Final images for my Fashion Photography Shoot


As I said in a previous post, I would put up the final images from my Fashion Photography Shoot and a bit later than expected but finally here they are.

For our project we did the photoshoot using dresses designed by second year fashion design students from Limerick College of Further Education. These were designed under the theme poetic biology which we have to carry through to the photoshoot.

Again the design I chose was the ‘Jellyfish Dress’. The dress was designed by Li hua and the dress design was inspired by fluorescent jellyfish. The full-length continuous loop knit detail interprets the floating nature of the jellyfish. It is also embellished by hand-woven sleeves and embroidered panelling.

Fashion Photography Shoot

Last week for our Photography module, we each had to organise our own Fashion Shoot. The dress I chose for it was the ‘Jellyfish Dress’. The dress was designed by Li hua a second year Fashion Design student of Limerick College of Further Education. The dress design was inspired by fluorescent jellyfish. The full-length continuous loop knit detail interprets the floating nature of the jellyfish. It is also embellished by hand-woven sleeves and embroidered panelling. The circle crochet piece on the arm represents the shape of the jellyfish while the back of the dress has loose string type pieces hanging off and these represent the tentacles.
 
Here is quick look at some of the pictures I took, My final 12 will be posted next week.

With a New Year Comes a New Colour



2013 is making us GREEN with envy. We are saying goodbye to last year’s Tangerine Tango and hello to this year’s emerald green. Pantone.com announced late last year that this would be the colour of the year.

"Lively. Radient. Lush.....A colour of Elagence & Beauty
and Enhance our sense of wellbeing, Balence and Harmony"
Gucci S/S 13

We will most defiantly see the high street laced with this colour as we move more into 2013. Emerald Green seen in Spring /Summer runway collections of Gucci, Burberry, Michael Kor's, Sportsmax, Kenzo. Even Vera Wang shows her love for this colour in her collection of dark green with gold trim dresses. This colour was rocking coats, dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, accessories, nails and we could even see a return of that green eyeliner. As far as celeb followings go, the duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is already a step ahead of us, she has been wearing Emerald hues for the past year and her most recent was the Mulberry silk Emerald dress which she wore to the opening of the Treasury Gallery in November. This makes me think did Pantone.com get there inspiration from Kate Middleton rather than the catwalks.
