this is the start of one of my prints, this is the style in which i have decided to go for. i like the idea of mixing real life photography with my own drawings.


I have been looking for ideas for themes and styles for my print designs.
I started looking at the Elsa Schiaparelli website as i was researching for my dissertation and just fell in love with this quirky, surreal look. I feel that i could come up with some really interesting and bold print designs in this style.

I also came across a website called www.thetravellingtiles.com
This again is a very quirky website and the artist creates these images (below) and puts them on tiles. I think that these are all gorgeous images and they all go along the same surrealism theme.

Final Major Project

Over the last couple of weeks i have been researching and collection information for my final major project.

I want to develop my skills as far as i can, therefore for my initial ideas have decided to create a collection that has been inspired by lingerie, or outfits that have a lingerie feel about them.

These images are from Dolce and Gabbana have really inspired me. i love the shapes created and the feel of lingerie about them. I feel that doing something like this for my final major project will really help me develop as a student so i can finish my degree as a confident graduate.

these images taken from Jean Paul Gaultier spring 2010 collection. I love these two images, they are exactly the kind of style that i am thinking about, something that is not obviously underwear but has that feel about them.
