3 Mood boards for Halloween
First off Halloween is my favorite time of the year, although Christmas is up at the top too! Halloween is all about dressing up, for me its about being creative and being someone different for the night. Also lots of glitter thrown in!
Mood board number one is a array of different decorations; mostly DIY for that Halloween party your gonna throw.
I am fascinated with Halloween costumes and when it comes to vintage Halloween and seeing when people used to dress like its just makes me giggle with happiness.
Last but not least, my Halloween costume. I’m going as the Virgin Mary. I’ve already started my dress and cape but most importantly I’ve to get started on my halo soon, Time is running out!
Hope everyone has a safe Halloween this year x
Went to London last week for 3 hours (don’t ask). Decided to pop into the V&A , luckily enough for me a fashion exhibition called ‘Club to Catwalk‘ was on. The exhibition explores how the creative relationship between catwalk and club wear helped reinvent fashion in the 80’s. Designers include Betty Jackson, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano.
Sorry for the poor quality of photo, I sneaked my iphone in.
It seems to be all about the skin head fashion at the moment, insert…. Doc Martins, Shaved head, tartan, Fred Perry and trouser braces.
I’ve seen a lot of kids walking around Dublin with his style and even bringing an influence of punk into the wardrobe. Autumn/Winter 13/14 preview sees the return of tartan on the runway with Designers such as Chanel while the New York Met Ball consisted of a punk theme with celebrities wearing a lot of spikes. I can’t wait for this trend to happen, I’ll been eyeing up a tartan kilt for a while now.
