Brighter than the sun


 


My most favorite pieces for spring and summer are maxi and midi skirts. This skirt I purchased on Asos and if you read my blog, I have mention it before on my wish list for the summer. I love the skirt so much I had to purchase 3 of them in different colors (red, yellow, black). Before this summer I didn't take risks in my outfits regarding colors. I mostly wore black & white, grey, beige and sometimes a bit of light pink. But I have decided to change that and be more creative with the colors so I have purched a bunch of new clothes for this summer, changing 80% of my wardrobe. And yellow is my new favorite color for this season.

This might be off the topic but I have recently watch Dawn of the planet of the Apes. I didn't expect much since I watched the first one and it didn't get me really excited to see how it continues. However I was really impressed and really enjoyed it I had to go watch it twice. The think I like more in this movie than other action movies is the fact that it contains so much emotion. The fact that a family of apes can be so protective of each other got me thinking. Such a sweet movie, I definitely recommend.

Lace shorts & gladiator sandals

So my boyfriend came to London to visit me a couple of days ago so I looked for a few nice places to visit with him. He isn't so much into museums but more into open spaces. So to take a full advantage of the nice weather we went to London City Hall where they have a huge park near the river with a view to Tower Bridge. I'm not so much of an explorer so I don't like to walk around to find nice places to see. That is maybe the main reason why I don't know much about London even though I have lived here for 4 years. However, I like to visit places and I'm very open to suggestions guys :)

More about my outfit; I have been looking for these lace shorts for so long and discovered them recently on inthestyle.co.uk. They made of very light material so it's perfect for summer. I also love the summer flower prints. I paired the shorts with my favorite gladiator sandals from Quiz, they can give a very original touch to every outfit. Hope you like it.

Untitled

This is photoshoot that I took a while ago but never published. The reason is because I wasn't quite satisfied with how the outfit looks on the pictures and picture quantity was also limited. But I thought I would share it with you with a quick outfit post anyway. Hope you like it :)

UCA Graduate fashion week

So recently I had a chance to attend the UCA (University of the Creative Arts) graduate fashion show. I was a great opportunity to see other people's work from other universities, not only from London but also other great universities out of London. To be honest, it did inspire me a lot to see what I should expect for next year (Yes, I'm graduating next year. Getting nervous...). There were so-o many portfolios, illustrations, photographs etc. It was a shame I couldn't see them all.





And here comes the Ravensbourne stand :) ! (If you don't know already, I'm a Ravensbourne girl ;))

Amazing moodboard by Lauren Laurent



Yes, I had to take a picture next to the mood board :D. For the show I wore skinny distressed jeans, combined with a spaghetti strap top with a white blazer and court heels. Very simple.


And now about the show. I have divided them into categories (bear in mind that they are all based on my opinion so no need to get offended) such as; The best prints, The most creative, The best textile, The most interesting, My favorite collection etc.and also my most favorite garments. So check them out.

1. The most interesting

This collection is, I believe based on packaging of different kind of junk food and treats...? It does remind me a lot of the Moschino Autumn/Winter 14-15 collection by Jeremy Scott. The style is very much different but the idea is very similar. I really liked it because of the popping colors. My favorite piece from the collection is the Pringles jacket (not just because I enjoy eating Pringles :D).

Collection by Eujean Cha








Another collection I found interesting is by Sarah E Blake. I didn't take many photos of this collection because I wanted to enjoy it. I remember it very well because of the great choice of music that went with it. It surely made the mood (You can check it out in a short video on my instagram).



This next collection is by

2. Best Textile


This is also one of my most favorite collections from the show. My favorite piece is the red jacket. I love the silhouette, the colour, the texture.. just perf. Also the purple cape and the pink dress, just brilliant!

Collection by Katie Jane Simmonds.











This next collection is by Zahra Yasmine Azam. She went for ethnic prints with bold colors and slight touch of neon green. My favorite piece is the dress, mostly because of the texture.







3. Favorite pieces



This dress is by Karina Jemmott. I really love the floaty, dreamy feeling of it.
This coat by Olivia Yates-Housley is just top!
This dress by Minuse Agasil made the model look like a Greek goddess.

4. Favorite collection

This minimalist all-white collection is by Poppy Gooderick. I'm personally not so into minimalist fashion but this collection just really caught my eyes. It's maybe the fact that white is my favorite color or maybe it's the way it was presented- very neat. Using white as the main color, she made the collection look very pure and feminine yet very strong. I just love it! (Excuse the photo quality. My camera died I had to take the pictures with my phone :( )

This might be irrelevant but this year I had the chance to help backstage for the Ravensbourne Graduate Fashion Show. It was very exciting with a lot of awesome collections. However I didn't have the chance to see the whole show which was a shame :(. Here are some pictures from backstage.
