I have fallen in love with Everlane, what they stand for (and especially their silk blouses). They design all the pieces in-house, affordable quality basics and beautiful marketing.
Continuing the same projects from my last interior post, I've moved onto looking at stationary and interior styling, using some of my own developed drawings.
Here is just a small envelope for buttons or paper clips etc.
They're very easy and quick to make, just print out your own design then you're good to go!
I'm having a very stressful week. Putting in 100% effort at college recently, I feel it's paying off although taking over my life (I didn't got to bed thursday and just worked through the night!). Aswell as finding out I have to submit an online portfolio for London College of Fashion by the 31st of Jan!! and I'm not too happy with my portfolio there's a couple bits I want to alter.
Along with prep I need to do for other interviews coming up soon and working every weekend leaves me with little time to get it all done. Example being at work today I found myself designing cushions on the back of receipts...
SAYING THIS, I am also loving being completely involved in it all. I'm constantly thinking about new techniques and ideas I want to try, I'm always learning and evolving as an art student. No matter how stressed out I'm becoming, it's never a chore for me to loose any sleep over it all and I've learnt to never switch off. I'm just very lucky I really enjoy what I do!
I was set a task of finding an object from a charity shop over the weekend, I kind of cheated and decided I wanted to use this antler my mum had picked up from a stall in Brighton. I love antlers and have been trying to work them into pretty much all my projects, so it's a perfect starting point.
These photos are for me to start thinking about marketing and styling. They were taken in my living room but i'm really looking forward to trying them again elsewhere, with different lighting and colour palettes.
Only a quick photo, but winter lighting makes it almost impossible to take any half decent shots. I'm back to collage again now, but luckily my timetable this year is really good. Tomorrow we're styling a photo shoot which is including some Mulberry Brighton pier-esq (SS12) style shots, all as part of a short intro project to ease us into 2013!
