The structure of a designer piece is always an intricate process that has somehow intimidated me because it seemed like such a difficult task that needed to be handled with care. Some designers describe their collections as their 'babies' or 'child' due to the hard work that was put into making the final product as great as it can be.

This particular fashion film enabled us all to see the emotional impact that the process of making this collection had on Raf Simons from beginning to end. It was intriguing to see the ways in he collated his ideas from various aspects of fashion, history and art as it shows that ideas can stem from all aspects of life.

There's so much to say about this film that it will require you all to watch it and experience it for yourselves. Some way, some how. Find it. 

Are you a designer?

A little update on university life so far. The uni life has entailed a lot of great and memorable moments on both my course and in my personal life. But one question I always encounter is .... do you design stuff then? I usually end up laughing and smiling saying, no, no I don't.
What course is it that I Study you may ask? Fashion Communication and Promotion. Trust me when I say that its a handful to say. 
The diversity of my course content intrigued  me as it enables me to experience many aspects of the fashion industry, both in the creative sector and the business side of fashion such s PR, Marketing and Branding. 
The course itself is quite interesting in terms of how many projects we do and how they are conducted. It enable us to really push ourselves and learn new techniques on programs such as Photoshop and surprisingly, PowerPoint. 
The growth of my learning and understanding will surely increase as time progresses throughout the years, so I'm ready for whatever the journey entails.

The Colour Scheme - A/W 15

No Comments »

I've always wondered if there is a fixed colour scheme that one must adopt during a particular season. For instance, summer usually reveals a pastel blue, green, pink and yellow colour scheme in the streets. You might also find that there are various prints and bright colours that are found on every item possible. 

Winter for me usually entails a lot of black, white and grey. Monotone colours is simplistic and can be styled in various ways. This season was no different for me except front he fact that I'm now more of a stylish comfort dresser. This usually involves a fitted pair of jogging bottoms, polo neck top and a pair of trainers. Although, this is usually only for my 9am lectures. Being warm and comfy is incredibly essential for this season as the winter nights can be quite brutal. Nevertheless, it is nice to add a stylish piece of clothing to create the final look. For me, its usually a jacket.
Here are some of the examples that I'm loving for this season in line with my preferred colour scheme.
