Its possible to Love Someone

Pretty good artist I happened to find on my internet travels;  Let me know your opinions.

Anyhow, I'm now back at school, but because of my New Year Resolutions (which SHALL stay intact and which will not fall to pieces similarly to the majority of resolutions in the world) I will keep updates regularly. As I spent hours of my first day back at school working on my textiles book, I discovered that hiding myself away in my room for days on end seems to have payed off (my teacher was quite pleased with me) and I also discovered some impressive artists.

These lavish pieces are by Afet Halil, a 'textile designer'. There is little detail about Halil on the web, so I'm afraid I cannot provide you with much. However, I can quote the designer; 
'My final collection is an energetic range of conceptual showpieces for couture. The robust use of colour from flamboyant to restrained plays a central role in the work. I am especially intrigued by the interaction between the textile pieces and the body's movement. I capture and emphasise this through my use and manipulation of a diverse collection of fabric, creating a harmony between the very delicate and the bold. The combination of luxurious fabrics and the unconventional materials adds an unexpected element.'
I think his range is beautiful and elegant. The soft, fluid fabrics and intricate details (which I hope are clear- the pictures are bad quality, I apologise) create stunning pieces. 
 These are some of  
 Sandra Buckland's creations.  They are similar to Mark Fast, whom you may find in a few posts down :) I really love these... The colours are simple, the pieces themselves look soft and comfortable, but the intricacy and mass of shapes and folds and curls create art itself. Some of the pieces stand out incredulously as you can see, but I love this senselessness, the sudden solidity. 

To finish this brief post, I would love to show you these heavenly images...

Reblogged from ">Topcoat, this is Denisa Dvorakova by Johan Sandberg for Marie Claire Italy January 2011. Shows how powerful white really is. You can ramble on about colour (as I have done in my textiles book :/) but white is phwoar- worthy. 

Quick News- Emmanuelle Alt, aged 45 and who is known for her rock n' roll style including large shoulders, skinny jeans, and giddy heels, is to head French Vogue. Congratulations! A job many would kill for, no doubt... (not that I'm um... speaking for myself... or anything...)
Bye for now :)

Happy New Year, let it be a good one :)


In two days I go back to school.... about 5 days after the majority of my friends woop.
This hasn't been the best holiday, I have spent the majority of my time sorting out things- homework, art, my room, christmas shopping blah de blah. Oh and I've spent way over 50, 60, maybe 70 hours, watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Don't judge me? just loook;

 See? Who can resist! Ok, sure, I cried a bit when this happened:

Ok Fine I cried a lot. What? SPIKE died. He SACRIFICED HIMSELF. Buffy FINALLY ADMITTED HE LOVED HIM. It means a lot to me :( who can not love that black leather coat? Nait me thats for sure. Maybe why I loved my Buffy DVD boxset so much at christmas. And, talking of leather and christmas presents...

Thankyou my dearest mother and brother :)
The non- pannelled one will be slightly trickier to pull off, but I'll have some fun playing with that one... comment any ideas if you wish :) ah yes, that reminds me- next post I promise to include an outfit or two.
In other news; Spotted, the first man I've seen wearing an Alexander McQueen scarf and BOY did he look good. (get it? see what I did there? the BOY? yeahh) He did it minimal, and I apologise for not taking a photo, my phone was broken at the time. However thats an encouragement to all men out there- be bold, take a step, be fashion fearless. Aside from the cheesy, 'cos that was kinda gross, not long after this bit of spotting, I came across my favourite pieces in all the world. Touching them and seeing them up close was far better than damn google. It was like a whole new universe, a beautiful galaxy, that's right.... CHRISTOPHER KANE
Look at that beauty..Galaxy-print silk-chiffon biker jacket for a whopping £1,670. I saw it at the shop, and sadly, I had to leave it at the shop.
I love his new pieces and -Shock Horror!- I have begun comparing his beautiful chiffon galaxy- print scarves to Mcqueen's skull print ones. Eek
Christopher Kane is seemingly part of the 'Under the stars' fashion idea which you can find if you click here at net-a-porter for a pretty nifty A-Z on the latest. A, K and U are definately worth having a cheeky look...
And for more talkage of stars, these gorgeous Yolanda SPIKEs Louboutin peep-toe pumps are making me starry- eyed. (I'm goin' straight at it with these puns... see the 'SPIKE'? wittay)
Yes or no- go for you? Sure, they're a little 'The Simpsons Movie' meet 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama- Queen' but I go for all that shiz bang.
Oh and I just realised that Louboutin, shortened, sounds like 'lube'. Haaa.
My humour now being satisfied I think I should go and finish the rest of this holiday with more work (onto the catchup essays I'm afraid) and starting to watch the 'Angel' series? Hell yeah :)
Bye for now :)
