Disobedient Bodies

As an ex fashion student I was pretty excited to see Jonathan Anderson's curated exhibition at The Hepworth, 'Disobedient Bodies'. (One of my projects at college was to create a piece of clothing with exaggerated forms to distort the body and emphasise different areas. It was fascinating to see some of my inspirations from that project with my own eyes, like the weird (but amazing) structures from Rei Kawakubo and pieces from Issey Miyakes' 'Pleats Please' collection. My 17 year old self would have liked this very much.)

I really really liked the screen printed pants from Richard Tuttle, and the whole felt collection by Comme des Garcons made me swoon! I love the 2D structures and the wacky colour choices, they remind me of something from a comic book.

Edinburgh sketchbook and photographs

Colour loving in the flat we stayed in

Hello! So... it's been a while since I last updated which bothers me a bit. Mostly because I haven't been feeling so great recently, and not having consistent blog posts up is just a reminder of that. But it's OK because there is one now!

Anyway, we came back from Edinburgh a while ago now but I still wanted to share my photos and sketchbook pages from our trip. We stayed in a really cool flat which had such an artsy ~bohemian~ feel to it I felt so sad when we had to leave! Jake had never visited before so it was really nice to explore the city with my sister (she studies animation there). We trekked up to Arthurs Seat to watch the sunrise, visited Marys milk bar for a yummy icecream shake, delved into loads of antique and vintage shops, stopped by a couple of art galleries, ventured to the Royal Botanic Garden, strolled through Princes Street Gardens and visited The Museum of Childhood. Busy but so fun... and such a beautiful city too! I hope you enjoy my pictures and sketches.
