I've created a really insightful survey to collect data for my customer profiling research - it's based around views on sustainability in fashion and media. Fingers crossed I get some great results! You (as in my two followers, rock on) can find it here and help me out:

Looking through past work to find appropriate images for a re-work of my portfolio, I've discovered I have very few textile related pieces. Although I'm headed towards a technique based textile vortex (which is what this year is spiralling towards), fashion pieces are all I seem to have done in the past. And they are surprisingly missing a textural element. It's been a bit of a shock to realise that the past years have been spent focusing mainly on pieces and garments that I can't really utilise to their full potential when finding my place in the textile industry. Don't get me wrong, these pieces are full of my heart and soul through their creation, it just means that the coming weeks need to be spent developing a more heavily textile based portfolio. Fun times!

Here are a couple of fashion based images that live in my portfolio at the moment.

Look out for the release of Stephanie Goerlach's new collection tomorrow at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 'The Innovators' collaborative runway. Goerlach graduated from Ultimo Tafe in 2011 and has been gaining recognition for her graduate collection, in particular this amazing hand-knitted jumper.

The rest of Goerlach's graduate collection is full of imaginative pieces with detailed prints and catch-your-eye type colours, how can you not love it? Goerlach's blog hints at the aesthetic for the rest of her collection, it's just so fun!

Wonders Cease

Wonders Cease - the delightful Emma Fitzgerald and Maryanne Edwards have released Winter 2012 goodies! This collection, as with past collections, is feminine, with detail through the high-quality fabrics and simple silhouettes. Wonder Cease don't fail to please with each collection, pieces are fashion forward and beautifully tailored, Australian craftsmanship at its best.

Personally the favourites are the 'foiled again' skirt and the 'mulberry mini' - head to The Grand Social to take your pick.

Starting to Colourize

Yeah, I have no idea what my colour palette is...all the colours!
