Spring has very nearly arrived, and what better way to get spring-trend-ready than with a quick mani?
Models Own is my absolute favourite nail varnish brand, and their Speckled Eggs collection throws a little spin on the traditional spring shades. I only own one from this collection (so far), and it’s called ‘Dove’. The pretty pastel colour is perfect to entice you out of your winter sweats!
Mae’r gwanwyn bron a chyrraedd, a pa ffordd gwell i ddathlu ‘na gyda mani?
Fy hoff frand paent gewinedd i yw Models Own, a mae eu casgliad Speckled Eggs yn rhoi tro unigryw ar lliwiau traddodiadol y gwanwyn. Dim ond un o’r casgliad yma sydd gen i (hyd yn hyd!) a’i enw yw ‘Dove’. Mae’r lliw pastel prydferth yn siwr o godi unrhyw calon ar ol y gaeaf!
Since finishing her studies at Central Saint Martins, receiving an MA in Womenswear, Jacke JS Lee has showcased many collections at London Fashion Week. I always look forward to seeing her newest designs, and today was no exception.
Eagerly awaiting by my laptop with the live stream on full screen, I think back on how her past collections have served as inspiration for me. I love how she can only use a select colour palette time after time, yet deliver something new.
As the room fell dark and silent, the first model entered. With a pixie bowl hairstyle and the classic red lip, the first outfit of LFW did not disapoint.
A persistent feature in this collection was a draw-string effect, which I loved! Gorgeous pale pink fur also graced the catwalk, with the odd shocking pink feature on the dark, black garments.
This year, one of my modules required me to create a garment for a diverse model. Pictured is my sister and diverse model, Llinos.
It was pretty awkward designing a garment for Llinos. She has recently suffered from Scoliosis and has a very prominent curvature, so clothes lie quite skeewiff on her back. That’s why I decided to create a very loose-fitting top. The colours of the fabric had to be pretty vibrant, because Llinos has quite a vibrant personality! As for her hair, it was left as we found it due to a model tantrum in the dressing room.. but I think it worked great!
I took quite a while editing the photos, but finally settled on a 3D effect to bring out the bright colours of the viscose fabric. I had to leave the image above on a black and white filter as the seventies vibes coming from it were just too tempting and it went too well with the hair style, while also giving off a hint of innocence.
Ar gyfer un modiwl blyddyn yma, roedd rhaid i mi creu gwisg ar gyfer model ‘diverse’. Yn y lluniau, mae fy chwaer a model i, Llinos.
Roedd creu gwisg ar gyfer Llinos braidd yn anodd, gan ei bod hi wedi dioddef o Scoliosis yn ddiweddar felly mae ganddi gamedd mawr yn ei chefn sy’n gwneud i ddillad orwedd yn letchwith ar ei chefn. Dyma pan wnes i benderfynnu creu top eithaf llac. Roedd rhaid i liwiau’r defnydd fodyn lachar iawn, er mwyn efelychu ei phersonoliaeth! O ran gwallt, doedd dim modd gwneud dim oherwydd stranc yn yr ystafell wisgo.. Ond dwi’n meddwl ei fod yn gweithio’n eitha’ da!
Treuliais dyddia’ yn golygu’r lluniau, ond yn y diwedd wnes i aros gyda effaith 3D er mwyn rhoi pwyslais ar lliwiau’r defnydd.
