London College of Fashion students team up with Salvation Army Trading Co to promote sustainable fashion

Finally some news ! The project I completed in June in collaboration with Salvation Army to promote Sustainable fashion has now been returned from Brimingham Clothing Show and was on display in their flagship store on Oxford Circus !

The aim of this collaboration was to show we can create a desirable garments out of donated clothing. I used three pairs of donated british army uniform trousers to create a biker jacket . Here are the results :

A Mention by hollywood.com for their Beyond the Row fashion news feature

So as you know, I have posted previously about my trip to Paris for my 'big' 22nd birthday .. and the amazing show's I got to see.  In a quick hurry on route to Nina Ricci I had some pictures taken,  which I was send a link to later on, but as my name was spelled incorrectly .. I never manage to claim them :( So it was a lovely surprise to have a friend of mine send me a link from Beyond the Row with their 'Cat out the Bag' fashion news section she found in Google whilst researching some imagery. ( thanks Natalie ! ).

Topolski opens in LONDON .. within the Vogue's illustrator first studio at Londons Southbank .

Topolski opens, a café by day and bar by night, situated in what was Feliks Topolski’s first studio within London’s Southbank. Expect a menu that hits home to the my Polish-born Expressionist’s homeland with zurek (sour rye and sausage broth) and borsch (beetroot and horseradish soup) set to become house specials. 

Design-duo Wayne and Jack Hemingway will be curating the live performances under these famous arches, which will feature the Vogue illustrator Topolski’s work on every wall.
