I'm finally a free woman wooo, well, for a week or so while my work gets graded! I had a few hand-ins earlier last week; my research book, competitions, three toiles, portfolio and critical paper, such a huge weight of stress shifted! For those interested I'm studying Fashion Design at Newport University, I'm in my third and final year so the work you can see above contributes to my final collection, eep so scary! I stuggled my through second year as I kind of lost my way and lost sight of who I am as a designer. The truth is I'm not really a crazy, contemporary designer; I can't see myself making wacky dresses made from meat or hair or perspex bubbles that produce steam or contain crazy electrics, but I've come to realise that that's okay. I'm more real, I like to think I can design beautiful garments for real women. My final collection is an evening wear collection inspired by the style + glamorous vibe of the 1920's, the focal point is manipulated lace which is inspired by ornate ceilings. Now that all this work has been handed in, when I go back I'll be concentrating on making my garments which I'm quite looking forward to!
These next two weeks are being dedicated to getting myself back to feeling like myself, I'm really no good when I'm stressed! I've already half de-cluttered my bedroom resulting in throwing away SEVEN bin bags of rubbish, crazy! Next on my to-do list is my wardrobe, horrible task!ha, once it's done I'm going to be listing a load of stuff on eBay so will link it up when I've gotten round to it! I might also do a sort of room tour post as my room is finally starting to look like I pictured it when I had it decorated almost 2 years ago! Other than that this week I plan on re-newing my gym membership, catching up with my friends and taking a trip to London to get my final fabrics! Ooh and of course getting back into blogging! I'm hoping to post on what I had for Christmas, my sale buys and maybe even give the layout a bit of a re-vamp, nice and fresh for a new year!
