Hello! I’m in an excited mood at the moment but also a stressful one… I think its important to have a certain amount of stress in your life otherwise its all pretty mundane.
I’m back at uni and we already have so much work to do. I’m currently working on a 6 week project on street style in London. We have to choose an area of London that’s trendy and interesting, then go and photograph people there. I’m trying to visit Shoreditch this coming Wednesday but I think the weather might let me down. This rain is constant over here in England!
Here are some interesting concepts of different street styles and how its photographed.
Japanese street style
It’s become an interest to everyone, even people that don’t have a specific interest in fashion. The Japanese street style is so unique, and sort of surreal. Pat Lyttle’s book ‘Japanese street style’ is available on Amazon as a paperback.
Most people who surf fashion Blogs will have heard of this well known street style photographer. Scott Schuman’s work has also been featured in magazines like GQ and Italian Vogue, along with ad campaigns for DKNY, Gant etc. The way he captures people is really interesting and his collection of images are all so diverse there’s a style for everyone.
If your not already following them on tumblr or facebook then you definitely should do! I’m sure you are… So many well dressed people, so much clothing envy!
I also have a dissertation idea! So far, I want to do a fashion film inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’.
And I cannot wait for the BBC 2 film depicting the manipulative nature of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. Sienna Miller plays Tippi. I’m not sure when its on but it sounds so interesting. The film is said to suggest Hitchcock blackmailed her into having sex with him by threatening her career.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be updating the blog with progress on my projects shortly. As always any thoughts and comments are very welcome.
I recently bought these amazing platform wedges from Office for £25… bargain. I saw them a couple of days before I bought them, and decided against it because i’m actually not a huge heel person anyway and these are very high. But ever since I left the shop I couldn’t stop thinking about them, so this resulted in me running into to the shop before work the next day. I’m so glad I got them because they are so comfortable and make me so much taller and long legged (deceivingly).
Another fashion lust of mine ( but not so easy to get hold of) is something/anything from Christopher Kane’s 2011 resort line. The galaxy print is popular still and ebay is full of listings similar to it or actually from it. I have been desperately trawling ebay daily to find something I can actually afford, but they all end up going for way to much…. than I can afford. Here’s some galaxy print lusting for you…

I also need some new lipstick… what colour to get?

Flower photographs i’m using for my Vogue editorial, taken from my back garden and edited in photoshop.
I have to shoot my editorial for my Vogue project this Easter holiday and i’m currently trying to find a model and location for it. I know I want to do it based around the print trend (be it floral, paisley, animal, polka dot, there are so many at the moment) but It’s really important I find the right location in Bristol…
Here’s a new editorial for American Vogue, photographed by Tim Walker. This was an idea I had, using a printed background to clash with the printed outfits the model is wearing. This editorial was photographed at The Ritz in Paris which will be hard to replicate. However it isn’t about replicating it, I’m sure I can find something just as effective!
‘ In print’ photographed by Ben Toms for Dazed and Confused. Here is a great example of clashing bold print and colours. I don’t want to do it in a studio however. I think if the weather is going to be as sunny as it has been this Easter I should really make the most of it.
‘Fille Unigue’ Josh Ollins for Vogue Paris. Full print outfit and a not to complicated location, but it works really well.
… and here I like the carefully placed vase so it contrasts with the striped outfit. I think the key is to really think about how to make the print stand out and look effective. I want to focus on contrasting colours/CLASHING colours… pastels or brights? Or both?
So there are some of my idea’s for my editorial. Any comments would be much appreciated! Should be shooting within the next three weeks.
