I'm back!

Hey everyone,

I hope you're all doing well. Oh, how I've missed you and this blog.

I have finally completed my degree and it feels so good to be free. My final exhibition went well; I received great feedback from the people who viewed it. It was such a challenging experience trying to get everything finished in time because I had some major setbacks along the way, but I made it through.
Thanks to everyone who offered their support and encouragement, I really appreciate it.

My major project was a lifestyle brand for girls around ages five to ten, based on different aspects of my country Barbados. It was comprised of products, packaging and advertising. My minor project, on the other hand, was a weekly style inspiration magazine and shopping guide for young women around mid-teens to 20s. Unfortunately, I can't show any pictures of my major project at this time because of copyright issues (sorry!) but I've posted some photos below of some of the outfits I styled from the magazine.

I tried to create an interesting and diverse set of outfits that looked natural; I didn't want the photos or the outfits to look too 'perfect' or forced. Tell me what you think!

In the time I've been gone, I feel like the fashion world has moved on and left me behind. I have had little to no time to check up on what's been happening but I will do my best to get back on track now.

What fashion trends/news are you excited about at the moment?

I like the outfit with the white girl with the cigarette in the hand. It looks very authentic.
My favorite fashion trend in this summer are the arabic trousers.They are very comfortable and look very "fresh".
Actually Iam starting to design my own clothes but also sell from other labels. Whats the trend in Barbados this summer?
peace&love palagua
