Setting Up Shop?

Is this a good idea do you think???

I have so many ideas for handmade items that I want to make lots and lots for other people to buy too. I have a massive cupboard full of fabric I can make cushions, quilts and bags with and now I have my mini glue gun I feel I have opened up so many doors to my creativity.

I may not be producing clothes despite my fashion degree, however I am still pursuing all types of arts & crafts and if people like what I make then why shouldn't they be able to get it???

Crafts need to be brought to everyone, not just those that have been producing art for years, but to those who have no idea they even exist or are scared to try.

So once I get some products made I will be putting up pictures for you to view and your opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Keep checking back for updates :)

Hot Chocolate & Mint!

Thought it would be nice to post a link to a cool blog I follow on both Blogger and Twitter.

This young lady is called Diana and has the quirkiest style I've ever seen and I just love the pieces she makes herself! The London badges are made out of keyrings and look great on anything she wears!

Check her out at Hot Chocolate & Mint!

Empowering Women at Jean Paul Gaultier

I'm not entirely sure about Beth Ditto on the runway, I mean yeah go for it show that big girls can strut their stuff too and be proud of who you are instead of trying to be an impossible size zero all the time, but I feel there is something not quite right.

The collection is very rock chick and empowering women. Red, black and white being the main palette colours. Picture 5 shows a mix of prints that reminds me of the eclectic wardrobes from the stage show of 'We Will Rock You' which by the way is mind blowingly loud!

The bright white jacket in picture 6 over a black lace and red number is very fitting, number 11 has a full denim look, number 13 jacket is gorgeous, red leather in 14, 30 is lovely in white/cream, 41 is to die for! oooooh and 53 is cool with the criss-crossing and lace!

Asian inspiration at Louis Vuitton

I've always had a love for anything oriental so it's no surprise that I adore the asian inspired pieces at Louis Vuitton. I am particularly fond of pictures: 26, 27, and 29 and 30 is just gorgeous! I love the colour and the silhouette! Oh my 47 is stunning, sexy and sophisticated all in one and the print just screams confidence!

The flapper style dresses in pictures 6 and 7 are also very nice and the layers of colours work really well together.

Bright brights at Wunderkind

A friend of mine posted this link on facebook and I just had to have a look.

The prints on the garments are so bold, the colours are vivid and the overall prints are eye-popping and somewhat surreal when mixed with the checkerboard. You really must have a look!

Some of my favourites are the dresses in pictures: 6, 14, 27 and 42; I adore the jacket in 35 and all of 38 is gorgeous!

The overall look for the show with the hair in pigtails, pale makeup and bright red lipstick brings out the colours in the prints where the shoes give it a bohemian dolly look. The different printed garments look great mixed up and really allow for the woman/man to stand out in a crowd. I especially love the men's shirt and matching trousers in matching prints. Very eye-catching!
