Inspiration: Colour

Image: Saif El Shafei
COLOUR INSPIRATION: This picture was taken a while ago by my photographer friend Saif El Shafei. I believe he took it somewhere in between the desert dunes of Qatar, while he was on yet another safari trip. I absolutely love the calmness of colour in this image and how it contrasts with the slightly electric teal, orange and blue. Beautiful colour inspiration, also the lines in the shot are very interesting.

Designer To Watch: Faissal El- Malak

He is young, but he is definitely going places! One to watch, Faissal El-Malak, a Palestinian, Canadian Fashion designer, graduated from Parisian school Atelier Chardon Savard. As soon as we met and he showed me his work, I instantly felt inspired by his contemporary approach to fashion. 
This highly talented young designer's first collection debuted at both the Festimode Casablanca Fashion Week in April 2010 and the Fashion Festival of Carthage in Tunis in June 2010.




"This collection was mainly inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A space odyssey. The confrontation of the primitive organic world with the spacial, metalic, rigid world is translated in the clothes by the earth tone colors and the non-color black and white palette. This confrontation is also found in the draping and the use of more or less opaque fabrics." Faissal El-Malak.

Faissal just launched a line of tights and leggings that are exclusively sold at S*uce Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Be sure to grab yourself a pair before they run out!

Inspiration: Video Art

I'm starting a whole new string of inspiration posts! Whether it be art, video, fashion or photography, I think they're all very much linked. So every now and then you'll see me share one of these :) Something I saw and felt inspired by, photos I've taken myself, films, work of artists, and everything that relates back to fashion in some way or another. :)
Anyhow, this morning I came across this incredible piece of work by Esteban Di├ícono called Let Yourself Feel. Its so entirely beautiful, everything from the colours to the music. Hope you guys love it as much as I do!

My 21st Birthday is only 5 DAYS AWAY! I know I can't believe it, although somehow I feel 5 years older! I boil water and i forget to make the actual cup of tea, I misplace my house keys for days, I lose phone/camera/ipod chargers all in the same week!! Im only turning 21 and I feel like I'm losing my head already! its a lovely thought really! 
Anyways, I'm designing and making my dress for my birthday! (currently under construction) Let me tell you It's been a long process considering all my stuff is back in London :( but with the help of some lovely people I was able to get everything I needed! I will definitely post pictures up once it's done, but for now here's a sneak peak!
