I´ve been MIA on this blog for a while and the reason for that is that I´ve been working ny butt off trying to finish the first presentation of my thesis project which took place yesterday. We had to present a number of things to explain our concept, our inspiration and our collection. One of the things was to take 10 photos that represent the concept, the feeling we want to convey with our final collection. My inspiration comes from the microscopic images of human cells that I posted earlier and I wanted my photos to give the feeling of cells dividing and interacting, evolving from one stage to another.
So, starting with my concept description, here´s the first part of my thesis project presentation.
Two of my fellow class mates designed a shoe for Nelly.com. Click here to buy a pair!
After much consideration and now with the blessing of Amys family Fred Perry has decided to launch the second (A/W “11) and third (S/S “12) the Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection. (The first collection was released in fall 2010.) The collection contains garments in the spirit of Amys signature style, and I think it´s a lovely tribute to an amazing singer.
All royalties from the collections will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse Foundation.
I´m excited and desperately beginning to wonder how to scrape up the money to buy it.

For our accessories collection presentation we had to, apart from designing a collection of ten pieces and put them all together in a catalogue, we also had to make a bag.
One of the assignments we got for our womenswear project was to create garments for a Barbie doll which gave me the idea to instead of making some elaborate garment I would let Barbie manifest my concept. To take something pretty and perfect and turn it dirty and messy in order to make it more interesting.
