Since I designed this bag to accompany the final year degree collection, i've had a few requests off people wanting to buy one for themselves. I will eventually put the collection of bags in an online shop via my website. There is also a collection of digitally printed scarves ready to be photographed for the shop. Its all very exciting and since Ive left uni I've enjoyed carrying on the design journey! (sad!) I actually can not switch off that print design switch in my head . . . . example.
The lining of the bag pictured above is digitally printed, a few people wanted the actual outside of the bag printed instead, some with embellishment and some without.
So this week I have been doodling and drawing, coming up with possibilites for the print and maybe new ideas. I embellished this particular bag with steel nuts and faceted diamonds but Ive been sampling other ideas. Will post about them soon. Which of the bags above would you buy?
I have an interview tomorrow for a fashion design internship. Wish me luck!
I had to get these out of my laptop and onto my blog, as soon as I saw this collection it fascinated me. It looks tribal but still has that Balmania effect.
A few of the pieces really remind me of givenchy's autumn winter prints, a lot of people are also saying its very like Emilio Pucci. This is Olivier Rousteing's first collection at Balmain so the world is probably waiting with bated breath. According to style.com Elvis was a reference point for one of the evening jackets which was beaded in red, navy, gold, and white and trimmed in gold chains.
What do you think? Personally I think its amazing!
