A Year Later | Fashion, Farming and Everything In Between

Let's just take it back to this time last year..

I had just moved to London, with a one way flight and a few days booked in an Airbnb. I didn't have any long term accommodation or work arranged, no real plan, I had just decided I'd take a chance. I can safely say that taking that chance has led to every single opportunity, that I've had in the last year.

I flew to London on the 30th of July 2016, I spent a few days house hunting and a week or two applying for various jobs and internships. I then got offered an internship at the Gareth Pugh Studio for the run up to London Fashion Week, working on the SS17 collection.


Over three weeks ago now since this incredible SS17 show.. throwback to the calm before the storm 🙈 . . . @garethpughstudio #garethpugh #ss17 #londonfashion…

Introducing My Store On RedBubble

Image
So you may have read in my last post that I was planning some design related projects of my own... and here it is!

Introducing you to my RedBubble store and my first collection available to purchase: 'Fashion Workspace'.



This will bring you directly to my main page, where you can then click 'Shop..' or 'Portfolio..'

'Shop' will show you products at random and 'Portfolio' will show you the original prints. The prints are available on multiple products, which you can see by clicking into the product/print and then scrolling down and clicking  'Available Products'

If you're looking for a specific product, you can select it from the list of available products in the sidebar.





‘Fashion Workspace’ is a lifestyle focussed, digital print project based on the fashion studio and aimed towards those interested in fashion. My aim was to use a colour palette that would relax the user and help organise and ease pressure in times of stress.

London Life | The Official Move

Image
Over my past few internships in London, I've posted a series of 'London Life' blog posts.. so it seems fitting to resume with the series, now that I've moved back (long-term!!)


It's been nearly a month since you guys have heard from me (apologies), but I swear I have been super busy! Currently in my sixth week working for ROKSANDA and living in London and I'm absolutely loving it...











With everything happening so fast, in terms of getting offered the job and moving, I didn't really have an option, other than to dive in head first and make the most of it. I arrived in London on Friday, the 31st of March, moved into my new flat on the 1st of April and started working on Monday the 3rd. I've been so fortunate that I ended up living with two amazing girls, both so sweet and welcoming and have truly made the transition so much easier. Similarly, I'm so grateful for the incredible team that I get to work with every day at ROKSANDA, every single person has …

Paris & London | A Month of Madness

The last you guys heard, I was in London for Fashion Week, well oh how things have changed...


PARIS SHOWROOM

Following London, I was at home for a week, before flying to Paris on the 28th of February for the ROKSANDA AW17 Sales week. I arrived in on the Tuesday night, just in time to finish out Pancake Tuesday with Katie and I had the next day to chill before starting the week in the showroom from the 2nd-10th of March.

It was a great (albeit hectic) week, doing anything from teas and coffees, to dressing the models, merchandising and greeting clients. Half way through the week in the showroom (6th of March to be precise), I had a follow up chat with Carmela the CEO, re: the interview I had in the ROKSANDA Head Office, back in February when I was in London *drum Roll please* and I got offered the job as Office Manager at ROKSANDA in London. To say that I was elated, would be an understatement, it didn't feel real, the thought of a permanent paid position in a high-end womenswear …

15 Ways to Ready Your Wardrobe for Spring

Image
So I've always been interested in the idea of doing a styling advice post and as Spring is truly underway, I decided why not do a post on how to transition your Winter wardrobe to Spring. With inspiration fromBonobos' exclusive Spring Summer range, I couldn't resist.
Here are my top tips for transitioning your wardrobe from Winter to Spring:
1. Lose The Black

First things first, you've got to ditch the darker winter tones and brighten up your wardrobe. Say farewell to the thick wooly jumpers and bring out some light cotton shirts paired with some light pastel toned trousers/shorts. If the summer weather hasn't hit in, wherever you are, add a light bomber jacket or casual zip-up hoodie, just nothing too heavy.

2. Ditch The Boots

Another easy step to take from Winter to Spring, is with your shoes. Ditch the heavy shoes, like your Timberlands, Chelsea boots and Doc Martens and switch to your lighter summer options, like boat shoes, espradrilles, Birkenstocks or class…
