Attention internet! In the name of charitable giving (and getting out the house), on the 27th of April my two housemates and I will endeavour to swim 5 kilometers in the national Marie Curie Swimathon! Pain will be endured, pool water inhaled, and according to the event rules, random people may or may not touch our feet. This is a mammoth undertaking by all accounts. Here’s where you come in. If you’re looking to perform a good deed and have a pound or two that you just cant work out what to do with, you can follow the link below to sponsor us (and therefore Marie Curie Cancer Care) in our colossal task. In exchange for you kindness you will receive a ‘warm fuzzy glow’ akin to hugging a new-born puppy or experiencing a mild bout of heartburn. Thank you in advance for doing the right thing xx

Reblogged from the CITIZENS of FASHION:
Vogue China april 2013 issue :
Jaquelyn Jablonski , Lina Zhang - models
David Slijper - photography
Tina Chai - stylingThese photos are gorgeous. Even though I like the concept of making, as soon as you say…
Experimenting with liquid latex and mould making around my hand and shells. I thought I would be more interested in the shape and structure, but I instantly became drawn to the marks of my skin that were left behind. I’m now looking into traces we leave behind, translating them into marks, and creating ‘second skins’…
I love these hazy colours and simple landscapes - the photos capture so much beauty just by focusing on a tiny part of the horizon
Exploring ideas to do with identity and the human body. Layering images of leaves, flowers and other natural forms on old family photographs introduces the notion of form, shape and structure being altered.
I did some bubble paintings to experiment with mark making and edited some… I like the idea of not being in complete control.
Elvira ‘T Hart is a recent fashion graduate whose latest collection puts 2D sketches to 3D garments. It is such a beautiful concept - seeing the creative process displayed on the finished garment.
“A lot of details contained within the first sketches are lost during the process of designing and executing clothing. By literally creating clothing patterns from the lines of sketches or sketching the patterns of clothing and cutting this out by laser, new shapes or suggestions of shapes are created. The clothing takes characteristics from the sketches: outlying lines, lines that trail off into nowhere and empty or unfinished areas. An image is reduced to lines, plans and areas which do not have to be fully formed or finished in order to portray their ultimate meaning:it stimulates the imagination.”
