cut it out.

An entry for Design*Sponge's 'Design an original alphabet' competition. I found time out of a relentless project/dissertation timetable to do this during a 4 hour car journey with cutting matt and scalpel. As you can see I've called it 'Leafography' which is a really clever play on the term typography. I have a major obsession with autumn leaves and have to constantly restrain myself from not jumping into piles of them at the age of 21. Will I ever get bored of autumn coming every year, embarrassing the trees and making them blush? I don't think so.

Backstage Brighton

After spending the summer refining the cover design for Backstage Brighton, a book from publishing company 'Queen Spark Publishing', it was finally printed and launched on Tuesday 5th October. Waterstones will be presenting it at the end of this month and there will be a window display and everything!

100 Days of Active Resistance

Over the summer Vivienne Westwood released an open brief to send in a photograph/slogan/piece of artwork which supported her campaign of active resistance. A different submission will be chosen each day and at the end of the project will be exhibited. I entered a piece which focused on diminishing culture, and it was chosen for day number 9!

So...if we were to invest a little more into the 'Fashion-as-Health' metaphor, (which is relevant because everything this summer has been surgery related - have you seen the Stella McCartney cape from her AW10 Collection? And did you know that your prescription will take 2-3 days?) then you could say that fashion is experiencing a much needed detox. It seems really, since the photographic pixelated prints of Autumn/Winter 09 and the drawn out horror of completely unnecessary sandals, that we have been undergoing a bit of a fashion breakdown. Basically, Spring Summer'10 had an overdose and sympathetic designers and buyers have sent her packing to an exclusive 'retreat' where she, Grace Jones and possibly 'H' from Steps will reflect on bad habits whilst drinking white tea over muslin tablecloths.

Anyway, the important thing is that the detox is underway. To most people, this means a time of discipline after a period of over-indulgence. You cut out carbs, drink a lot of nettle tea and eat copious amounts of spinach. The fashion equivalent follows the same principle. Strip back to things that are good for you. Perfect tailoring, classic archive pieces that have been tried, tested and applauded, fabric that speaks for itself and items that don't need 200 studs and a zip on each shoulder to look designed.
