due to hand ins and general stress, the blog has suffered a bit of neglecting! BAD TIMES!
This year, 4th year fashion students have been paired up with a helper and mine in the fantastic Sarah Findlay! When talking to a few of the students I was torn between who I was going to choose...and right at the very end Sarah made her way over to me and changed my life!
She's a fantastically creative person and after a chat this week, I really think we are going to be a great team!
Collection 1 and 2 Hand In
Well, it has been a stressful period of the 1st semester graduate year! A few weeks ago we had to hand in all work for the collection...DONE!
On to the toiling process - pictures to come!
We are making magazines this semester for trend 1 and for this we were to make a cd to fit in with the whole theme/emotion of your collection. Due to the morbid and sinister theme in which my collection has been based on, I chose songs that I felt conveyed a mood, but weren't too obvious! Here's what I have come up with!
1.Berlin - Lou Reed
This song is really stunning. I went to see Lou Reed a few years ago and this song I feel really conjured up quite an eerie feel, the melody the piano plays being key for this!
2. Strangle Up My Mind - The Underground Youth
I only discovered this band a few weeks ago (where have I been?!) and in terms of songs for fashion films, I felt it almost sucked you in.
2. People Are Strange - The Doors
I love the doors.
3. The End - The Doors
Literal I know, but again, great mood and emotion.
4. Open Up And Bleed - Iggy Pop
5. Venus In Furs - The Velvet Underground
Almost my all time favourite song. Violin/guitar is just fantastic, I really love the almost sinister feel to this, I think It'd be great for the fashion film/fashion show
6. Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin
I love the crescendo in this song, really takes over you. The songs I have chosen are linked to the time period of the case so I think this really fits in well
7. Very Friendly - Throbbing Gristle
Woah! LITERAL! I love the beginning of the song, I would probably use the sound to fit in to the fashion film or a mix for a show if I was to be picked. The song is pretty horrific though...so I wouldn't be using it in full. For anyone who doesn't know about the moors murders, this is probably a good way of finding out!
Have a good Weekend :)
