Collage and Fashion

"Ah, they were good days. When we spent all our time fighting bulls and each other.
We were great rivals, even then."

Collage and Fashion

Dress in the Afternoon

Built upon the layers of dress, the myth of man is a collage of metaphor and reality, a tradition and a copy.

Collage and Fashion

Through-out this year I have been working hard on my final year of study (in Fashion Design) for my thesis and Bachelor. I have been concentrating on how the art of collage and fashion (and dress) inspire one another. And also how fashion and the act of dressing is much like a collage of its own; a physical layering of many items to convey one unique composition.

I have been researching this relationship between collage and design, and have also become a practitioner of collage through my studies.
Here are some of my initial works that have inspired my designing process, and allowed me to analyses the components of masculinity as well as the layers within male dress.

I will post up some more Uni goodies soon! :D

Russian Tales - Sadko

Last night I was watching this really great movie. Well to be precise, a Russian Fairy Tale! and it was soooo magical! i loved it!
.......such a perfect way to escape my reality of the mountainous uni work which awaits my weekend!

This movie was made in 1952, and is based on the famous Russian tale of Sadko, the minstrel from Novgorod.
Sadko embarks on a quest to find the bird of happiness, which takes him to all the ends of the earth, including the bottom of the sea!

I loved the sweetness of the story, especially the message; that happiness is to be found among the people you love and your home.

Also the costumes were wonderful and the incredible "underwater" set was soooo delightful!!
