For the last week I have been doing my placement for Uni. I am working for a fashion designer in Iceland called Jet Korine and it has been wonderful. She has a shop called Gloria on Laugavegur and it is so amazing. The work has been very exciting and I will continue working there for the next 6 weeks. Mostly I have been in the studio sewing but I also had the chance to work in the shop and observe the whole process. The clothing are all natural and sustainable. It is so wonderful to work with these amazing materials! The studio is very small but gorgeous! I have never worked in such inspiring work place! The people I am working for is so creative and inspiring, everyday I am learning something new. Here are some of my photos on Instagram (larainwonderland90)
I have a new project in Uni called Manifesto. The idea is to create a design philosophy/manifesto. This is a communication of my approach and ideas about fashion.
Honestly, I am not good with words so I have been struggling on how to present this Manifesto. I have my ideas of what I want it to be, but expressing it on paper is the problem.
I am much more into expressing myself with photos.
The Sealpelt from Vík Prjónadóttir. I must have it!
My T-Shirts are now available online. The Link below takes you to my shop.
I have finished four T-shirts designs so far, I have literally been sitting in front of my computer for two days. I do not have any talent in Photoshop what so ever so this has been a challenge. I am almost finished with four others so things are looking good, might be able to put all of them on www.spreadshirt.co.uk tomorrow.
