spring nails – Models Own’s DOVE


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!

LFW – J JS Lee

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.

diversity project


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.
