lee paton...london fashion week sept 2010...

collection inspired by poem...
"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"


loved this collection...really delicate.
the show seemed to follow quite a dark stroryline.
love how its connection to the sea was more involved around pearls, textures and felt traditioanlly english... rather than following anchors, stripes, etc.

i fell in love with lee's collections after working at his show showing his summer 2010 collection "A Summer Since Passed".

"The collection - "A Summer Since Passed" - is based on old English summers of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. I read a lot of Victorian literature, which has inspired the characters wearing the garments, along with Peter Weir’s film ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ and Renoir’s ‘Le déjeuner des canotiers’."

the venue, wilton's music hall, with 'hendricks gin' attending the bar made for a perfect setting for the collection.

things i'm liking looking at


a mini tribute to those responsible for a tiptop summer…

“MC Mr Bruce and Mr Chuckles collaborate to make Hip Hop for the 1930s, Big Band music for the 00s. Splicing swing samples with squelchy synths over dusty drum loops they’ve depicted a modern day journey into time of rogue’s, lust, affordable clowns and foot-tapping toe curling "get your brogues on" dance floor swing beat.”

watch at...

for all the business I do!!?

I need some time to develop these and make more, but happy with these as a starting point.

...birthday notice board!!?

i found a frame in a charity shop and made it into a notice board for my friend rak's birthday..(http://thisisrak.blogspot.com/)

curriculum vitea…

once I started to think about how i was going to package the one minute animation i had made (see next post),
i started to develop it into something that will add more information about me as a designer.

I wanted to create something that was a little interactive.
something that would create more interest than your standard paper CV.

me in one minute

this brief was asking us to create something that was one minute long.
it was to act as self promotion.
who am i, what can i do...

some stills of the animation...until i can get the video up..

there are a few aspects i would like to tweek, (speed in certian areas).
but i think it sums me up.
now for packaging...

UPDATE- watch here..
