My partner is currently finishing his second year at Nottingham Trent University studying Photography, Where He spent the majority of this year working closely with the fashion design students and photographing there final Degree collections for lookbooks/editorials ect, I was lucky enough to be able to go and view the degree show and exhibitions and was stunned by the catwalk show and the whole setup of the displays, Also very proud of Ryans photography that was Showcased on almost every Display in the building.

Seeing All this work showcased completely inspired me to step it up a notch with my own end of year display, i very much wanted it to be of this standard.

To get a good idea of what i wanted to design, i drew some simple silhouettes wearing stereotypical mechanics overalls, i then placed them over specification sheets and drew them out as designs, this gave a great effect and i became interested in the different things you can achieve using light. i loved the layered effect from the images wanted to investigate with projection and light further.

 I then used found bits of metal to layer on top of the drawings, to give an embellished look.

With the first mention of my end of college FMP (final major project) it was a clever decision that my first initial starting place was London, London was the place to be to refresh my memory, renew my mind and learn new things regarding whats happening with fabrics and what the current/ new trends are on the London streets.

I visited many Gallery’s whilst i was in London but my favorites were The Courtauld Gallery at Somerset House, Where i viewed the ‘Becoming Picasso’ Exhibition and then the ICA where i viewed Juergen Tellers ‘WOO’ Photography exhibition, the wide range of fashion, portraiture and mostly nude pictures were impressive. Also very shocking  when a  print the size of a billboard of Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, completely nude  Dominated a plain white room with nothing more than a women standing in the corner as a sort of security,  i considered his photography to be absolutely beautiful and was stunned by the amount of designers and labels hes photographed for. later browsing the street trends on brick lane and collecting a few fabric samples from SOHO i was feeling excited to review my research and further explore using WGSN to secure a clear theme, also what area i wanted to base the project, with it been design or styling.

Below ive posted a few pictures from my trip!
