Hey everyone, sorry for not posting yesterday; I’ve just started a seriiiious essay which is due in on Tuesday (eek!) silly me always leaving everything to the last minute. Anyway, because the essay is about fashion I thought I might let you have a little look at the essay plan. I like drawing things and using colour and spider diagrams to get my brain going.
As you can see I’ve chosen to write my essay on PRADA’s S/S collection :). I got the idea to use fashion illustration from the website http://www.gattobravo-mia.com (I’ve posted some of their illustrations here.
Hope you liked these as I was thinking of doing them as a regular thing. I need to build up my illustration anyway and I really enjoy it :).
Let me know what you think! Nuala xo
This season, Carmen Miranda inspired prints exploded on to the Catwalk (don’t know who Carmen Miranda is? I didn’t either until I typed her name into google images –http://tinyurl.com/43f5nt3 – ‘ohhh yeaaah that fruit-head lady!’)
Banana print was featured in PRADA’s 2011 spring/summer show (if you can’t tell already, I love PRADA.)
I came across a fashion illustration blog called www.gattobravo-miao.com, it’s so cute check it out. Here’s their interpretation of PRADA’s fruit prints:
Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer collection featured zesty citrus fruits.
Fruit print is now on the high-street (: – here’s a few I like.
Banana print T-shirt, £18.00 from ASOS.com and lemon print prom dress, £29.99 from NEW LOOK.
Banana print shorts, £12.00 from TOPSHOP.
Lemon ‘fruit post’ earrings (they also come in apple and strawberry!), £6.50, URBAN OUTFITTERS. Banana earrings, £6.00, TOPSHOP.
Hope you liked these tutti-frutti treats. Watch out for my next post!
Stripes were all over the catwalk this season – but not just your plain old breton stripe. This spring the classic pattern has got a re-vamp, and I love it!
