Visual power - Attract, delight, seduce
Visual communication - Inform, underpin & explain
Visual interest - Revive, refresh, sustain

Contrast can be used as a useful visual approach & can inform various key aspects: Narrative focus, location, model casting, styling, prop selection etc..

Here's my colour chart that includes corresponding colours that are in the two images. In our lecture we learnt about colour behaviours and colour selection. The aim was to understand how colour behaviour plays a key role in many tasks such as: presenting, buying, styling, editing...etc
I chose these two specific images because they had a sporty feel which worked well with my given brand - Ellesse.

Button up and get your thermals on. This winter I'm in awe with over sized coats that are taking over streets & shows.  
Here are a few styles I adore...

Stella McCartney
Proenza Schouler
Proenza Schouler
Richard Nicoll

Victoria Beckham

Tomboy: Sporty bombers with muted shades, tough zip fastenings, deep pockets and wide hoods, bring a relaxed streetwise spin to the winter cover-up.
Oversize: Put down those boyfriend jeans and swap them for soft curving shoulders, shapely silhouettes and luxurious cashmere mixes of these cocoon style coats, guaranteed to keep you warm and looking on point this winter.

It's that time of year again, where your emails fill to the brim promoting us with tempting mid season sales... like we already need more temptation.
Let me inform you, it's not easy being a student and you have next to no money, its even worse when you enjoy fashion and clothes as much as I do and you're counting those pennies.
Taking this all in, I cant control my obsessive behaviour and my spendings are just the bane of my life, here are a few purchases from COS, Topshop and Uniqlo.

From 2011 - 2013, I was studying a  Diploma in Art and design. 

My time there I gained a series of skills from various workshops. The areas I enjoyed most and became really interested in were Fashion, Textiles and Graphics.
From these 3 workshops the time came to decide what I wanted to do for my FMP and how I would project this.

After a lot of thinking and stress and last minute research of irrelevant subject matters, I finally came up to a conclusion to base my project on the perception of beauty.. What is beauty? Who defines what is beautiful or not?
To expand on this, I chose to take a new approach on how I would present this big subject matter that has an affect on majority of young women. I wanted to show a darker, more comical side to the average perfect photoshopped model we see on Vogue, Harpers Bazaar etc..


A week ago my course was given a task to research and explore the wide concept of Street style.
We had to compare and track different style tribes in Nottingham for new exciting place for style trends and individualism.
I learnt that it's not solely important to only look for the generic pictures of good of looking people, it's about discovering style influencers that no one else has.
Here are a few images that caught my eye, it just so coincidentally happens to be that all these people are very kind to the eyes...
