lola's circus is coming to town...

here are 2 images from the photo shoot of my graduate collection, the mood was circus folk and fantasy with a dark, dream-like twist....my influences were the vision and feeling of a record playing in an empty room, or harlequins that dance to no audience...

all the fun of the fair

some knit samples based on circus fun and frolics, and an unfinished peek at one of my final sweaters.
The fair has come to Bath this week! and unfortunately it is not what i was hoping for.... no bearded lady, no vintage clockwork rides or slow dancing mimes and clowns and not a ruffle or coconut in site..... boooooo!
so i made these to make myself feel better! maybe i'll have my own fair...... hmmmm

march 16th

One shot from a styling series looking at contortion and restraint in clothing and knit and the push and pull of fabrics.
This shoot lead on from an earlier one focusing on how many ways it is possible to wear a jumper...endless was the answer!

march 3rd "white lace and promises"

knitted ruffles! and knitted knickers, i made lace yarn using a found piece of white lace curtain and re knitted into a pair of knickers, i came across the text "white lace and promises" somewhere and wanted to knit something based on it...i'm going to take this idea further, i like the idea of contrasting white and purity and all the connotations that come with white lace.

and some more styling with samuel, my theme includes faded drama and slow theatrical movement....forgotten harlequins and melancholy mimes.
