Versace for H & M

Love this collection, I need to get my hands on some of it :) 

Love how Versace have used their iconic vintage prints from the 90's in their collaboration with H and M. Versace prints inspire me a lot throughout my projects designing fashion prints and it's great that they are available to us all on the high street!

Third Year! My Bay


I am following on from my last project in second year and continuing with my 'Tropical Baroque' concept. I am aiming to create over the top prints for fashion inspired by vintage Versace prints, Matthew Williamson and silk scarf designs. I have visited many places over the summer such as Edinburgh zoo and Bowes museum to collect visual research to draw from! I will be mixing animal prints and structured baroque shapes and patterns and maybe try some beading! I'm really looking forward to getting back into the print rooms to experiment!

Pattern Textiles - Work Experience :)

I had such a good time during my work experience at Pattern and have learnt so many new skills that i will be able to apply to my own work. It was very inspirational to be in such a creative environment and be surrounded by such gorgeous prints and embellishments all day long and to see how they were made! I spent a lot of my time sewing together dress fronts as they were packing up all their samples ready to take to exhibit at Direction in New York. I really enjoyed my time there, all the designers were so nice and gave me a card and chocolates to say thank you!
Just a few places a visited whilst in London

Hallmark Final Boards

©HelenProudlock March2011

These are a couple of photo's of my final boards, cards, gift wraps and tags displayed in the corridor at college. I ended up really enjoying designing for gift and got some good feedback when presenting my work to the Hallmark ladies :)

Tuesday, 1 March 2011


I'm halfway through a project designing cards and gift wrap for Hallmark. I've been visiting flea markets and charity shops to find little trinkets etc. as my theme is Secret Garden so it's all quite cute and girly! I've also been drawing flowers, jewellery, vintage buttons and little birds.

Still think I'm sure its fashion I want to do but this is different :)
