Fifties Femmes


 
 
This semester at university I had to recreate Wonderland magazine with a 1950’s theme for the modern day. Together with my brilliant little team of fashion students I created a digital and printed copy of the publication styling, writing, editing directing and photographing all the content. Now that the project is finally over (phew!) I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite images we created during this project, featuring some fabulous fifties femmes. Let me know what you think!

Spring/Summer at Edinburgh Boutiques

 

This month there’s been some exciting new developments in Edinburgh’s thriving independent shopping scene. At the moment I’m loving Atticus Boutique and Elk & Wolf, brand new niche fashion and lifestyle stores in The Arches, and Kakao by K and Jane Davidson on Thistle Street. But my old favourites Covet and Godiva are on fire just now, with two fabulous events celebrating their respective Spring/Summer collections!

SDX Textiles

 

Last Thursday I launched a brand new textiles department at my work, the Scottish Design Exchange, supporting Scotland-based print designers for textiles and wallpapers. I am really excited to finally be able to add some of the country’s most talented textile designers to our community of local creatives. Huge thanks to Edinburgh musicians Jack Hinks and Sean Munro for kicking off the party with a brilliant acoustic set, and for everybody who came to celebrate with me!

London Fashion Week Festival

Many bloggers, myself included, have the tendency to sugarcoat less than perfect experiences with brands in an attempt to maintain a PR-friendly image. But I’m going to be totally honest with you about my day at London Fashion Week Festival 2017, the newly revamped and relocated London Fashion Weekend. It kinda sucked. 
(Stay with me, its not all doom and gloom…)
