Music.

As a fashion student/designer I take inspiration from all aspects of the creative fields. Music is key in developing a sense of style, personality within my work. When you watch a fashion show you only have two things to convey your idea with 1. Your collection. 2. Your song/soundtrack. When thinking about fashion shows and my fashion film I need to portray an emotion in two minutes. Hear is some weekend listening to help sum up the ambient and aggressive nature of my collection. 

Let me know your favourites.






Smashing pumpkins, The Stooges, Grinderman, The Vibes and James Blake all videos taken from youtube.

Block

As the collection is slowly but surely developing, my magazine is lurking in the background. Inspired by the compact broadsheet 'I newspaper' taking an established newspaper and condensing it into a more youthful format. This will be the basis of my culture magazine 'Block' featuring my manifesto 'Today/Tomorrow' which is now completed and will be shown on my blog this friday.  Also I have secured an interview with the fantastic Glasgow photograph David Gillanders who will be my main feature spread as well as having a few other inspiring spreads. Hope to have the magazine fully printed and completed by Christmas. In the meantime I will be updating my progress of Block, I will also be updating you all with the collection. 






All photographs by David Gillanders featuring the Ukraine children and Glasgow high rise.
