the fact you're literally a walking advert for your own work. Who knows maybe soon I'll be walking round with a foot collar round my neck like in one of these sketches.
Hope you're well.
