2012 Festival Season

2012 Festival Season

Wow what a summer!! Old friends, new friends, dancing, some more dancing, crazy antics, rain, mud, sun and lots of dressing up. What was the highlight you ask? Too many to mention.

I had been wanting to check out Secret Garden Party for a long time as I had heard so many good things about it over the last few years. I had a stall within The Secret Emporium which is an independent designers festival outlet at SGP. The weather however wasn’t on our side. We had constant rain and consequentially mud for pretty much everyday until Sunday. But hey! We had fun anyway. Lots of people still wanted to dress up despite the weather. What a cool festival. Definitely going again next year. Fingers crossed for a dry one.

Wilderness Festival in Cornbury Park- Oxfordshire. What a stunning location. Being able to go swimming in a clean lake at a festival is definitely a winner.

I had never been to the Isle of Wright so that was an adventure in itself even before getting to Bestival. Huge site with hills!  The sun was out all weekend too. Great line -up always helps.

Playgroup Festival got postponed to mid September this year. It’s small festival based in East Sussex beaming with creativity. No need to say a lot of fun was had by all…

I didn’t take a lot of photos (none from Wilderness!) which is a sign I was obviously having too much of a good time. Anyway, here is a few…

Made to Order Luxury Jacket and Hat.

Kim works for the sustainability team at the Council. She wanted me to make her a striking stage outfit. We decided on a blue-purple colour palette.  I think I got a little carried away with the beading. Hours and days later I stopped. She was very pleased with the outcome and had great comments from the crowd. Yay!

Leftover Threads Showcase.

After two months of hard work I managed to get a collection together for Brighton Fashion Week. I wanted to create a luxurious collection but also promote all body shapes.

So here we have all sizes from 6 to 18 strutting the catwalk.

I need a holiday now!

Sometimes I take on fun commissions too, like creating stage outfits for eclectic performers. Electronic producer and singer Fiona Soe Paing wanted a white dress that she could project her visuals onto whist on stage.

I used plastic piping to make the hoops and white lycra to create this piece.
