Psynopsis Styling Ideas for Central St Martins Styling Course


The styling course is moving towards its finale – which comes with a photo shoot styled by us, the students. Somehow our group managed to brainstorm itself into 'vintage bakery' (I fear I've got to take the blame because when asked what inspires me all I could think of was my newly developed bread baking habit); and now I'm stuck with vague ideas and too few asseccoires (maybe I can make some necklaces from papermaché?) to create volume and whackiness. Wonder if all of this makes any sense at all…

To answer your question how I'm liking the course... I'm pretty underwhelmed. But there are 2 more classes to go and then I'll take a deep breath and share with you my wonderful experiences and deep thoughts about the pro and cons of styling classes… Muah!

a new post - soooo good! i was already wondering if you had quit your blog quietly.

so, you're quite "underwhelmed" by your course? hm. but your draped outfits have a wonderfully japanese edge, the photography is beautiful, and I absolutely love your tights in the last pic! now i'm really curious to hear everything about the styling course!

You style comes from within, you can tell for the wonderful way you put pieces together, and the make sence.
I want to know everything about your course, Sabine.
Have a grand weekend.

That must be a pretty interesting course. Sounds like the kind of thing I'd both love and loathe.. since style is so personal and I'd hate to be critiqued on it, but on the other hand it's obviously useful for a career move..

drollgirl said...

underwhelmed, huh? well i hope it turns out to be a positive experience overall! it better be!

and love your looks. you are so creative and adventurous with your looks! you are fab!

and hope you have a nice weekend!

I love what you have done, especially in the first 3 pics ;). I have the feeling you might like an independent designer from Argentina who combines the Japanese culture and hip hop in her designs. If you're curious, you can check Antinomia's earliest collections here:

The oldesnt albums are the coolest.

Have a fun weekend! ;)

Hmmm... you are underwhelmed? That is so interesting. I do love those obi sashes. Gorgeous!

Dancing Branflake said...

Ps... yes I am still coming to England. I will be there next week and I am mildly freaking out.

INTRO TO MY LIFE said...

I couldn't put it any better than what Sacramento said.

Fourth Daughter said...

I can imagine you're underwhelmed.. shouldn't you be TEACHING the course rather than TAKING it??
Vintage bakery... aprons? Long skirts? Neckerchiefs? Kind of challenging theme, I agree...

Mikko Tyllinen said...

Fantastic dresses! very beautiful!

Harriet said...

Wow, I love the pictures so far - vintage bakery sounds like an amazing concept!

I definitely would love to hear your thoughts on the class as when you first mentioned it I thought it sounded just like something I would love to do, but it would be good to see how you feel after you've finished it.

I love seeing your progress with this course. The print/fabric mixing is lovely. My favourites to do, love your looks here. :)

Ashley said...

I like the looks you created with the obi-esque belts. What do you use for the sash? Just a big hunk of fabric? Clearly, I'm in the dark about many fashion-related things...

I'd like to see some papermaché necklaces. I didn't even know one could do that. Like I say...I'm in the dark!

Mat said...

bit disappointing about the course, but as we always say, things can only get better

Vix said...

You are so creative and amazing. I wouldn't know where to start. I adore the combination of textures. xxx

vint junky said...

Adore the obi's and i think you've got the vintage bakery thing down to a T!
Really disappointing about the course sabine, but i'm thinking you perhaps don't have much to learn. Your styling is always fantastic. You've got such an eye for it ;)

Kavery said...

I got a Japanese vibe from these. Not sure if that fits in with 'Vintage Bakery' but I'd love to wear any of these :)

Zarna said...

sorry you're underwhelmed by the course! i still think the photos look great!

Haute World said...

Love the second look, but all of these show how great layering and draping can be (I just really like the mix of patterns in the second pic). Was the splattered models stuff you posted part of the vintage baking idea? Honestly, the only thing I can think of, is those old-fashioned bonnets and lots of flour (I'm very unoriginal).

I can't imagine how a styling course would work. You do have to share that with me at some point. Considering how styling is one of those things you can't really learn and is so subjective, I'd be interested to know what their approach is.

Fashionistable said...

You are already a good stylist. Maybe the course hasnt been challenging enough for you. Great shots as always Sabine. Xxxxx

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I think it just comes naturally to you. Not surprised you're underwhelmed. What can anyone teach you??? :)

Sleekit said...

Some great styling going on in your shots, maybe you need a course to take you to the next level

So inspiring and beautiful. The layers are so interesting and playful yet really chic.
The course sounds really interesting. I'll bet you'll miss it once you've finished?

Cindy Whitehead said...

Love the look in these shots - layered, bandage, Japanese feel (you woudl like Christina Kim's line Dosa!) Can;t wait to hear all your thoughts on the styling course!

ediot said...

oh i like your way of styling , and the soft colors you have in your photos, really beautiful. Unfortunately i kinda just suck big time at french.. i never got the opportunity to learn it in school(only german/english) so i tried to learn by listening a few weeks before heading to paris.. since i have a bad memory - just a few things stuck. like bojour, bonsoir, bonne nuit and other polite words/sentences. Must try to learn it soon.
i think your course sounds very exciting, can't wait to hear more. good luck on the next two classes now

PinkBow said...

i love the obi styling, i'm intrigued to hear what your final thoughts will be!

polka dot said...

I love these photos and your sense of styling is so gorgeous, Sabine. Like others have said - that could be one of the reasons you're feeling underwhelmed. You're too modest to say it but I get the sense that you could be teaching the course - and that it's hard not to think 'why am I paying and travelling and not learning something new?'

That's just my guess. But as Sacramento has put so well, it comes from within.
