I just found this photograph of myself (on the right) wearing a dress that I made 4 years ago whilst studying for my A-Level Textiles. I absolutely loved designing, hand-printing and making this dress, inspired at the time by my love of Basso & Brooke. On the night this picture was taken, we were holding a caltwalk show to raise money for charity and to showcase our designs. I can even remember walking down the caltwalk to Paint It Black by The Rolling Stones, i'm sure I was nervous. Sorry the image quality is not great, but this seems to be the only picture I have. However, as you can see, even back then I had a keen eye for statement fashion prints and bold colour palettes.
