I'm Back... and Officially a Bachelor of Arts!

Sorry for my lack of posts over the last few months, its been very busy what with my holiday, graduating, family visits and moving house, not to mention my very temperamental internet that only decides to work properly once in a blue moon! But I'm back! My internet is more stable too yay!

Anyway! I did promise you holiday snaps, however you'll have to wait a little while longer for them as my other half is still scanning them in and editing the others, but I promise I will have them soon!

For now though, you can see my graduation, I'm now officially a Bachelor of Arts, my full degree title is BA Hons in Fashion and Textile Design with Enterprise, its all very exciting and its finally sunk in that I'm no longer a student, which I'm actually excited about where as before I was just scared! Here are some photographs from my special day...








My Boyfriend

The Parents

My most attractive face! I wasn't impressed

"If I smile for the photo will you hurry up and stop?"

Definitely felt a bit like something out of Harry Potter!

Horraaaaayyy

I also have some very exciting family news, which I will be sharing in the next few days :). Also stay tuned as I'm writing up a tutorial on how to do your creative CV, I've been revamping mine for various jobs so I thought I'd share my knowledge with you on the dos and don'ts, I may also include an example cover letter as well, we'll see!

Anyway that's all for now, but I can assure you I will be posting regularly again!

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…
