paper dress

the photo quality is terrible but here is a dress i made today out of paper, its my first ever attempt at doing this and kinda made it as i went along so it isnt amazing!
i cut out each individual feather and stuck them on individually as well, took so long, but i'm pretty happy with it for how little time it took me and no planning!

printed textiles over 1 week

i am currently doing a foundation course at cleveland college of art and i thought i would share with you some of the work i have done, i have been there for 4 weeks now and have completed 2 weeks worth of graphics and illustration, and 1 week of textiles.
here are some of my textile pieces i have completed, these are all experiments using different medias such as inks, wax, sewing, paper, drawing, fabrics etc, i have also used a heat press for many of these experiments.
i chose to base me work around a dream catcher i have using feathers and the dreamcatcher its self, i think the design would be great for interior use such as wallpapers and cushions.
i will then go on to creating a final piece, i will post my process to creating that.
enjoy x

blazer - my aunties from the 90's
disco pants - american apparel 
boots (very dirty) - topshop 
cross necklace - topshop
white top - asos

this is my favourite jacket as it was my aunties in the 90's, she was very in fashion and i managed to keep a few items before they were all sent to charity :(
i've teamed it with disco pants, i love disco pants as they're so simple yet add an edge to your outfit.
i'm wearing my favourite boots again, you can tell i've over worn them due to the dirtiness. oops.
looking very ill as i've been out in the rain today!

tartan playsuit - little vintage shop called vintagevogue in middlesbrough
blouse with detail you can't really see - topshop
dr martens

i adore this tartan playsuit, at the back it has braces attached so the back is also really cute, it was a great find and so so cheap, it reminds me of the film clueless.
i teamed the playsuit with a white shirt and dr martens to give it a slight edge.
p.s i got a hair cut.

here are my favourite shoes of all time! my boyfriend bought me them for christmas and i fell in love, they go perfectly with these floral trousers and fur coat, the trousers stand out so much and look so vibrant and pretty.
i feel slightly awful wearing this coat as its real fur, but it was such a good find, it was £50 at a vintage store, and despite it moulting EVERYWHERE its still beautiful, and feels amazing. (guilty)

blouse-urban outfitters
skirt-topshop sale
shoes-dr martens (ebay)
over worn belt-asos
bolo tie-topman 

this isn't a very practical outfit for the weather but i promise i wore a large coat over the top.
the photos don't give this skirt any justice as the camera didn't pick the detail of the checked pattern and the belt alters the shape, but i adore it. (minus how short it is,oops)
these are my favourite shoes, they're so comfy and warm and go with a lot of outfits, perfect for wintery months and summer.
i haven't been able to post much due to my poor boyfriend being in a work accident and being in hospital with a broken pelvis, but he's getting there and should be up and walking in 2-3 months :)

turtle neck sparkle top-vintage 
leather trousers-topshop
velvet flatforms-ASOS.

heres a very simple outfit i put together, i love how its black on black but the sparkle of the top makes the outfit stand out, i love turtle neck jumpers, they're great for winter and look great.
i adore these velvet flatforms, i haven't wore them yet as i haven't found an outfit they go with but they contrast really well with the black.

bowler hat-asos

i took these photos to try and create a ghostly effect for my friends art project, you cant really see the photos properly due to the blur buti love this dress, it reminds me of snow white with the collar and the shape of the dress, the pattern and the colours are so pretty and its great for both summer and winter.
