gfsmith visited a few days ago with paper samples, never did i think it were possible to get so excited over paper…but we did. i personally orgasmed over their 'duplex' range; a liquorice sandwich of neon pink wedged between two crisp high-quality whites. ...not surp
rising they supply the likes of pentagram, gucci group, burberry and mulberry who are attracted by its british heritage and bespoke ordering. i already noted my reluctance to throw away the packaging from my recent makeup purchases at topshop; also clients of gfsmith…
HELLO AGAIN!! ~ i've somehow ended up back on here whilst attempting to write my dissertation…funny that. on the otherhand stella mccartney's 'resort12' collection is rather lovely, as is label camilla and marc's floral print suit from their aw12 lookbook… a post was required!
an overdue post, i've been interning at the very stylish, online womenswear company BENGTFASHION.com over the last month. highlights have included the shooting & launch of their AW11 collection, BENGT's 'smoke and mirrors' collaborative music video, and interviews with jewellery designers imogen belfield and kyle hopkins. we managed to catch a sneak preview of their SS12 collection - both of which look really exciting! undergraduate kyle has already been tipped off as one to look out for; his gold people ring comes top of my must-have list! check out the site/blog for more and follow them on facebook to keep updated! ...
was meaning to post this a while ago; richard phillips seeks to expose adult film performer - sasha grey's "expressive and psychological transformation into a cinematic actor" with this intriguing and seductively shot short film.
i found out about the recent scientific discovery that a fuller bladder aids decisiveness and vigilant thinking, which (naturally) led me to create a business advisory service in the form of a call centre where employees are forced to remain ‘fully hydrated’ (aka bursting) in a toilet free environment. i thought 'sphinct tank' would be a fitting company name - a play on 'think tank' -comic genius?…i think not - or sphinct not i should say haha, okay i'll stop now.
the video can be watched here, apologies it's a bit hard to understand…the vocab's a bit wordy for a 5am voiceover recording lol.
urgh!…annoyingly i just came across this lush online magazine, just managed to take a screen shot of this look i LOVE but my internet crashed and wont allow me to access the page again, so i can't remember which magazine i was looking at lol. neewoo love the hair, the lipstick and one day…ONE DAY - i will have the legs to rock those trousers :(
in relation to my ongoing research for self initiative 1 titled 'phantoms of the brain'…a recent breakthrough in treatment caught my attention during the news this morning. like the mirrored box used to treat phantom pain sufferers; it further suggests that pain is of virtual existence, or atleast visual feedback to the brain can override sensations of pain. the development came purely by chance as a lady suffering from arthritis happened to have a go on this straightforward optical illusion 'game' invented for school children by nottingham uni graduates. watch the full report here.
more from the project itself; i managed to find a prosthetic centre which amazingly is only 5 minutes down the road from here! freakishly lifelike - the artificial limbs border the real and have too been found to reduce pain for amputees. …(below) i tried to make the most out of the consultation room i was given to photograph them in.
also contacted just about every lost property office in the uk - asking them if any 'limbs' were handed in but i only managed to find an arm in the tfl headquarters…still, strange how someone can forget an arm.
i've gone all 80s frizz with this post. (above) photographed by katerina jebb. karen elson & a load of cats model steven meisel's 'graceful elegance' for vogue US august2008 …these images are just so clean and strong i could stare at them for hours. the cats are lush!
