I'm finally home from university and I've been keeping myself busy practicing my garment construction and catching up on some reading. I'm really thankful that my dad has access to the university library, I'm finally able to get to a lot of the academic fashion titles the district library doesn't carry.
Central Saint Martens recently had their BA Graduate show, and I'm absolutely smitten with the designs of knitwear student Cassandra Verity Green's collection. The silhouettes are delightful and I'm in dire need of whatever material she used to make the giant fluffy bits. I especially appreciate the ultra-delicate knit blouse that's adorned with pony beads— I have a weakness for fashion that nods at girly artsy-craftsy culture. It reminds me of the make-your-own-barette kits I'd get for my birthday when I was a child! Green clearly has an excellent grasp of texture; you just wanna touch her clothes. You just wanna bury your face in it. Forever.

Not pictured here, but she also made a few backpacks that were semi-sphere goldfish bowls— cruel, in my opinion, but very aesthetically cool. I imagine a good spirited model walk would shake up those poor fish quite a bit. Fun to look at, though.
