First Weeks at Missy Empire

So I recently started as the Fashion Stylist and Social Media Executive for Missy Empire, I'm not going to lie it's hard work but still a lot of fun. I get the chance to be creative and work with fashion and that's just amazing to me!

As Fashion Stylist I style up photo shoots and flat outfits, I also go out with my boss looking for new designs in clothes, shoes and accessories to buy in. As Social Media Executive I am in charge of our social media and blog to make sure our name gets out there and is well represented. I obviously like the Fashion Styling side more but it is quite fun doing flash giveaways and watching as twitter, (or which ever social media platform it is) goes bonkers over something you've just created! 

Here's some images of shoots I've over the last few weeks.

This is my absolute favourite image to come out of our first shoot! We had the great opportunity to work with international model Amy Neville, who over the last week I believe has been casted for a part in the new ITV series The Royals. Such a lovely girl and great to work with, I'm sure we'll see a lot more of her.


The photographer on all our photo shoots is Roy Bridgewood, who runs Clickportraits, a lovely helpful guy and great on shoots.

Our make up artist Kat Horrocks was fab on this photo shoot as well, I would definitely recommend using her. You can find her on facebook here

Our photographer rather sneakily took this one of me balancing on my good leg trying to sort out the models jacket... normally I don't like photographs of myself but I actually like this :)

On to some of my random flat outfits. These are just made up at any point I fancy during the day to promote our products during the day, so far I've been getting great feedback from our customers and followers so it is going really well!

This one above was the day I also went out buying with my boss, it was such and exciting day! I picked the shirt in this image to be sold and I was allowed to bring in our very first range of bags all chosen by me! This one is one of our office favourites, all the girls are fighting over who's allowed to buy it, haha.

It's great I've only been there a few weeks and I feel like I've done so much already, so far I see it as definitely a good move for my career.

Let me know which of my outfits you'd wear... and for now I'll leave you with the behind the scenes video of our photo shoot... enjoy!

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…
