my life right now

i don't think there has ever been a time when i had more to say about fashion but the work load at school is terrifying. i guess a bit of sleep deprivation never killed anyone but maaan i wish i had more time for myself.

i got into the design team for the bunka festival fashion show in the fall so for a few months i'm going to be drawing designs non stop. i am no artist and ive never had the chance to draw seriously so this is gonna be tough.. my faces tend to look chubby and swollen?

i'll upload my final drawings for the show once theyre done (if they ever get done...)

this is what my desk looks like right now
(i swear i didnt deliberately mess it up, i work on like 7 different drawings at a time so it always looks like this).
my sweing machine

this corner of my room used to look like this

now it looks like this

fabric all over the place, ironing table sitting right next to the bed......such a mess

random drawings sitting on my desk at the moment

these are the sort of colors I've been into... white, soft creams, beige-y yellows

i am making a shirt in cream and i think i will make my next pair of pants in soft yellow cotton with this tree printed all over.


i love my tall karen walker straw hat.
wearing with handmade blouse and bless pants

ive been interested in work wear lately. ive been looking at photos of the incredible ceramics artist Lucie Rie, she wore these comfy looking white blouses and pants while she worked, she looked so lovely.

lucierie what a beautiful photo.

our library has a nice collection of books.. from the few that i have now, ive been particularly loving this photo of argentinian cotton field workers

and this photo of the french japanese painter fujita in his studiohe was so stylish...wish i could work in an undershirt and tabi socks while rocking a bowl cut with hoop earrings.

reality is that my hair looks like a birds nest and i am wearing a sad old esprit tshirt with elephant print boxers.
