New Arrivals

Thursday, 25 June 2015

Last week there was a photo shoot for new arrivals so Lately I've been making more of the Print two pieces. I made the first sample in the new fabric that is floral and orange and they look really nice in that print and have been selling really well, perfect for festival season or holidays.
They are still in Topshop Liverpool, whereas the brown floral print ones are just on the website. Other new arrivals include one in paisley and an off the shoulder dress.
I've also been working on the pattern for a black bodycon dress that will hopefully be out in a few weeks. it was really good to be more involved in that as I made the sample as well to see what needs to be changed and tweaked and next week I'll be helping grade the pattern for sizing. 
I'm also going to be carrying on with research for Autumn winter for what can begin to go onto Topshop  mid summer so its good to be looking ahead ad seeing what colours and fabrics are going to be used!

'The Plastic Age' Editorial Shoot

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

A few weeks ago I got asked to make some garments for Grace Kenny Who has recently completed her degree in BA Fashion promotion with styling at Uclan. 
Her shoot for her final project was based on the 'Plastic Age' and how plastic is valuable for our future ans how much it is used.
So after looking at some of her inspo imagery and colour palettes i looked at fabrics that would suit and made up a skirt, bralette, dress and jacket (worn backwards in the shot)
Its really cool to work with stylists to see how the garments made will go together in the shoot, with the set and accessories. 
The photographer is also a Uclan student, Emma Louise Carney and the shots have come out really nice.
I really enjoyed helping out with this project as it was good to work with different fabrics and have a deadline to work to.
Check out Grace's other work on her online portfolio: Gracekennystyling and her instagram: @gracemkenny 

Past few weeks...

Monday, 8 June 2015

Its been nearly a month since I last posted about what I've been up to in Liverpool.
It's flown by been there for just over 5 weeks, so before I head there today I'm gonna update this just to remind myself as well!
Its been all about festival fashion and summer coords like these two in the lovely bright prints. The pink one is currently in Topshop Liverpool priced at £28 for the top and £23 for matching shorts.
I've mostly been making things to go into Topshop concessions such as the crochet tassel tops and other summer items.
Its a fast paced place to work there's always things to do. At the moment we're having a think about whats gonna be happening for Autumn Winter.... Already!
I always get asked to try things on to test fit and how they look, not always the greatest person being annoyingly small cant really get a decent idea of the right length when doing samples haha. 
For my next post i'll try get more photos of what i've been doing!
