My First Stall

I set up my first stall on Sunday! As part of the Wanstead Art Trail, I was asked to set up a stall, I made a bit of cash and recieved some positive feedback from passers by, which is always nice. It was also nice to see which of my creations was most popular for future reference. Wanstead festival was on next door, so there was a good atmosphere, great turn out and lots to do! All in all, a good event and a good day!

Wanstead Art Trail

The wanstead Art Trail is now on. My work is displayed in the glass cabinets found in the foyer of Wanstead Library. In there you will find my two bingo players and two pages from my 'Junk Boy' book from my second year work. In addition to this tomorrow morning there will be stalls set up in Christ Church, where artists, including myself will be selling hand crafted goods. I'll be selling my leather purses, keyrings, oyster card holders, brooches, cards and more! So come on down and check it out!

Vogue Darling!

So Vogue's Fashion Night Out was on Wednesday night. I have been working on two different events for it via my internship at Fiona Leahy. First off Harvey Nichols, where a haberdashery counter was created and t-shirts were customised, with the help of four famous designers: Marcus Lupfer, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders and Marios Schwab! The event was a total success. Loads of people turned up to have one of a kind t-shirts made by big designers and there was champagne and cupcakes on tap! Yum!

Secondly, there was Louis Vuitton where we made a selection of props out of the September issue of Vogue, to be used in a photo booth set up especially in store. The props included Gaga-esque shoulder pads, a moustache, bunny ears, bows, a ruff and a mohawk. The props were even set up on mannequins in the windows and upon entering the store! As you can see, I got my picture taken in the booth, I loved it! It was amazing seeing other people interacting with the props too. It felt like all the hard work was worth it :) And ofcourse there were free cocktails going round and lots of stunning (and amazingly tall) people everywhere! I was definately one of the shortest ones in there. The atmosphere was amazing though and I spotted a few celebs, so all in all a great night!

I have been interning at Fiona Leahy's creative events company for a few weeks now, making paper accessories for Vogue's London Fashion Night out on Wednesday 8th September 2010. The paper accessories will be used inside a photo booth set up in the Louis Vuitton store. Check out the UK Vogue blog for a little taster!
