Here are a series of ideas of different ways I could communicate clothing for my look book, using a 'Pharmacy/Medical' concept. All three ideas clearly depict the clothing in a fun yet informational way.
Focusing on brand image, communication and promotion, I have organised a live brief to design an Autumn/Winter 2009 look book for Bournemouth individual fashion boutique 'The Pharmacy'. A new store is opening mid November and I will be producing a look book to promote the store and the brands stocked within the store.
I have always argued that fashion is a form of art, and I love the use of art as a major inspiration within fashion. Prada's campaign works with illustration and combines James Jean's work in the designing of the collection through the contours of the fabric, colours and print.
Peter Jensen has collaborated with Tim Walker to create a unique installation for his Autumn/Winter 09 collection, to be showcased at Dover Street Market. The installation was inspired by Peter Jensen's journey to Greenland, where he travelled to carry out research for his collection.
Jensen's capsule range, consisting of beaded knitwear, panelled woollen dresses and faux-fur legginns, is exclusive to Dover Street Market and will be placed within the installation among the 'army of penguins'.
"Working with my friends at Dover Street Market, and with Tim has been a fantastic opportunity to bring creativity and commerce together in an interesting and unique way."
Since my nan taught me how to knit (a while back now!) I hadn't really put my new craft to use. So, I decided to knit a few squares and sew a patchwork pillow out some old fabrics I had lying around. Inner cushion £1 from Wilkos, you can't go wrong.
I was at Bestival, Isle of Wight at the weekend and was lucky enough to be front row (hardcore fan) at the Fleet Foxes set on the main stage. I loved it. Their music gives me a warm feeling like no other music, Fleet Foxes are like a Sunday afternoon, an unwinding ambience of soft harmonistic vocals and sounds. It makes me feel like drinking a mug of hot chocolate and unwind in front of wood fire, wrapped in a woollen blanket.
Their video for my favourite song Mykonos is an interesting inspiring piece of animation from a company called Grandchildren. It's a simple collaboration of paper and music forming an animated story. Geometric shapes of pallid colours imitating creatures within a forest and other mystical happenings.
Definitely worth the 4 hour queue.
I have just discovered the company Lust Project whilst having a little read through my weekly Vice email newsletter.
The beginnings of my New York diary/blog that I have decided to create. I am going to incorporate illustration with photography, along with text- I will produce it within Indesign and hopefully get it printed as a book when I have the money to spare!
