Dressing The Corrie Girls!

Hey everyone! I know it been while, but I'm trying to get back into it... the full-time stylist and blogger job has been getting in the way of my own blog, but now I've found the balance and I'm back! YAY!

I've been wanting to show you all this for a while now, but just haven't found the time. My new job as a stylist has given me the chance to dress some of the Coronation Street girls! What's Coronation Street some of you may ask? It's a British soap that's on TV at prime time for 3 nights a week.

Anyway I've sent out clothes for them to wear on screen and off screen and here's some of the first images...

The first one is Katie McGlynn, also seen on Waterloo Road a long with a variety of other shows...

For Katie I sent the stunning Tuxedo Dress from Missy Empire which unfortunately is now out of stock and won't be returning :(

The second on screen beauty, is a fairly new character who came into the soap as Tina's best friend, Tisha Merry... 

Both girls were out in Manchester celebrating Gay Pride on the Coronation Street float.

She is wearing a Beyonce inspired dress also from Missy Empire found here: Beyonce Dress
I thought it showed off her gorgeous curves brilliantly and she looked stunning :)

Hopefully over the next few weeks I may be able to access more images, so you can see who else I've dressed on and off the screen. It's such a fun thing to do, I must admit I was nervous at first but once you get that first one the rest just comes so easily, I absolutely adore styling and I hope you like what I've done so far to! :)

If you would like to find out more about both girls you can find their Twitter pages below.

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…
