How are you all?
For the past week I have been helping out on a film production as a costume designer and set photographer and I'm loving it! I've not done anything like this before and its nice to see what goes on behind the scenes and how much work it actually takes to create a film, even a short 15 minute one. You may have seen a few photos on my Instagram about it, I think on one of the photos I captioned that its difficult not to fall asleep between takes/scenes. This is because I'm not part of the filming team, I can't always be in the same room where they're filming which is understandable. The last thing I want is to find that I'm in the background somewhere eating or just playing on my phone haha :) The days were quite full on and we often had 19 hour days but it was all worth it and can't wait to see the finished film!
I have really enjoyed being apart of the film production and it has given me an insight into film which I could potentially combine with fashion design. I have actually created a fashion promotion film before and I really enjoyed creating that so maybe this is something I could go into?
If you want to take a look of the film I created you can view it here on my flickr. It's called LOOK BENEATH THE SKIN and its a t-shirt collection I designed and printed that is meant to show that we are all the same underneath (hence the name). Let me know what you think of it! (Please bare in mind that I created this in 2013!)

Anyone else loving gingham at the moment?!
As soon as I saw this gingham top, I knew I had to have it! It is perfect for the transition into Spring and throughout Spring/Summer too. I love the ruffle and bow details too, it really makes the boxy shape feel more feminine. My favourite detail of the blouse is that there is a slit from the cuff up to the elbow with a bow fastening at the cuff. I've not seen a detail like that before and it really adds to the blouses look.
Since the weather is ever so slightly getting better and warmer, I thought it would be a good time to bring out the camel trench again. Unfortunately for me, I misjudged the weather on the day and it was quite windy which is due to the lovely storm Dorris (you can probably tell by how windswept my hair is! haha!) and so I was rather cold. But on the bright side, I have an outfit for when Spring gets here! I want to invest in some red ballet style shoes or boots so I can add a pop of colour when wearing this top/outfit; so there may be another outfit post with this top soon!
Thank you so much for reading and hope you enjoyed it!
