20th June 2013. 100% Fashion Catwalk.

20th June 2013 was the 100% Fashion Show, this is a fashion show that showcases the work from the past year from all the fashion courses taught at North Hertfordshire College. This is where my Foundation Degree was taught in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire.

The garments I showcased were my 'Great Outdoors' pieces and my 'Land Before Time' Collection. I have shown bits and pieces from my LBT collection lately but this was the first time all five pieces were up together. 

When I knew they would be coming on next I had this overwhelming feeling in my chest, like is this it, all my hard work for these 2 minutes. I wasn't worried about how the girls would do because I knew no matter what they did they would make it look amazing.

 My models were:
Great Outdoors: Ben Jarvis. Finlay Parfitt.
Land Before Time(In order):  Carmen Pat, Finlay Parfitt, Yvonne Zhang, Waiman Law, Magda Kurkowska.

So without further ado, please enjoy~

Lastly here is the video of my Land Before Time Catwalk. Please enjoy~

Recent gets~

SO since I've started working I've been able to buy a few things here and there that I've been wanting for a while. So without further ado here are my recent gets: 

W♥C Tattoo tights:

I don't think these are real W♥C mainly because they only cost me 99p. Either way I love these tights and they got such a good reaction at Uni. 

 Ahcahcum Muchacha Cat Handbag:
I saw this bag everywhere on tumblr and instagram for ages and I was like 'OMG ultimate cat lady bag' so after long deliberation with myself and with that voice in my head saying 'Do I really need another bag?' I decided to buy 3am in the morning.....I have no regrets.

OMG Moustache Tattoo Tights:

These are honestly the most amazing pair of tights I own....and I own quite a few pairs including dinosaur ones I made myself. I wore these out about 2 weeks ago and I love them. I wanted to live in them. they are so soft. 

 Luminous Change Eyelash - 09 Bottom Lash:
I believe these are called Super Size Eye, but I'm not too sure. Ages ago Gigi messaged me asking if I'd like these as she needed a certain amount to get free shipping, I said yes, I needed new bottom lashes and these are pretty. I haven;t worn them out the house yet I've just tried them at home, going to do a lash review soon.

Soft Cash Book:
One of my biggest problems in life is tracking my finances, however with being paid every 2 weeks (Yes I'm a lucky bugger) I need a way I can track my money without having to relay on the internet. This way I can also keep a track on what i spent my money on, including when I withdraw. I'm hoping this will help me out, I only received this book about 2 days ago so I need to start filling it in but I have hope.

Well that's what I have purchased in the past month, I'm not gonna be spending any more for a while now (I hope I stick to this) because I'm aiming to buy material to make more clothes for my shop that I am starting.

Saturday 8th June 2013.

Through the connections of the College/University I attended for my 2 year Foundation degree, at the end of every year several catwalks are held. This is a great way for us to showcase our work and for the models to get a feel of everything before our final, major end of year show.

Saturday 8th June 2013, there was a small show held in Letchworth Garden City. In a marquee tent in the middle of the green my models got to show off my lovely fmp collection. Sadly I only had 3 models on the day and they had to be stretched across the board anyway so I only got to showcase 3 of my outfits. I went with my 3 best ones in the hopes of showcasing the best of my abilities. 

Lt-Rt: Magda, Tracey and Mary.

These 3 girls were lovely and really worked the catwalk to show off my childish yet adult wear designs.

Hopefully it will run smoothly on the 20th June when the end of year show is where I will be showcasing all 5 pieces of my Land Before Time collection which I am very excited about. 

What do you think of my Dino girls? Don;t they just look so cute~

Land Before Time.

Finally I have got around the posting these up. So many will know that I have finished my foundation degree in Fashion and textiles. I am just awaiting results now and whether i will be in the 1 or 2 year top up. 

For my Final Major Collection i decided on the theme of prehistoric beasts. My garment research was into hanboks and asos who were also my target audience. I created a 5 piece collection which i named 'The Land Before Time'

So without further ado. I present my collection~

1 Dinosaur short and lyrca crop top.

2 Overprint tank top dress with Dino jacket and printed tights.

3 Maxi dress with Dino jacket.

4 Skater skirt with printed lyrca bralett and Dino jacket.

5 Yoke dress with Hanbok jacket.

So thats my collection. What do you guys think?? Would you buy it if Asos sold it?
