Anyone Can Get Dressed Up

3rd and last day in Hong Kong...I have enjoyed just wandering around because I am saving my $$$ for London and Paris!!! But I do want to check out the fabric markets because in 3rd year, the head teacher takes all the students to HK to buy supplies for their final collections and I want to get an idea of what kind of stuff they stock here. Lol, I'm so optimistic to be thinking that far ahead.

And She's Off...

Tomorrow I head overseas for 2 months but I have pre-posted some pretty things for you so you don't miss out while I'm away! And hopefully I'll get the chance to share some photos along the way. (It might mean that comments will take awhile to appear though - sorry in advance.) Ciao!

Mad Hatter

This is the first color illustration I've done that in the end I actually liked! And ironically the original photo was in black and white... Drawing comes more easily to me than designing, but it's still just a bit of a fun to me - nothing serious, or seriously awesome, like Decade Diary, Igor + Andre or Birdy & Me to name a few. :)

Gouache wash and colored pencil.

For this illustration, we could only use vertical strokes. It was quite a challenge but I'm happy with how it turned out!

Oh, The Horror

AW 2008/09 Rodarte - inspired by Japanese horror films, with red dye intended to evoke the look of blood in water.

Abstraction, Step 1

Hi guys. Just wanted to share a pencil sketch (from this editorial) which I later traced off into a line drawing and abstracted into several Picasso-esque drawings for my Concept Development class. I will be posting more of my stuff from school over the next couple of weeks...It's nice to be able to look back on this whirlwind year.


I've grown addicted to ...etc , a great blog of "extras" by the author of Le Fashion, Le Love, Le Smoking and Olsens Anonymous. (I don't know how she manages FIVE blogs; I can barely cope with one!)

Dress Rehearsal

Here are some backstage photos from The Fashion Design Studio's parade last week. The models took part in a dress rehearsal, during which judges determined the winner of this year's DYLON competition, themed "The Country, The Print".

(Mine is in the last photo, second from the left. To my complete shock, I was the runner-up!)

Alice in Wonderland

This Vogue editorial by Annie Liebovitz has been much blogged about but I can't resist jumping on the bandwagon. I love how Karl refused to play a character!
