Had a sewing spree last night, trying to define some new pieces for a autum winter mini collection, so here is one of my prototypes (dresses for myself made under the excuse that they are a prototype) rocking it with school socks, platforms and a gorgeous 60's leather jacket. How I adore these muted colours! What will be your autum look?!

Where is our subculture? What culturally defines our generation? What sets us apart? We have horribly mass produced clothing led by massive fashion houses with no concept of what real people can afford or want to wear. Where is our music? Bland chart successes that overtly manufacture to reach their maximum audience. What about political decisions made on behalf of us by the rich few who have had to live off such limited means. Are we going to sit down quietly and swallow this mundanity which is offered to us? What are we waiting for? You need permission? I'm giving you permission, what do you want to do? Make a film? Form a fashion label? Write a play? Start your own business? Band? Movement? What is it, what moves you? Yeah we all need to pay our rent and feed ourselves but bigger than that we need to satisfy ourselves by creating. Creating something for us, a sound, look, image, brand, whatever?! The time is now and we have the freedom. We have the power of the Internet and more knowledge available than ever before. You are not alone, the current economic climate is dissatisfying more and more of us. We are all the result of beatniks, hippies, punks and ravers. A hundred different subcultures have gone before us and we can encapulate and exploit every one of them for inspirational means. I want to hear from you, are you a musician, designer, photographer, writer, actor, choreographer, singer, artist, visionary? Let's join together and coin this movement, lets support, write about, be inspired by and collaborate. Together we have the means to do this. What's your latest idea? Need a creative forum? To meet more artists like yourself?
Email our company at firstname.lastname@example.org
We don't just want you to 'like' what we are doing on Facebook, we want to hear about you and your projects! Act and create NOW.

I'm basically missing some velvet flares and a floppy felt hat from my life right now. This is why this outfit happened. It's a channelling of Jimi Hendrix, if he was a female and alive today then he maybe would wear this kind off get up. Probs not a punky David Bowie t shirt if anything he would be digging Mick Ronson. Who knows maybe he did. Anyway I'm so on a 60's/70s stylistic train right now and it's so nice to acknowledge your direction and go with it, it will change drastically once again and it will just seem like a hazy clothed dream.

Look at this a blatant throw everything on in some mild late sixties manner. But I love it, I love this nightie like cheesecloth dress, this eighties felt hat, and mandarin style shirt. All great pieces, lush colours! Clothes should have humour, a massive sense of fun, be a pleasure to wear and a visual statement of what you are loving that day. If you focus on this then getting dressed can always be a complete sensory activity, not a chore. Go forward enjoy clothes!

Seriously what is it about long socks that provoke men of all ages to stare and shout abuse/praise out of there unattractive white vans. Can you not see I'm rocking a youthful floral 60's look here?! It's disgusting that people feel they can reduce you as a human into something which is their sick objective. Anyway I'm not going to let close minded-ness ruin my fun. Remember it's 'fuck the rules if you love it wear it'

Hello neon 1960's sailor! That's a thing right? As I refuse to wash my hair, pointless as I back combed it within an inch if its life and there is no point in washing that out strait away, hence some camp looks lately. Anyway the mixture of this 80's Laura Ashley sailor top and this 60's blazer is a bloody dream of a combination. And I'm always one for cheating a look I.e using something from a different era completely to create a certain vibe by mixing it with different items, make up, accessories. So exciting to see a item pulled together in a different way. And also I can't possibly afford all the different things I want but I can capture the idea of what I'm looking for.
