ARTIST JOWY MAASAMME

-Tonight-

PARIS AW13
-Depicted as seen by Jowy Maasdamme-

I'm loving researching Fashion illustrators at the moment, it's amazing the talent you find hidden away in the crevices of the interweb! Someone I'm very excited about is Jowy Maasanme, her work is eerie, beautiful, dark, weird and many more art-sy, poetic adjectives. 
My attention was drawn after seeing her illustrations featured on Nick Nights Show Studio as a guest contributor, depicting her take on Paris fashion week AW13. Instantly I loved her use odd proportions and corpse like beings, each with their own unique look and personality. I have collected my favorites, which I've featured in this post along with a beautiful depiction of McQueen ss13 also by Jowy.

All AW13 images from the showstudio website and the McQueen SS13 images are from Jowy Maasamme's blog

UP ALL NIGHT


-Tonight- 


A shoot I did for Tabitha Magazine Issue 3 back in October that I thought Id share with you guys.
This was a brilliant day spent in an old abandoned building full of all the exciting cliches of a scary haunt. Things like holes in the floor, pigeons in the roof and missing windows were abundant!

All of the creepiness was set off by the elegant, creative styling from fellow bloggers Una and Louise, 2/3rds of the masterminds behind Tabitha Magazine AND Tabitha Vintage.
You can see my post on the images from the website HERE
The third member of this exciting team is Shane O'Connor, the man behind the lens and Photographer extraordinair with a great eye for a fashion image.

Below is also a 'Making of Issue Three' video which is awesome, it even shows a glimpse of my first shoot for Tabitha Vintage!

VINTAGE IS - TABITHA

-Happy Friday all-



So last week i ventured out to Tabitha hq, home of Tabitha Vintage, Tabitha Magazine, Shane O'Connor Photography and Sketchy Inc. There was many a chat and laugh to be had but i was actually on a mission you see. The lovely Tabi girls Una and Louise request the use of my little face for the new Tabitha vintage lookbook. This was my second time featuring for T.V (ah Tabitha Vintage ya see what i did there) and each time i work with these guys i literally laugh from begining to end. Needless to see when the call came i was more than a little excited meet up again and this time in the bonafied new Tabi hq (which really is beyond trendy- yes i just said trendy).

The images have now gone live on the website, so i thought i would share them with you and theres even a little screenshot of me on the website Above :)

Lots more exciting posts coming you're way over the next few weeks so stay tuned yippee...

SUPER NATURAL- LOVE MAGAZINE

"Featured in issue 6 of LOVE Magazine this shoot really is from another planet."


-Happy Monday Lovelies-
For me Monday is a day of fashion research and winding down after the weekend of working.
oh and cleaning the house this is a mundane Monday activity which always manages to encroach on my grand, sartorial plans involving nothing but a mug of coffee, my mac and a pen and pad (for all my confusing inner thoughts and ideas for my blog). 
However a tidy house is a tidy mind and right now mines verging on minimalist! Happy :).

I've been a busy (quiet) bee recently as I have some exiting things rustling in the pipeline involving lots of brainstorming, research and whispers. 
One morsel I will share is that 'Rough Dreams Fashion Week Edit' will be coming back again this season for a grand return to haphazard glory. Lovingly compiled just for you guys- my lovely readers, so stay tuned for my take on the perfect world fashion week.

Tonight is a stunning shoot by an extremely talented bunch of fashion pros.
Photography by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
Fashion Editors Katie Grand and Panos Yiapanis
