CARA DELEVINGNE

             At first, I thought the obsession with Cara Delevingne was a bit overrated... But recently, she has grown on me and I have to say that I think she's FAB! Definitely my top model of the moment! I love how quirky and fun she is, she gives clothes character. Below are some fashion films starring Cara that you will LOVE!...


Enjoy!

UNIVERSITY PROJECT - DIY FASHION

            We were recently given a pre-Christmas project, where the brief was to pick an object and create a fashion item from it. Once made, we were to work in groups of 4 to style and direct a photoshoot to display our creations. My group chose to theme our items on DIY. I made a jacket and crop top out of gaffa tape and electrical tape but we also used nails, bolts, paint rollers and wall insulation. Below you can see my jacket as well as other examples of our photoshoot...
