Phase 2.

I am now two thirds the way through my Masters course. Today I presented an overview on what I had been up to over module two. One of my main aims using fur in my MA course is that I want to stress the fact that its important to use fur ethically/no wastage and from the legal fur trade. 
I thought I would share with you some of my research slides I included in my presentation.

A Weekend in Antwerp










So last week I wish I could say with University "I jetted off to Belgium & Paris", however it was more like "I sat on a coach for 17 hours to get to Belgium". This was a disgustingly painful journey, especially knowing that I will only be at the first destination for a day and a half- was this even worth it?! As I sat on the coach waiting at Dover I did begin to doubt, why on earth did I agree to take part in this?! 
When we did finally arrive in Antwerp I was just thankful to be off the coach and to able to go to sleep in a clean environment. 
I regained my faith in the trip when exploring Antwerp, it was beautiful! The reason why we were there was to attend the 350 years celebration of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp & 50 Years Fashion Department Exhibition at the MoMu. This features the history and the related success story of Antwerp Fashion (Antwerp Six included). 
I have shared a few photos I took whilst exploring which I hope you like, my next post will be on the 50th anniversary of the Fashion Department.

A Fashion Collab

Recently I have been collaborating with Rahul Jhangiani who is an MA Fashion Photography student at the same university as me. Shooting with Rahul has been fun and he knows his stuff so I'm always pleased with the outcome!
Below are some examples of our work together, as you can see Rahul puts a lot of preparation into his shoots.

Spring Prep







Thank goodness Winter is nearly over, I'm itching to throw off my quilted jacket and hang up my boots! In my anticipation for the Spring sunlight I have been adding to my wardrobe for preparation. You can't be caught short- so it's necessary to be prepped for the season change (an excuse for a cheeky shop). 
New additions include: Vintage rework dress, Jewellery from River Island, Vintage Clutch, light weight Leather Jacket from Reiss, Strappey nude heels from Guess and a pink OPI nail polish to brighten up my look (Charged Up Cherry).
