DAVID DOWNTON



AGES AGO I WENT TO THE V&A TO SEE THE GOLDEN AGE OF COUTURE EXHIBITION. WHILST I WAS THERE I PICKED UP THE POSTER FOR THE EXHIBITION BECAUSE I LOVED THE FASHION ILLUSTRATION ON IT. THE POSTER IS NOW ON MY BEDROOM WALL, AND I STILL REALLY LOVE THE IMAGE. IT IS BY THE FASHION ILLUSTRATOR DAVID DOWNTON WHO HAS WORKS WITH FAMOUS MODELS SUCH AS LILY COLE (SHOWN ABOVE) AND ALSO ERIN O'CONNOR. I REALLY LIKE HIS USE OF MEDIA AND COLOURS TO CREATE SUCH BEAUTIFUL IMAGES.

A CLASSIC!

WHO DOESN'T LOVE SHOES! IN PARTICULAR, WHO DOESN'T LOVE CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN SHOES! WELL ONE THINGS FOR SURE I DO. THEY ARE SUCH A CLASSIC FASHION STAPLE, I CAN'T WAIT TO OWN MY OWN PAIR ONE DAY. TOTALLY OVER PRICED YET TOTALLY FABULOUS!

NINE

video

YESTERDAY I WATCHED THE FILM NINE. IT TELLS THE STORY OF AN ITALIAN FILM DIRECTOR WHO IS STRUGGLING TO WRITE HIS NEW FILM AND THE WOMAN IN HIS LIFE. IT TOOK SOME TIME TO GET INTO IT BUT OVER ALL I QUITE LIKED IT. I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO WATCH AGAIN NOW I HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT. ABOVE IS THE TRAILER. I REALLY LOVED THE MUSIC AND OUTFITS IN THIS FILM, SUCH EUROPEAN CHIC! I WOULD LOVE TO DO A PHOTOSHOOT AT SOME POINT INSPIRED BY THIS FILM.

FASHION156



ANOTHER ONLINE FASHION MAGAZINE I HAVE COME ACROSS RECENTLY IS FASHION158. THESE IMAGES ARE BOTH TAKEN FROM TWO OF THEIR STORIES. I REALLY LOVE THE AIRY, SLIGHTLY MAGICAL FEEL OF THEM. THIS WEBSITE HAS SOME GOOD STUFF ON IT, HOWEVER WHEN READING ONE OF THEIR BEAUTY ARTICLES I CAME ACROSS THE LINE... "LETS FACE IT; GLITTER'S FOR KID'S" I WAS QUITE SHOCKED AND HORRIFIED BY THIS STATEMENT. I LOVE GLITTER. I'M LIKE A MAGPIE, IF IT SPARKLES THEN 9 OUT OF 10 TIMES I LOVE IT. I THINK THIS IS INHERITED, AND IN THE WORDS OF MY GRANDMA "YOU'VE GOTTA HAVE A BIT OF SPARKLE!" GLITTER AND SEQUINS MAKE WHAT COULD BE SO DULL THAT BIT SPECIAL, AND HOW CAN ANYONE SAY THAT THAT IS ONLY FOR KID'S?! TO CHECK OUT THIS MAGAZINE GO TO...http://www.fashion156.com/index.php?issue=25

ICONIQUE MAGAZINE

RECENTLY I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT A LOT OF ONLINE FASHION PUBLICATIONS. THIS IMAGE IS TAKEN FROM ICONIQUE MAGAZINE. THE WEBSITE IS REALLY NICE WITH FASHION EDITORIALS FROM VARIOUS PHOTOGRAPHERS AND STYLISTS AS WELL AS RUNWAY NEWS, A BEAUTY SECTION AND MORE. THE IMAGE SHOWN HERE IS TAKEN FROM THE STORY DAUPHINE BY ERIC WHITE. I REALLY LOVE CLOSE UP BEAUTY SHOTS LIKE THIS ONE. I THINK THE MAKE-UP AND HAIR AND THE GENERAL FEEL THAT THE COLOURS GIVE ARE REALLY NICE. I THINK THIS WEBSITE IS WORTH A QUICK BROWS... http://www.iconique.com/flash/

STILL LIFE IN THE SNOW**


THESE ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS I PRODUCED FOR A RECENT STILL LIFE PROJECT. MY INSPIRATION CAME FROM THE AUTUMN/WINTER COLLECTIONS, IN PARTICULAR THE DOLCE & GABBANA COLLECTION WHICH HAD A 70s SKI RESORT THEME. WE HAD TO USE A JIGSAW PUZZLE WITHIN OUR IMAGES SOMEHOW. I DID PLAN TO MAKE THE PUZZLE I BOUGHT AND USE IT AS A BACKGROUND BUT 1000 DIFFERENT SHADES OF BLUE, GREEN AND WHITE PIECES PROVED WAY TOO HARD TO DO! I WANTED TO USE THE NATURAL ELEMENTS FOUND IN 70s JEWELLERY SUCH AS WOOD, ALONG SIDE NATURAL OBJECTS THAT YOU WOULD FIND IN A SKI ENVIRONMENT. I ALSO USED THE 70s CRAFT MOVEMENT FOR INSPIRATION AND MADE MY OWN POMPOMS. I THINK MY OVERALL IMAGES LOOK GOOD AND I FEEL HAPPY WITH HOW THEY TURNED OUT.
