The Print Collection

A lovely little drawing by my friend Abbey Watkins to celebrate a special project I've been working on.
I've been blogging, tweeting and instagramming about the development of a print collection. A new set of my print designs will be available to buy on  portfolio clutch bags (just like the one above) and silk scarves. 
The fabrics all arrived today so the next phase can go ahead and I've never been so excited! 
You can see lots of behind the scenes images on my instagram here.

Pictures from a shoot I did with photographer Emma Pilkington
They have such a light and airy feeling to them. These days a lot of fashion photography is very sharp and precise, as much as I do like that style sometimes it's nice to have something a little dreamy and mysterious.

Clothes: All made by me

Have been having fun with my logo stamper. It now is a sneaky bit of branding that has crept into the lining of some new bags. I've stuck with this logo since a project in my 2nd year at uni. It's everywhere, on my business cards, invoices, website title etc.

Get this hand dyed and metallic mini clutch bag here.

Natalia Grzybowski Spring Summer 2012

What a stunner of a collection, and even better when you read the intro that explains the range, see it at her blog here

Love that you can see the pieces before and after the print.

Another amazing Australian based designer to add to the list, all in the name of research before I head there myself this september.
