Psynopsis Central St Martins Mannequins
No outfit pics, but wrapping pics because… yeap, my Fashion Styling course has started; and phew, I'm really feeling the heat. Machine knitting was all about learning a technique, and then letting your phantasy loose. But with Aimée you're thrown into the deep end. First of all forget anything you think you know about styling (and especially personal style. Ugh!) – Trousers are not trousers, shirts not shirts – it's colours, materials, textures. So far, so good. But the homework… Putting together portfolios for magazine fashion shoots including locations, photographers, hair and make-up artists… I don't know any of this stuff!! But hey, wanna-learn-willing-to-suffer (and not blog because I have to do research), and I'm learning LOTS. Also, the create-a-type-in-1-minute tasks - like a geisha or a vivienne westwood gown - are really fun… Now, any idea which attempt is what?

So much fun! Well, I'd say the first one is Vivienne and the second is the geisha inspired outfit ;).

Have fun learning!

Hugs!

Miki.

You're so right, Miki. The VW wasn't expansive, bold enough, but I just blame the lack of clothes to put on the manequin.

Kazuko said...

aaaah, that sound like fun! and so interesting. they change the way you're looking at clothing, don't they?

love the two draping examples. and i'm already looking forward to your next "wrap"-up, haha

Oh how wonderful sabine. What an amazing amazing course! And right up your street.
Okay, Vivienne Westwood top, that's it to a T!. And the wonderful geisha below with the regal looking colours flowing layers. I LOVE this. Gah, this is were I miss living somewhere a little more sophisticated than a weeny Irish village.
Y'know, I shall be expecting updates...no pressure ;)

Looks pretty full on- reminds me of Project Runway somehow.

Such a creative process, Sabine!
Rei kawakubo better watch out!

northwest is best said...

Oooh, exciting! I was speaking to a stylist yesterday, to be honest it didn't sound as glamourous as I'd hoped. She sometimes has to buy things on her credit card for shoots and keep her fingers crossed she'll be able to return them.

sacramento said...

You are living a dream. Enjoy every second of it, and report back. Loving every pic Sabine.
Besos.

Susie said...

These are beautiful! I didn't know you were taking a fashion styling course--that's so cool!

Vintage Vixen said...

I absolutely love those creations. It sounds rather challenging but I know with your artist's eye you can pull it off. xxx

the nyanzi report said...

I love your attitude of always willing to learn something new.

Ashley said...

Very, very interesting. I'm not one to think on what looks together...I usually just pick a few things out and I'm out the door, and I think, most of the time, they work. So this would be SO different and new for me!

I guessed right, too, with the Vivienne Westwood being no. 1. Yey.

Zarna said...

sounds like a lot of work, but still a lot of fun!

Fashionistable said...

Sound bloody marvelous. Westwood then geisha. Great projects. A whole new way of thinking love it. If you need photography help just holler I am happy to help if you need it. Out of he country now until end of June though, soaking up the sun. So anytime after that. Thank you for your lovely comment. Xxxx

Clare said...

Oh these are amazing! I think you are good at absolutely everything.

Mat said...

geisha = green?

Filipa said...

Sabine, while the knitting was cool, this is what I would really really really want to know!! What an amazing course and opportunity! I hope you learn it all and then tell us through the blog haa, for those of us living faar away from London :P I'm liking your work already!

Roz said...

Sounds so exciting and challenging and creative. I'm highly envious!

drollgirl said...

i am thinking this is going to be fab for you!

and it might possibly change your life...in a great way!

hope you enjoy it, and that you have a fab weekend!

Veshoevius said...

Ohh I'm so jealous! My guess is first pic Westwood, 2nd pic geisha. I hope you'll let us know all about it! If you want to know about hair and make-up people based in London who would help you out on shoots for free as they are getting their portfolios started shoot me an email as I have a good contact for you. And surely you don't need a photographer!!

Cindy Whitehead said...

Pearl Westwood said...

Oh your course sounds so much fun! You really got the VW feel in the first outfit and the textures and colours in the second are perfect for geisha. Wish I was doing the course too x

WeShop said...

This course sounds brilliant - you're going to learn so much. xx

Dancing Branflake said...

How did I miss this post? This is so awesome! I cannot wait for all your creative juices to flow unrestrained.

Haute World said...

Definitely 1) VW and 2) Geisha. Glad you're having fun with this. How many courses will you be doing for CSM - or is this part of a bigger program? Let me know if you're ever in town again. Would be great to catch up or do a bit of sale window shopping ;-)
