Sketch Street Tweed

So yet again it's been a long time..I've had a wonderful summer, with visits to Holland and Edinburgh seeing friends and trying to keep up with uni projects. I've just entered one of the Street sketch campaigns, to design a tweed jacket and would really appreciate anyone who would vote for my designs!
Here are the links:
Thank you in advance!!

Bath Graduate Fashion Show

So this year's Bath Spa Graduate Fashion show will be taking place on the 20th of June at the Forum in Bath.  Tickets are only £6 and can be brought online from:fashionshow.artbathspa.com/ Don't miss out!


So a lot has been happening since I last posted on here.  I had my first experience of an internship interview, an experience that could only be described as interesting-with "interesting" being the word to use when you never want to repeat the situation ever again.  My main mistake-wearing shoes 2 sizes too small for me and almost crushing a fellow candidate with me and my many bags of fabric.  Anyway, I have definitely learnt from the experience...

So my prints have kind of taken over a lot of my spare time.  I've been working on them as often as possible and have finally put myself on society6 with a few of my prints. There are many more to come! So this is where you can find me:society6.com/keziahnewlove

Holi Tribes Print

I've been working on some prints for a trend project, probably should be concentrating on the actual clothing designs, instead of the fabrics, but clearly I can't let it go for now...

Scary face much!?

I managed to actually draw a face!? Miraculous!! I'm surprisingly starting to enjoy this whole illustrating lark..even if my first attempt looks quite terrifying, not at all my usual style but I guess that was the point...

Illustrating-Finding inspiration.

Last week I got given an illustration project, to work on over the next few weeks. As soon as I saw the brief with the words '20 illustrations' I was filled with complete dread.  I have some amazing illustrators as friends and my inability is pretty obvious in comparison.  However instead of giving up I may as well put everything I have into it and Pinterest has absolutely come to my rescue with an inspiring variety of illustrations, so I thought I would share a few that I've FOUND...

Fashion156 debate-Are Fashion Design degrees worth the paper they are printed on?

It's unbelievable to me that it's been a good 2 months since I last posted. What with getting back to uni after Christmas for a creative pattern cutting project, a trip to Paris, delving into trend forecasting and attempting to fit a life in there, it's been a busy 2 months.
This is a quick post before I get to what I've been doing, but I wanted to post this link to an article on fashion156's daily blog by Alexander Antoniou who is soon to be a fashion design graduate.
It's a great venting article, that is really interesting and definitely worth a read.
Whether you agree with it or not it definitely addresses a problem that seems to be more and more significant.  At the end of the day I think it's completely how you choose your university course. It certainly made me thankful to be in Bath, pushed more and more and focused towards industry expectations.  No course is going to be perfect and it would be a huge task to control fashion design courses by a governing body, but maybe one day it will happen.  I certainly think that this problem could become less prominent with a rise in tuition fees making course choice extremely important. However it definitely is up to the individual to find out everything they can about where they are applying.
Regarding Alexander Antoniou's points about Art Foundation courses, I do agree to some extent that colleges need to be brought up to what is expected at university.  I definitely wasn't prepared for my first term here, it was extremely tough and daunting and I spent most days wishing I could go home! But I'm glad I stuck it out, and I'm partly glad it was so hard, because although I didn't have much of a life and was unbelievably stressed, I am no longer in shell shock. I know what working levels could be expected of me in my future and more importantly I'm starting to really enjoy it.

So here it is, certainly a topic that should be taken notice of:Fashion156 Alexander Antoniou article
