New Designers Final Preparations.

With only a few days to go things have been very busy in my life. In a couple of days I will be leaving 3 years of life behind in Hartlepool and moving back to Bridlington. Then I will be heading to spend the week in London @ New Designers! So exciting! This week I have made some Cv's to take and we had to mock up our area of the stand. Here is a few pictures of how its looking. (Sorry about the sun glare).

ArtsThread All Set Up!

I've finally finished my Artsthread portfolio so please take a look. It was very hard narrowing down my imagery into just four catagories but I think it looks quite nice and professional!

Vivienne Westwood Exhibition @ The Bowes Museum

The Lady Herself.

I LOVE these can shoes, the particular drinks choice is great. I'd love a pair myself.

Today I went to the Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle! The exhibition celebrates Vivienne Westwood and her amazing shoes! It was great to see them in person and I love massive heels! Its such a great collection! I definitely recommend you go visit if you can! Its on till the 10th of July!

Lovely Surprise!

After the degree show I go a lovely surprise! My close friend Annie who came to see the degree show had bought me this lovely journal! I absolutely love the stuff you can buy in paperchase and this is going to be perfect for me to log my next adventures in! I love it! Thank you Annie!

What a Few Days!

Thursday was the TWENTY:ELEVEN degree show opening night! It was such a fab night and great atmosphere in the church! We had Malcolm Jarvis from the Bradford Textile Society open the show and he did a lovely speech. We then had all our friends and family round at 7pm and presented all the tutors with flowers which were very beautiful! The night went on and everyone had a fab time- we did some silly awards and I won funniest person, but I think I have Anni to thank for that. Below is a picture of me and my work.

The show is still open at Church Square in Hartlepool all week so please come and visit!

TONIGHT! is the night, I've got my tag business cards done for the degree show night. I feel these go better with my antique theme as they look slightly vintage. They didn't take that long as I thought and I am really pleased with the results. Can't wait to start to get ready for tonight although I am debating whether to wear heels!

A BIG Thank You!

+44 (0)1488 686866

I would just like to say a BIG thank you to these two companies for their sponsorship in my Final Major Project! I love both their dyes and have achieved some great results through using them in my work!

Bits and Bobs..

I ordered some colourful business cards from Moo. I really love their print quality and chose to have some of these with the lovely imagery of my designs I have collected over the years. Above, is our years 'Look Book' where my work is shown. My next job is to finish off my hand made business cards for the degree show opening night. I'll post a pic when they are done :)

Eeeeek One Day To Go!

Its been very hectic in the church over the last couple of days but everything has seemed to come together nicely. I have picked my best 5 printed lengths to display at the degree show, it was a very hard decision. I am really pleased with the results although a little nervous to see what people reactions will be, fingers crossed people will like.

What else has been happening!

This is the lovely Jayne painting. Last week we had to paint some very large boards in preparation for the degree show. Paint was flying everywhere! Next week we are putting the show together which is quite scary. I haven't seen my finals for a couple of weeks as they have been hidden and marked by the tutors. I can't wait to start experimenting and arranging them for the show!

I also was abit naughty and treated myself to some new shoes for the show, although I will be taking some flats in my hand bag. I LOVE shoes! These are from topshop and I took full advantage of the 20% student discount. Yes they are high but I love a good platform shoe!

Getting Surrounded by Boxes.

Not the most interesting picture, but at the mo I am beginning to be surrounded by lots of boxes. Over the past three years I have been living in my lovely flat in Hartlepool but now the time has come for me to return to Bridlington. I have been spending the last few days packing up all my bits and bobs which is very tiring. I have made some great friends and will miss everyone lots but hopefully we will all stay in touch. :)
