The Ballgowns Exhibition at the V&A

Wednesday, 31 July 2013

This is quite old from now! But the V&A had the Ballgowns exhibition that I went to last year. This exhibition highlighted British Glamour since 1950 for 60 years of stylish evening wear. There were beautiful embellished details, styles and exquisite silhouettes. There were gowns on display by Alexander McQueen, Bellville Sassoon, Roland Mouret and Zandra Rhodes. As well as young labels such as Holly Fulton, Erdem, Felicity Brown, Jonathan Saunders, Gareth Pugh and Christopher Kane. There was an absolutely stunning dress by Alexander McQueen, in which model Daphne Guinness wore to the Met Ball.

This photo went a bit blurry; was trying to take a pic as quickly as possible before getting caught again. I love the Walkers crisps packet bag! 

I really want to see that David Bowie exhibition next. Its extremely popular! Best selling exhibition at the V&A so far. 

The Minimalist

Sunday, 28 July 2013

I am really into the minimalist look/trend. I like the concept that 'less is more', with the negative spaces. I came aware of Brands like Acne Studios, Rag & Bone and Ceremony when seeing the items on Polyvore, I started to make sets of it and then that got me into this trend. I think its more of an on-going trend (I don't think it will ever go out of style). I like the whole clean, cut, with nice tailoring blazers and uniform-esque style. I read that the minimalism term is described as various forms of art and design, where the work is placed to expose the essence or identity of a object. It is a design or style that shows simplicity and only using a few elements to create an effortless effect on the design, whether it's in fashion, art or in architecture. Sometimes less is more. 



I like to pretend that everything's alright. Because when everybody else thinks you're fine, sometimes you forget for a while that you're not.

The Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts 2012

Saturday, 27 July 2013

Note to Self: I am going to start blogging more often.

There were a few exhibitions I visited during the summer last year that I forgotten to blog about (was incredibly busy). Can't believe its been a whole year since I went to a exhibition! So this is quite old, one of them I visited was the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts 2012. I went to see whether it had any relevance to my dissertation obviously didn't help much as I was in the early stages of Dissertation research, but it was really interesting to see all the inspiring art paintings, the sculptural building pieces and some fashion garment pieces etc. There were quite a few pieces that had a very interesting laminating effects on them too! Here are some of the pictures I took:

I thought this was a very interesting drawing of typography design.

A cute bird print!

Bold typography design prints. 

I think this was my favourite print in the collection. It has such a great attention to detail, such a beautiful drawing.
