I was born and raised in Spain with Chinese parents. Having grown up between two completely different cultures is what motivates me to articulate  an exploration of my own hybrid cultural background through fashion photography.

Second generation Italian with Bangladeshi origins. Loves to explore her heritage through garment construction and textiles. Aiming to create sustainable and ethical fashion for her future collections.

Concept: This Papaya wrap dress is a proposal collaboration with the Jewellery brand Tatty Devine. After extensive research and an interview with this brand, I found out that they are trying to expand across Europe and Asia.

I felt inspired by the fruits jewellery that Tatty Devine offers and I thought of my little tropical garden in back home. Since the company is quite humorous I took this idea literally and designed a collection where every piece represents a tropical fruit.

The Papaya dress is made from organic raw silk on the outside. The lining is made from cotton and the wooden beads are made ethically by hand.

BA (Hons) Fashion Jewellery

 

I am Gin, currently studying fashion jewellery at LCF. In my jewellery design, I like to try different materials and study more possibilities of materials. Secondly, I like to use the combination of traditional metalworking technology and modern production technology (such as 3d printing). All of these will support my inspiration. 

 

Concept 1. Inspired by ancient European jewellery, and combined with modern 3d printing technology to produce more modern jewellery. 

 

2. With the development of the society, the environmental pollution becomes more and more serious, but people seem to be indifferent to this state, still immersed in their own identity as the ruler of the world. In the future, the only things people can use will be rubbish. Even the crown will be made of rubbish. Therefore, I combine the jewellery elements of the Chinese royal family and choose to use waste plastic to melt and reshape.

The initial inspiration comes from the designer’s prints and materials of the pants. It gives me a feeling of soldiers with its military green. I came up with the concept called ‘why nobody fights’. Everyone has a different reason to fight for different contexts. This is an opened question. For the styling, I used broken elements on the sweatshirt, bundled chains on the vest and gloves to emphasis a sense of rebel. The pants were originally straight cut, I tied them up above the knees with strings, that was to break the original gentleness. The model’s hair was rolled up over her head with less quantity on each side which could imagine with mohawk punk style. 

The hair and make-up aimed to create a female warrior with a strong and bold makeup, kept in brown and red colours.

Jo Fetto, alias Giordano Fetto, is a photographer based in London. 

Since moving to the UK at the age of 17, Jo has always tried to combine his interest in telling stories through a documentary approach with the exploration of a raw and unconventional sense of beauty and aesthetic. However, the main focus of his photography concerns his hurried research of a quiet space, through his lenses. 

Targeting tiny ethereal moments of intimacy, affection and eroticism, Jo Fetto's unconscious portraits nothing else than his identity in all his sides; from his sexuality to his teen age, underling this everlasting sense of melancholy.

Collection Concept: 

Designed as part of  an industry  collaboration with Urban Outfitters, they  proposed a festival collection titled ‘UFO’, an abbreviation for unidentified flying object as well as Urban Outfitters Festival. The inspiration for the collection stems from the  science fiction movie ‘Valerian and the city of a thousand planets’ and it’s futuristic space cinematography.    An abstract space print was created with freestyle lines that capture the expressiveness of graffiti art. It was important that the designs were very functional, and introduces the design feature of a water bladder to enhance the experience of festival goers. It was incorporated into the  jacket and trouser pockets with fastenings to facilitate the tubes.  Targeting urban festival goers age 18-25, UFO also has many utilitarian elements- multiple pockets, water resistant textiles and reflective panels.

Patricija:

A voyeuristic lens on a girl who is comfortable in her own skin and with the nature, whose private and most intimate moments occur in the space she finds herself lost in nature. Sometimes she is aware of the onlookers, others she can only feel the breeze around her and the scents of nature. She’s totally relaxed and at peace. No fear of being judged, or worry of being sexualised, though she exudes sensuality in the ennui. She is cheerful.

