everybody loves a questionnaire…

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

As readers of my blog I’m guessing you must spend a considerable amount of time on the Internet, or at least enjoy spending time online. Luckily for you (..!) this makes you ideal candidates to answer my questionnaire for my final year fashion marketing module, titled ‘online retail: competing with the high street’. It really will make my day if you could take 5 minutes to fill it in for me… Thanks in advance!

P.S

If anybody is 5′3 and under it would be a great help to my fellow marketing friend if you could fill in her questionnaire on the petite market, thanks!

Here is a little insight into what has completely taken over my life for the past 2 months … fashion design is fun but so hard, enter any fashion degree course at your own risk! I’ve just started my final collection; the accumulation of all the skills I have learnt over the past 4 years rolled into one amazing collection that defines myself as a designer – no pressure here then. It really took a while for me to decide on which direction to take my research and sketchbook and after many ideas I have settled on my collection being loosely based on the 1999 film ‘The Virgin Suicides’. I do hope it provides me with enough inspiration for an entire collection, though so far I’m finding it really interested and exciting!

The hardest part so far has definitely been sourcing fabrics and components, and thankfully I found Spoonflower who are able to produce the digitial prints I really want to be included within the collection. So far they have been a great company to work with; very student friendly and helpful! I just need to start designing the prints for the garments and get swatching initial ideas – stay tuned for the results!

P.S If any other fabric companies out there are interested in sponsering a little yet fiercly ambitious student like myself please do get in touch :)

Ralph Lauren 4D experience!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

Just a quick post as I just had to share this amazing video with you all… it’s an amazing fusion of art, fashion and technology from Ralph Lauren – something I’m particularly interested in. If you’re wondering where I’ve been for the past couple of weeks it’s been stuck in the design studio working on countless projects!

I’ve started my final collection this week which is very exciting and will hopefully have a¬†smidgen of free time to balance the blog and uni work a little better.

Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend :)
