Here are a few design sketches that I am working on right now...
Of course I am a big fan of the finished and polished product but I also strongly believe that there is a stronger tale to tell in the concept sketch books from the beginning.

The first two pictures are a small collection (preliminary design sketches) that I will hopefully be producing in the near future.

The last 2 are pages (of many) from my recent sketch book to show how I work out my ideas/fabrics.
I always carry a sketch book with me wherever I go and they turn into a sort of fashion diary you could call it..... I write small notes of what I like or don't like or how I can improve etc....

I would love to get some feedback from you all!

I want to try and post my designs/sketches as well as outfit shots as I go along because they are both important to me and I hope that you like them too!! :)

Omg these are seriously stunning...

Great concept (feels to me like a a hybrid of 'utility-robot-luxe' if you have any idea of what i mean), and the identity and strength of the design is really strong and clear-cut! I like how you mixed sloppy and precise elements :)

I love your sketches- i think rough drawings are almost always more interesting that the finished product lol

Hope your samples are made:)

I'm really falling in love with your art, I love the style you work in and especially the scans of the collages in your sketch book!

i love your sketchbook style, actually reminds me of mine a little cause i use masking tape in mine too. ever since i was influenced by sabrina ward harrison (dont know if youve heard of that artist but she has a similar style)

its brilliant cos its like glue but looks so much better. xx
