Catch-up on the last few weeks, and my finished final collection! :)

I'm baaaack! :) After many weeks of scheduled blog posts and guest blog posts from some lovely ladies, I'm finally back on my own blog and ready to get back into blogging on a weekly/every other day occurecnce! I've missed it so much, but I've had some of the busiest/worst/best few months of my life.


I've loved and hated working with printed fabrics this term. I created this print and had it digitally printed onto silk satin to make some linings for my garments and also a shirt for my collection. It's not the cheapest fabric, and having to line up the prints to get them matching is not easy, but I love the way it looks! This has pretty much been my view for the past few months - walking to and from uni. This and the inside of the studio or my bedroom.


I've really enjoyed working with delicate fabrics such as tulle, organza and lace this term. Even though they've been a right ball ache to get right, and they move out of place ALL THE TIME, I love how they look! I'm definitely gonna continue to make for myself after uni, I'm so excited to go fabric shopping and it being for me and not for my collection or uni work!


Some of the places I used the printed silk satin - in this unfinished shirt and in the lining of my shorter cape :)


A sneak peak of a photoshoot I did for my final collection. I will do a full blog post of the final images sometime soon, I'm so happy with how they came out! The photographer is amazing and the model was stunning :)


My little sister (pictured), my mum, my dad, my boyfriend and my best friend came up to visit me to see my end of year Final Collection show which was so lovely! Unfortunately it was two days before my final deadline so I couldn't really spend too much time with them as I had to go back home and get on with work! The two days later though, I got all my work completed, labelled and handed in!


Here is a sneak preview of my final collection from the show. I will also be doing a full blog post on the full collection and hopefully some more close-up photographs (I'm waiting to get some photos back from the photographers!)




Thanks for reading :)
So that's it now, uni is finally over and after Graduate Fashion Week it's the Summer!
Are you finishing university forever this term too?
Love Dani :)
