I went to this Exhibition a few months ago, but forgot to blog about it! In October I visited MADEMOISELLE PRIVÉ, an exhibition showing the journey through Chanel’s creations, it was at the Saatchi Gallery and I went with my mum and sister. Chanel the brand and Karl Lagerfeld have been such an inspiration to me, so being able to walk through his creations was amazing. Each room had its own theme and was decorated accordingly. My favorite rooms were: the perfumery which had moving, smoking bowls of perfume, it was very dramatic and the room was filled with the smell of Chanel No.5. Another room that I spent a lot of time in was the Haute Couture room, filled with many of Chanel’s classic dresses. The dresses were on mannequins that had a light all the way through it, illuminating the garments in a dark room. As I studied fashion photography at University my favourite room was “Bijoux de Diamants”, filled portraits. I am so glad I was able to visit this exhibition, it was absolutely breathtaking.

London Fashion Week is nearly here!!! Over the past few days I have been sorting out my camera equipment and schedule for fashion week, my weapons of choice are; Canon 5D Mark ii 24-105mm, Canon 50 mm lens, Canon 85mm lens and Canon 300mm lens. I have chosen these particular pieces of equipment as I am completing an Internship over fashion week with a London Magazine called Noctis. Over the weekend, I will be shooting street style photography for their magazine, so these lenses and camera body will be perfect (see images below). Noctis is a London-based magazine which:
"Is based on a sense of escapism; it’s about coming together to find a deeper meaning in the lonesome hours. Noctis offers a platform to create something special away from the conventions of mainstream media. Everyone that works and Interns at Noctis has a common feat, a love and passion for the creative arts”.This is my third year at London fashion week, I have had the opportunity to shoot catwalks in the past, but I am super excited to Intern for a Magazine where my images are going to be used.

I was contacted by FARFETCH to enter their "STYLE THE SHOOT: SUNGLASSES" Competition, I have to style a look based around a pair of sunglasses.

I have been super inactive on my blog for the past few months as I have been writing my Dissertation for University, However I submitted it the other day so I’m backkkkk! Now I have some serious catching up to do with thing I have done over the past six months. In December I modelled for my best friend Josh Benmore, for his Final Major Project at University. In josh’s words “it is inspired by mid century fashion and classic James Bond movies and girls. Other inspirations were by my artwork and religious iconography in pop culture." In the studio we had old school James Bond songs playing to set the scene, I had so much fun modelling for Josh. Here are 2 of my favorite images from the photo-shoot:

Yesterday I went to my first festival of the summer, Ascot Tea Party. The main acts headlining this year were DJ EZ, JAGUAR SKILLS and DJ SKT. I have seen JAGUAR SKILLS at Camp Bestival in 2011, however I have wanted to see DJ EZ for ages and can say he did not disappoint! I had a fantastic time with my group of friends and now can not wait for the rest of the Festivals I have planned this summer! As English weather is known for being very unpredictable I decided to wear leggings and a body. Outfit Information: Body: “Basic Jersey Bodysuit Black” from Missguided.Trainers: NIKE from Office.Leggings: from Topshop.Fanny pack: From a vintage shop called Wildpony- made from recycled denim Jeans.

I went to view the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Alexander McQueen has been my favourite fashion designer since I started GCSE fashion design. This exhibition was very important for me to go and visit as I am basing a huge part of my dissertation on Mcqueen and his different collections. The exhibition showcases all the very best collections he created, as well as headpieces, shoes, body armor and jewellery that you can view up-close. This allows the public to experience first hand how detailed and elaborate his work really is. The collections are separated into different rooms with different music and quotes to match the feel of the collection being shown. One of my favorite rooms were displaying McQueen’s “Eshu” Autumn/Winter 2000 collection. Inspired by a tribe, the room was covered from ceiling to floor in bones, the lighting was very dim and the music was powerful, like the beat of a jungle drum. As you walked in, it was as if you were being transported to a different world.
