Warrior Launch

Ok, so the canapes, fizz and cocktail dresses was probably an overshoot in terms of the launch of the Warrior dress, so, we’ll just go with some new photos and a short blog.     This stunning oversized jersey, off or on-shoulder slogan sweater dress can be yours for a mere £80 with an additional […]

The design dilemma

I am currently researching the potential for sale of a limited run of warrior jumpers. This will be a test of my limited business skills, hopefully provide some brand development, and also be a market test for my products. I’m hoping that the popularity of this design makes it the perfect place to start this […]

Realising the Warrior

  OK, so I fancy myself as a sustainable designer. I genuinely want to make a positive contribution to fashion, not the usual consumerist crap, but designs which have a positive impact on the wearer and the world. ‘Aim big’ they said!   Contrary to popular belief clothes are not made by elves overnight if […]

The Jersey Apron

  So the point of my entire design project was to develop gender neutral clothing, but also to engineer something which could be worn in a variety of ways, and as each piece is fully reversible, however you wear the garment there are always two colour options.     The jersey apron was perhaps the […]

The protest collection part 2

So, there I was on a journey of gender stereotypes, and looking for a way to empower those that serve, myself included.   I became somewhat fascinated by aprons. I know this sounds rather dull, but, I loved the way that the apron is considered outside of gender, and something we wear to protect ourselves […]

The Protest Collection

So I dragged you along for the first few weeks of my last project, and then abandoned ship to dedicate myself entirely to a severe bout of Deadline-itis (symptoms include, and not limited to: abandonment of mum duties, wearing the same outfit for 4 days, wearing wool in 25 degree heat hiding my granny roots, […]

The Come Back

I would apologise for abandoning my blog for the past few months, but, you know, as I consider myself a bit of a Diva, I think nothing works better for a career than a spot of time in rehab and public avoidance, to keep your audience wanting for more.   I have been sunning myself […]

The Inheritage Collection

So this was a project I produced earlier this year:   Inheritage – the inherited heritage which promotes the entitlement of one or few to power over many.     I’m not a big fan of the monarchy. I don’t so much dislike the little old lady that waves graciously from her carriage and wears […]

Big Yourself

I have the most incredible and diverse selection of friends, some begged, some stolen, some bonded through foreign adventures, some through a pretentious need for intellectual stimulation, some with joint interests, some with utterly random world views. I’m proud of the haphazard selection of buddies in my friends list, the go-to list of thinkers, that […]

Stereotypes Part 2

So I’ve decided that you will join me for the ride that is my creative process. Moving forward from last week’s break the stereotype, I was jubilant. So many people were living outside of the box, and in all my ‘kick ass bitch’ smugness I quickly elevated my friends (by this I mean mostly myself) […]
