(bus back to harvey nicks, an interesting picture of me taken by my boyfriend! Not sure what happened to the camera?!?! But I like it!)

As I mentioned previously I went to see the Harvey Nichols Autumn Winter Fashion Show.
The night was fantastic! And best of all the outfits put together were all a bit inspirational.

My favourite section was 'Collage Prints', i'm a massive Mary katrantzou fan and the dress they picked for look 1 of this section was a stunning piece from her Autumn Winter 11 collection.
The other winner winner piece for me was the 3.1 by Philip Lim beaded tunic. Right up my road that sort of thing!

Saw a beautiful post on illustrator Lisa Stannards blog about the show and her interpretation of the outfits . . . . here.
I love the way she's done the 3.1 by Philip Lim beaded tunic outfit, she's also just posted a picture from her first year at man met uni, which makes me miss Manchester School of Art EVEN MORE!!

The show was held at Manchester Town Hall which was stunning! I was only in their a few months ago for my graduation but never saw any of the grand rooms scattered in history!

I have got all sorts of articles that are sat on my desk top ready to be posted but I have been strapped for time. Have been to Tenerife for a week and am now very busy back at work
(Interning as a junior designer at Ringspun, Manchester). The actual offices where the Ringspun design team work are really interesting. Walls scattered with ramskulls, memorabilia, art etc. So the pics I've taken will be posted at some point.

At the moment I am working on the label Elvis Jesus which is owned by Ringspun. Fun times! Have learned a great deal about branding ideas and am getting better with my Illustrator skills (I'm a photoshop girl through and through!)

And whilst all of this is going on I am designing and sewing a line of bags, inspired mostly by the blogging world. Inspiration behind this project . . . . here.

I CANNOT wait to share the images of these bags and the development of testing and sampling.
