This lack of posting is completely unacceptable but hugely unavoidable when you're a fashion student. I have been so busy over the last few weeks that I have had barely no time to sleep, let alone write posts. After working for Acne at LFW it was straight back into a million and one things at uni and working at Starbucks. As I type I have 3 projects that are due within the next 2 weeks, so as you imagine everything is a bit crazy! I thought i'd shed further light on one of the projects I am working on so you can see exactly what my course involves.
We are currently undertaking a live marketing project which has got us working with a bag designer called Larissa Hadjio. After weeks of brainstorming and presentations, we are to shoot a film for her S/S 12 collection on Thursday. Once the film has been shot, we will edit down to the final piece, create a lookbook, press release and redsign her website. As much as I am very excited to get on with shooting the film, there is still a lot to do before Thursday and there is no rest involved in this!
The collection we are working with is a very minimal set of bags, based on geometric patterns, diamonds and city architecture. All of the handbags are made from nappa leather and suede and come in a range of neutral colours. Here are a few photohgraphs I took of the collection while we were at the designer's studio and more will come when shoot day comes around. In the meantime, check the designer out at www.larissahadjio.com
