Things are getting exciting.

So after a horrendous long week of work and no play i had a brilliant friday.
After finding out ill be able to work alongside an amazing photographer with a small internship in a amazing and beautiful studio in the city i was also asked to shoot a collection a dear friend has designed.
And to make matters even better me and my partner in crime have made it official, we are now collaborating as one. This seems confusing which i understand but basically we will be working side by side with all our shoots to hopefully create beautiful images with the input and ideas from two different points of view which i'm obviously over the moon about.
I got the idea from two photographers in american called mert&marucs whom work side by side to create beautiful fashion images, so now i'm going to post some brilliant inspiration and some of there work to get the creative blood flowing.

All of these are taken by Mert&Marcus and i don't even think i was able to do them justice but seriously have a little squiz on google, these men are gods.

Step two of this blog is more so about things i would cut my right arm of for right now, basically i'm constantly in this state of "that is amazing would anyone like to give me $5000 to buy it ?" Because i'm a pitiful art student and we never have any money (trust me, we don't)

                                                       Christopher Kane 2012 Resort.
I think the reason i am so baffled by this collection is because i actually wouldn't wear most of this (id wear those amazing maroon/purple/shiny pants on the far right and the dress second from the left for sure) but in all honestly i don't think i would be able to pull of a lot of this and as a result wouldn't wear it however that dose not stop the fact i want to own it. i want it to be in my closet so i can touch it and feel it and inhale it. And you know your good when you make clothing that someone wants to own with no desire and or intention of ever actually wearing. Bravo.

                                                           Marc Jacobs 2012 Resort
Florals getting sophisticated and serious, need i say more ? I would like the outfit second from the right, the floral dress after that and the red playsuit please. Anyone who would like to drop this of at my place as a gift for being such a great person give me a buzz and ill even buy you a coffee.

                                                     Proenza Schouler Resort 2012
I would eat my left arm for the dress and pant suit on the left, i am willing to eat my arm on camera, please someone buy this and make me eat my arm. 

                                                      Alexander Wang Resort 2012
I have a big soft sport for mr wang (i generally refer to him as Awang when alone). In my eyes the man can do no wrong he is blessed with a gift, the gift of making me want to spend lots of dollars on his creations and id say thats a pretty darn good gift to have. 

so now i have lost interest in blogging, ill keep this updated with how everything is going and i'm pretty excited about life right now.
smell you later !

All nostalgic and shit.

So i recently had a good friend post a picture i took of her on facebook and i realised how much i loved doing my HSC work and decided to post some pictures to make myself feel better about the fact my creativity has been none existent since starting uni holidays.

I basically took lots of rolls of film of girls in next to nothing (note i wanted to do the whole thing with total nudity but was told my work would be disqualified because the human body is obviously a hideous site.) Anyway this all came after the whole Bill Henson "scandal" which obviously played into my aesthetic alot but it was more about how for years in the fashion industry women have been used as a tool, a coat hanger if you will, for clothing so my aim was to make the dress show off the women instead of the other way around. Basically its all film, i sewed together every last photograph with a sewing machine and it took alot of prototypes but in the end i think its my favourite piece of work to date
