Interview

Something I wore recently to an interview for an Art Foundation course (my "in case I don't get into university" back-up plan).

I really love contrasting feminine pieces with an oversized blazer, it just always seems to work. My blazer was one of those completely lucky finds, I bought it for £10 at a vintage fair in Leeds and I just love it.


Dress - Topshop
Necklace - ASOS

An Introduction

My name's Alex. I'm 17, very nearly 18 and my obsession with fashion goes far beyond just a penchant for shopping.

I spend pretty much every minute of every day on fashion, from trawling the internet and shopping on the high street, to sewing, drawing, designing and styling fashion/textiles. I also love art, music, photography and everything in between. I just thrive on being creative and making things, while always working hard to be better at what I do.

At the moment, I'm at college doing A-levels in Fine Art, Textiles and Business but I'm hoping to go to Northumbria University in September to do my dream degree in Fashion Design. My goal is to show my work at Graduate Fashion Week in 4 years time, so watch this space :)
