Final Year Fashion Show

The video has been released by the university of our fashion show so I thought I'd share it with you, it contains everyone's designs from my year, or if you only want to skip to see mine it comes on at 19.09 minutes, you'll also see my friend Helen Williams' garment on the male model with mine, as she only had one model; her cat print is so cute!!

Out front it looks like it all ran smoothly and calmly, I'm not going to lie, out back was total chaos! Trying to get 35+ models clothes and in some cases make up changed and out on time and then dealing with broken zips, safety pins and so on was crazy, but it was fun and we were pleased with the results and I hope you are too! :)

We were also told by the tutors it was the best year yet, and we've all been to previous ones before and we know we definitely had the best turn out, it looks pretty packed in this video, this was the second show there was even more people there the first time, when we all came out with one of our designs at the end it was pretty overwhelming as we never imagined to have a turn out as good as that, people were out by the door craning their heads trying to see the show it was unbelievable, so happy!! 

Anyway enjoy... Oh and if you look carefully you can see sections of our print designs actually on the catwalk...

Screen Printing - Bitmapping

So the other day at uni we learnt a little tip to add depth to our screen prints, its called bitmapping
First load the image you want to use in photoshop Heres mine - its something I'm looking at using for mothers day

The you'll need to convert you image to Grayscale - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Grayscale]

You'll then need to adjust the contrast of the image to help add depth later - to do this [Image] [Adjustment] [Levels], play around with the slider until you get the desired effect - you can also use [Brightness/contrast] but I prefer Levels

Your image must be a minimum of 150ppi, although it is better to be 300ppi. To adjust the number of pixels within your image select [Image] [Image Size] and you can change the resolution

Now its time to Bitmap the image - to do this go to [Image] [Mode] [Bitmap] - this will open this window change all of the settings to be the same as those in the image. Depending on your type of screen mesh you may need to adjust the Bitmap output …

Roberto Cavalli Fashion Illustrations

While I was a Fashion and Textiles Design student I was forever looking for the top designer's fashion illustrations, as I always found them so inspirational. I've recently stumbled across some I really love by Roberto Cavalli, so I thought I share them with you.
This first two are designs made for Cindy Crawford and Georgia May Jagger, and they are amazing.

This one below is for the lovely Sharon Stone. The snake back detail will look incredible, and adds a perfect little twist to the classic strapped back/backless dress.

The next one was designed for Liu Wen, and it's my favourite. The colour and the indication of the pattern are beautiful. I love the expressive lines of the design and how subtle shading shows how the dress will fall. You could only expect the best from an amazing designer like Roberto Cavalli and he definitely delivers.

There is no need to try and imagine how the finished dress would look as you can see it below. The outcome is just as stunning as the …

10 Most Shocking Tennis Outfits Ever

This week sees the start of Wimbledon and as Wimbledon is the smartest, most well dressed tournament there is, I thought it would be fun if we looked back at some of tennis' biggest fashion blunders.
At number 10 we have Anne White from Wimbledon, it may have been 1985 Anne but that doesn't excuse turning up in your pyjamas to work.

Next up we have tennis' very own Lady Gaga, Bethanie Mattek, who is famous for her outrageous dress sense, although this outfit from the 2007 US Open is relatively tame for her.

At number 8 we have the five times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams with her biker inspired look from the Australian Open in 2004. Nice shin pads Serena.

At number 7 sees Bethanie again, this time dressed as a cowgirl at the 2005 US Open. You're playing tennis Beth, not attending a fancy dress party! 

Bethanie is still holding on to the title of worst dressed tennis player at number 6, sporting this design from Alex Nomble at Wimbledon 2011. Tennis balls are what…