Melissa:

4 am, coming back from the club which was simultaneously mundane and exhilarating. The alcohol is wearing off but the effects of the night are plastered like a cheeky grin to her face. She can’t remember where her friends ran off to, but she knows she needs to get food and get home, even though the night beckons her to stay out just a little longer. She gets a takeout from the local chips and kebab shop, and the fun continues.

I am currently in my second year at LCF. I have interned at Wonderland, House of Holland and Xu Zhi, gaining invaluable industry experience. I hope to set up my own accessories brand in the future after completing a masters at UAL.

The inspiration of the collection Neon Nights is inspired by Plymouth my hometown. Plymouth has a very vibrant neon nightlife. The collection is based on this nightlife culture, where inspiration has been taken from music and lights in nightclubs to takeaway culture after a heavy night out. Inspiration has also been taken from the 80s fashion and night culture. A happy meal box inspires the final design. As a designer I am very interested in sustainability. The handles of the bag are made from recycled plastic bottles which have been melted down and moulded into a handle.

MA Fashion Photography

I like to think of my models as characters in their own movie that I create around them, which stems from my study in cinematography and my passion for film making.  For me, every face fits a certain aesthetic and I’m usually in search for constant newness in my work. It’s hard to find a Johnny Depp type of model nowadays, one that encompasses a vibe, role and look, and if you do meet someone like that, keep them as your muse, for sure. That’s my work mantra.

I also use photography as a form of art to consume my attraction towards someone. I am drawn to their looks, vibe and attitude. From strong superficial attractions comes an outlet for expressions and art to please our thirst. I feel art has an appreciation for beauty that stops us from falling in a trap of fake lust. It’s essential to keep ourselves grounded and know the difference between artistic and sexual attraction.

Having a strong admiration for performance-wear, my garments focus on function, construction and performance with a contemporary  aesthetic twist.

  • Garment One: Is inspired by military-wear, specifically paratroopers, where the look consists of an earthy colour palette, hardware and storage, located under the pocket flap, both in which serves a purpose. 

 

  • Garment Two: Working on a live brief with Rapha, this jacket is made for city cyclists - The construction of the carbon-filter mask replaces the collar to target the reduction of fumes and other toxic chemicals produced by a congested city environment. Visibility and Rapha’s signature colour pink had also been considered in the making of this jacket.

The garments are from 2 seperate collections. The red top was from a flower collection I made, where I wanted to represent femininity and womanhood through flowers and decided to create the "Rose Top" which I think perfectly mirrors the nature of women: beautiful and has  its powerful thorns that are often underestimated. It was designed as a part of a summer collection for the designer Lulu Guinness.

The lilac ruffle tulle wide leg trousers along with the buckle vest with the neon zipper and buckle hoodie  were a part of a festival collection for Urban Outfitters. For this collection I focused on music festivals and for the 3 seperate UO customers I decided to create 3 seperate mini collections inspired by 3 different styles of music / genres : punk , grime and glam rock. The vest is  part of the grime inspired collection and the trousers are from the glam rock world.

Harness bag (1): This bag was inspired by the concept “wellness”. Discovering the symptoms and reactions to anxiety in an anxious mind set, this design was specifically made for the feeling of security during unpredictable moments. 

 

Pink flame bag (2): Inspired by the 90’s hip hop and glamour era. I used   seductive fabrics to demonstrate a relation to the spaghetti slip dresses. Bold and purposely designed to be distinctive with the 90’s rope chain influence for the hardware. Combining this background with the neon trend and the Prada flame heels was how the bag was analysed during the design development to the finished product.

This editorial shooting was inspired by Alice in Wonderland, and we aimed to explore the rebellious nature of the story by combining our designers’ work. 

The main inspiration was Alice from the book “Alice in the Wonderland”. The designers wanted the pictures for them portfolio which would not look similar to the old ones. So we decided to go crazy and represent our vision of Alice, rebellious, cute warrior

The hair and make-up concept is inspired by porcelain dolls and the book: Alice in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll. I wanted a create a look that contrasted with the styling.
