I have been trying to work on some fashion illustration in Photoshop and also get to grips with using a graphic tablet. I scanned in one of my designs and this is what I came up with. OK, so La GaGa might not exactly be my target market at the moment, but I would be in heaven were she to strut her stuff in one of my designs. So if Lady Gaga's agent is looking in the blogosphere ...... Naturally I don't put my BEST designs on the blog as I want them to be snapped up at New Designers in June 2011.

Apologies to my followers for the enforced silence of the last few weeks. I have been having major techno problems with my internet connection. I am happy to say that all is resolved so I will be posting regularly again.
I can't believe it is reading week already at Northbrook - I had forgotten how fast the time goes when it is sliced up into projects, deadlines and semesters. The last five weeks have flown past in a flurry of activity and ideas - it is great to be back in the studio and part of a creative group.
So, on with the show! I am doing a fashion fabric project based on florals, sustainability and embellishment. I have chosen to use found fabrics, threads and trims so my designs will be upcycled from vintage odds and ends. I have been looking at lace and translating the patterns into drawings. Here is one I made earlier. The exciting bit comes next when I translate the drawing into a fabric sample.
