Kodak Brownie 127 // Model 2

NEW addition to my growing camera collection.. This is a Kodak 'Brownie' 127, model 2, introduced in 1959! A simple bakelite camera for 127 film which features a simple meniscus lens and a curved film plane to compensate for the deficiencies of the lens. So looking forward to using this, and now the film has arrived I can't wait to start shooting with it! (apologies for the crap photos, my SLR has been playing up)
I'll be sure to upload the developments from this film, I'll keep you posted!

A few snapshots from my 'inflate to innovate' project research/skecthbook.



New term, new design project, new brief. This time we have been issued with a menswear project, something I am really looking forward to. To inspire us we decided to go cool hunting (taking photos of some of the better dressed guys in Huddersfield). Here are some of my initial shots, more photos to come. All photographs taken at The Citp and Dais Boutique in the Byram Arcade, Hudds.

I'd like to make Cool Hunting a regular feature on my blog so I will keep you posted..

Antoni & Alison // LFW

The design duo that is Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts, today, returned to London Fashion Week after leaving in 2005! The simplicity played out through the wispy shifts, enabling the eye to be drawn to the sequin, brocade, paper bag and fringe collage creations that adorned them.
From me, personally, the garments needed second-glancing as some of the shapes/textures deceive the eye. A truly inspiring collection.


SO excited to have my ticket for this coming WHP in Manchester!
