Just came across this jewellery website! I can’t believe I haven’t seen it before. Solanger Azagury-Partridge started it when she set up the company in 1990. All the jewellery on it is amazing, and so original! I definitely know what i will be asking for Christmas! Iv taken some images of my favourite pieces off the website. Email this website to your boyfriends girls, you cant go wrong!

The high heels have definitely gone to new heights! I love all the lace up high heels, which are all over the high street shops. I think that statement shoes like these can make a simple outfit into something great. They will not only get your legs in shape, but also make shorter people look taller! What more could you want?
Some people say that it has gone too far and have taken high to hazardous... At what point do high heels become 'too' high???

Banksy- ‘King of the Spray Can’
The anonymous Banksy is one of my favourite artists. He has never shown his face because what he does is illegal. Most of his work is graffiti on walls of building, all over the world. He makes stencils of his work so it is quicker to get it onto walls. A group of people work for him to help stencil his work around cities. His work is mainly based around politics, ethics and culture.
I went to an exhibition of his, which was held in Bristol museum. He got permission off the museum to showcase his work and graffiti and add thing to various other artists work. Here are some images i took from the exhibition.
Drunken angel!Cigarette break!
On this very detailed piece of art work he has added water and a boat off the edge as if the water is flowing out of it.
Here is various stalactites and banksy has comically put a pink dildo disguised within them!

Colin is one of the best fashion commentators of our time. He is the founder of Fashion fringe (organisation to help your talented young designers), has been the chief fashion writer for the Sunday times and is the author of various fashion related books. Through all his years in the industry he has great and respected points of view. One of the reasons he is so good at his job is because he knows a lot about the making and designing part of fashion, as well as the business part.
Collin defiantly had the whole lecture theatres attention, giving a very entreating view on the industry and various designers. He spoke about a number of things throughout the lecture, giving his opinions and thoughts.
In the 20th century Colin's favourite designers that truly made a difference were Madeleine Vionnet, Cristobal Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Armani. He believes that the 50’s is the last period in which the age of fashion could really produce and take in elegance, and was the last period of ‘true’ couture.
Chanel was a good designer, but more of a great activator. She showed that women were not only equal, but also better than men! This created the women’s movement and had effected/changed a lot of things within the 20’s.
In his opinion the current top three designers are Galliano, Prada and Marc Jacobs. Galliano is his favourite designer, never running short of new inspirational ideas! When it comes to Prada he believes that she’s a great designer but part of the reason she is able to come up with new crazy ideas is because she can be brave and strong with your thoughts when you have the money to back it up with.
He says currently there is no strong lead for fashion designers to take on because the generation of fashion is now a lot younger, like there has been in the past. There is also no strong demand for any certain type of clothing. A lot of fashion is no longer made for what is best for fashion, but instead are made more with money in mind.
Colin thinks there defiantly need to be some new great menswear designers! The fact that men are very ‘one way’ in thinking, most males are not experimental, so they want fashion to be easy and risk less, therefore some new designers need to give this to them.
Thanks you Colin McDowell for your openly frank speech on the fashion word.

I studied photography as an optional module in my first year of uni. The theme for this assignment was ‘The seven deadly sins’. To link all of them together I used the theme of advertisement, so each image is demonstrating a sin while making it into a false advertisement of a product/service, which is related to the sin.
