London College of Fashion students team up with Salvation Army Trading Co to promote sustainable fashion

Finally some news ! The project I completed in June in collaboration with Salvation Army to promote Sustainable fashion has now been returned from Brimingham Clothing Show and was on display in their flagship store on Oxford Circus !

The aim of this collaboration was to show we can create a desirable garments out of donated clothing. I used three pairs of donated british army uniform trousers to create a biker jacket . Here are the results :

A Mention by hollywood.com for their Beyond the Row fashion news feature

So as you know, I have posted previously about my trip to Paris for my 'big' 22nd birthday .. and the amazing show's I got to see.  In a quick hurry on route to Nina Ricci I had some pictures taken,  which I was send a link to later on, but as my name was spelled incorrectly .. I never manage to claim them :( So it was a lovely surprise to have a friend of mine send me a link from Beyond the Row with their 'Cat out the Bag' fashion news section she found in Google whilst researching some imagery. ( thanks Natalie ! ).

Burberry Prorsum SS14 ... best of London Fashion Week

A definite highlight for me was the Burberry show.  I watched it live online and was amazed . With a previous project in lace I was taken a back with  Christopher Bailey's approach to it. I am gratified to see I can still be surprised by a designer, and have that ' wow' moment .
