Parcha Exhibition II

Seems like the last four months have been swallowed up rapidly by time. Between classes and full time work I also committed myself to take part in the Parcha Exhibition 2 with the Parcha team. 

The turn out at the rehearsal was not the greatest but I had a great time meeting those present. Great day for networking as I met more inspiring minds.

Below are some snapshots from the rehearsal followed by the poster and event schedule. I shall post the pictures of the events after tomorrow.

Time off..

Ever since classes ended I have found it difficult to find the motivation to really get into any form of creativeness between long hours at work. July was packed with various celebrations including a fancy dress party which was fairly interesting and August was hectic as I flew back home to nepal for three weeks.

Overall my hours this summer were mostly spent at work as I am trying to save up £££ for my final major project.

Lately I've been inspired and touched by truly unexpected subjects. Below are two..  

Deserts. Vanilla cheesecake with caramelised strawberries. Very haute couture or what? I need to learn to bake such intricate edible deserts!!

There was an exhibition on at The Great Hall in Winchester by the Mouth and Foot painters. They are painters who basically paint using their mouth or foot due to some form of disability. I feel lucky to have witnessed an artist at work on the day. It was overwhelming and it made me realise nothing is impossible when you are dedicated to something love!

My parents threw me a lovely 21st birthday party a few weeks ago where most of my friends and relatives were present. It was a hectic night but my father managed to take some lovely pictures so thanks dad!

One of many bouquets of pink roses from the evening placed next to the cake made by my lovely sisters.

Making a wish at midnight with all my loved ones...
Up in the air... was beautiful to watch five lanterns one after the other...
Feeling the sisterly love with my two cousins after the cake cutting i.e. everyone smeared cake all over my face. The jumpsuit I wore was from Zara, very minimal alongside a pair of very minimal black suede heels with a gold ankle clasp from River Island.

Past month has been very busy hence the lack of posts! Cannot believe it is now august, however I am looking forward to the coming few weeks as I will be flying to the other side of the world to visit the rest of my family in Nepal. Should be a nice break from long hour shifts and various projects.

Hope you are enjoying your summer too x

Carmen Kass: Spring Eternal from Asa Mader on

Last time I experienced a holographic image live was at the Design Museum in London at the Christian Louboutin exhibition.

Found this video fascinating as it mixes the thought of fashion and science which is another ongoing trend for the coming years.

Hope it ticks of your thoughts too.

Full description on

Enjoy x

Lately I've been working everyday at various places hence the lack of post! I came across this designer via a trend report on WGSN. 

These images are the most influential from her collections since 09. The leather and metal mix gives her design a futuristic glam. Creates a strong yet vulnerable women in other words 21st century romance and luxury enjoy!

WSA 2012 Show: Backstage

Picture heavy post of my favourite pieces and accessories seen backstage on Monday night at the Truman Brewery.

Lexi again in Lucy Cox

Lucy Cox's designs

Another look from Xiaoge Xiu's collection 

Footwear that caught my eye: Topshop platforms from Amy Whitelaw's collection. I am considering on purchasing a pair for this summer as it was very comfortable when I tired it on. Only factor that is stopping me is the thought of the pony the material was sourced from.
Amanda Thompson's outfit. Very Vivienne Westwood. Particularly adore the shrivelled leather gloves in the head wear as they look nothing like gloves.

Very Versace, high street grab from Zara worn by a stunning model from Philippines pictured above.

One of the make up artists form L'Oreal was wearing the MARNI for H&M acrylic flower necklace.

There were very little menswear collections this year as you can see from the running order board in the previous post. This one was my favourite by Shana Lao. I wish more men were confident enough to wear skirts apart from kilts.

WSA 2012 Show: Make up

This year I did not get as excited as the 2011 show for many reasons. Mostly due to the fact I didn't work closely with the third years this time around. However I did go along to help out with the shows in Winchester and London. The images below are from the London Truman Brewery Show that took place on Monday 28th May. 


various shades

I feel the need to invest in some good quality brushes as my ones are all deteriorating.

More pictures to follow in another post as I have to leave for work now. Classes are over but I still seem to have no time at all. Hope you all enjoy the lovely weather today as I will be stuck inside painting and decorating interiors.

Austere II

Past months have been painful. Having to juggle a few part time jobs alongside attending university full time is not easy especially towards deadlines. Finally the second year is over but now I'm left unsure of how I feel.

Next few months, I aim not to waste as the value of time is unmeasurable. Back in the beginning of semester one I chose Max as my muse for a menswear project. We met briefly for a photo shoot towards the end of the project and I handed him a little something as a gratitude.

A few days ago he surprised me with a web link via a short text.

Here it is:

Lex Pott

This morning I realised why I am not the greatest with words. Whilst deep in discussion with a dear friend it came to attention that I can never explain my thoughts and concepts clearly with words as it is often always to complex.

The main reason > > >I'm a 'visual' person.  

These images are all works of Lex Pott via WGSN Trend Report for A/W12-13. The simple overlapping shapes create a geometric pattern which is enhanced by clever used of colour. Inspiration for my current project which is finally rolling at a good pace after such a slow start. Will do my best to post at least once a week but with such a tight schedule it is proving to be extremely difficult!!

Textures: Cha Jong-Rye

Lately I've moved on from Instragram to Pinterest which is a virtual mood board that you can pin images and videos on. Pretty handy when on the move, if you come across something you like you can just pin it and voila!

These images below are of Cha Jong-Rye. The hard wood fools the eye as the surface texture looks ever so soft, almost as if its a ruched piece of silk.

MARNI Furniture

Apologies for the absence as for the past few weeks I've been visiting a blurry land of my own. Easter break was supposed to help me catch up on everything I've been falling back on but didn't quite happen.

Reality check, now classes have started again I'm beginning to worry about the new trendsetting project we have been assigned. This final project should be a breath of fresh air as its a collaboration with weave and print students.

Whilst researching, came across the MARNI furniture collection that was displayed at the Milan Furniture Fair. It consisted of (limited edition) 80 chairs, 10 deckchairs, 10 tables which were all handmade. A successful collaboration with the charity Columbian Craftsmen unlike the one with H&M in my personal opinion.  

Love how the Marni have put simplicity and colour together on these pieces.

Absence of the Mind

Delirium was the main focus on my project that just ended but actually never seems to end. Only have another so many illustrations to do and finish off the garment. The video above is a short animation which I have tried to portray the disturbance of purity in the mind by a physical conflict.

Week before week, I assume my body just gave up and crashed last Friday form pressure of uni work and my job. Quite ironic that I was bed ridden for the week of my Easter break. Feeling fresher now and really enjoying the sunshine. Hope you all are well too.

I've been wearing skirts a lot lately because of the found comfort of jersey.

Finally these sandals have been liberated from the shoe rack. The pastels were from last season Kurt Geiger whereas the black pair are form current spring season at H&M.
