That Paramore Concert...

Saturday, 18 December 2010

The one where me and Charlotte went to that Paramore Concert in November...
As soon as I heard Paramore were playing in London for extra dates, I had to see them! I'm such a huge fan. I actually found out about them on the...twilight soundtrack embarassingly, haha. But this led to find out what an actual great band they are.
It was a really great live show, even though I got annoyed with the live guests. I just wanted Paramore to come on! They eventually did after B.O.B performed Airplanes. Hayley was really A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I got so excited when she turned up, with pink hair! It was definitely not disappointing at all!
I'd definitely see them again. They'd be worth every penny :)
Here are some pictures. My stupid digital camera could not zoom in further than 3 zoom, argh.
I think it'd be quite cool to be a concert photographer, haha :)

This is when the crowd started to build up:
The Paramore t-shirt we brought. Check out those patterns! Officially my favourite tee :)

Hayley finally turned pink hair! Whilst performing with B.O.B's Airplanes, the crowd went crazy :)

I have these obsession with Polaroids.

I liked capturing what was on the screens:

Re-modernise Paisley?

Saturday, 11 December 2010

I've actually finished my first project in Print last month, so I'm just uploading some old work :). 
We had to choose a particular theme in a classic print and try to re-modernise our chosen theme in contemporary fashion textiles. Going to those three museums visits were meant to help me but I think the only one which really related to my project was the Horrockses Fashions Exhibition. I was torn between choosing floral and paisley as my main theme. But after talking with my tutor, I chose paisley in the end because its something different :)
With re-modernising paisley, I found...quite...a challenge! It's quite hard to re-modernise a classic print. I just sat there in my room, drawing different shapes and lines in my sketchbook.
So these are the designs I came up with in the end, first done by hand and then edited in Photoshop: 

Screen printing is a very messy job: 

Printed on silk chiffon:
What happened when I added an extra colour: 
This is when I printed too much and my design got transferred over to my tutor's cloth ^o^  He said I couldn't have the cloth but it can stay their forever :)

Some close-ups when I finished printing :) It was a long day.

What do you think? Good/Bad?
