this is Neurotica

As you may or may not know, I am currently on an internship with an amazing independant fashion label called Neurotica. They specialise in original illustration, print and textiles that explore the contrast between the sweet, the sinister and the beauty in the everyday.
Each item is hand printed in London and the designs for Spring/Summer 2010 have been inspired by insects and flora and fauna.

On the 9th September it was a real FASHION EMERGENCY (9/9/09) at WAR! Magazine's extra fabulous fashion show at the Double Club, Angel Tube, London, showcasing the preview of the Spring/Summer 2010 Neurotica collection.
The prints feature vines, honeycomb, bees, butterflies, butterfly wings and flowers. 

It was an amazing day and evening with lots of free bubbly and the show was a definite success. Check out the photos of the models and see Neurotica's beautiful clothing at:

Ma petite sirène

I love films like Walt Disney's the Little Mermaid and the oysters from Alice in Wonderland.
Ma petite sirène, her hair is flowing and entangled with seaweed and shells.

I like to combine nature and humanity, a girl who's hair transforms into an Octopus's tentacles.

Lovely Kitty

After my little seaside break away from the city I feel much refreshed...

...I was surprised to stumble upon a shop called Ever After in the sweet little seaside village of Swanage, Dorset, full of goodies! To my sheer delight (which I could not hide to everyone else in the shop), lots and lots of Sanrio!!

I also discovered a fabulous treasure trove of Tarina Tarantino jewellery including the brand new Wizard of Oz themed collection.
Originally the images were illustrated (not sure if this was limited edition) and now the photographic images are used from the film.

I have yet to find the pennies to buy a piece...

*Sigh* One day...

Other delights from the seaside :)
