At the moment i am crazy in love with Charlotte Olympia’s quirky designs, and her latest offering (pre-fall 2012) of designs inspired & influenced by Russian Matryoshka dolls are no different. I love alot of elements of Russian culture, so these are two pieces which have particularly caught my eye: Wonderful suede sandals with wooden heel & platform, floral print satin lining/mid-sole detail, and winking Matryoshka doll head featured on vamp of shoe. Also, an amazing wooden clutch bag with magnetic fastening, a Matryoshka doll featured at the top & a removable floral pouch in interior.
These pieces are beautifully crafted and would compliment even the plainest of outfits. Once again, i’m in love.
Well after lots of celebrations, I thought it was about time that I share with my followers on here what my final university grade is!! I was so happy when I received the letter saying that I got a BA of Arts First Class Honours in my Fashion Product And Promotion degree!! Totally over the moon :-) So now that is over and done with…whats next??!!… well I have two very exciting trips coming up over the next two months which I am saving for, and in-between that I will continue doing Freelance styling jobs. I will also continue designing and making accessories which will be made to order, I have afew really nice designs sketched up which I aim to get finished by the end of the week, these will be added to my other products. Photos will be put up on here and on Instagram which you can also follow me on cerese_pierre. Then of course you can order various styles etc. Exciting times ahead :-) Thanks for all the support and feedback you have all given me this year :-)
I’m really using accessories as a way of updating my wardrobe at the moment - As always I am loving statement gold jewellery, and my latest love - dickie bow ties…this one is from Topman. I am planning on making a soft leather dickie bow tie this week with stud embellishment….possibly out of nude coloured leather so that it fits in with the pastels trend which everyone seems to be wearing at the moment….team it with a nice white shirt, blazer, denim, and I’ll be all set :-) Also wearing Illamasqua medium pencil in “Debonair” shade. What are your thoughts on these looks?
I thought it fitting to write a post about my Final Major Project since that seems to be all I am spending my time working on at the moment! With just 5 weeks left of my final year at university, I am now in the process of getting my final work completed. This project combines my research/trend prediction skills with my design skills. I am creating a trend and then designing a collection from that trend- which like alot of my design work is a lingerie based collection, well more underwear as outerwear. My collection has a strong leather presence mixed back with soft jerseys, silk, and lace- a winning combo I’m hoping! There is also a selection of leather accessories to compliment the clothing pieces, which I am looking forward to being made…so I can wear them myself! I will also do an editorial with a model wearing my pieces. YES….. I do have a large workload at the moment!
