On Friday, my mum and I went on a trip to London. It was very busy, partly because it was the last day of London Fashion Week, but i didn't mind too much because the whole city was crammed to the brim of fabuously dressed people.
[How cute are these girls? But they must have been cold- I was in three jumpers and a coat when i went into London! Pictures: Facehunter]
I had half hoped to join these people, however failing to book tickets to the shows only ended in me pleading with the ticket man outside the barriers. Ah well, theres always next year.
So, feeling a little dissapointed, i stumbled across the V&A museum. I've been a couple of times to see the Kylie Exhibition with my friends, but have never been there alone. The couture exhibition i had heard about had recently closed, so i took the time to go to the fashion through the ages exhibition. It wasn't quite the London fashion week experiance i had been expecting to spend my day doing, but it was rather intresting. Anyways, i had to sketch some pictures for my Fashion Illustration project, so i took one of the collapsable stools [how handy are they?] and spend the day drawing.
Heres some of my work, please excuse the roughness of them [i didnt have a rubber] and the quality of the photos [my camera broke so i used my phone.]:
1954 Jean Desses, Paris
Womans Riding jacket 1750-60.
Just a few more pictures. The left it Karl Lagerfeld, Piano Dress, And the other was made of Bra's. HOW COOL? Very is the answer to that one!
Have a nice day everyone.
