Tilda Swinton

So I don't really know why I like Tilda so much. I have not seen many of her films and on the whole I don't know that much about her. Yet every time I see pictures of her I just feel so inspired. She has such a great face. That gorgeous, androgynous face with those chiseled cheekbones and and intense naked eyes, I often think about her when sketching models for my designs.

I had known about her before but my love of her was born when I saw this editorial in AnOther Magazine (issue16 SS2009). The cover star, modelling the new Spring/Summer designs of the freshest and most exciting talent of recent fashion. The styling combined with the attitude, elegance and poise Tilda brings to the photographs just struck me. Hard.

It's difficult to describe what I felt, and what I still feel, when I look at these images but I just love the fantastical, romantic,mysterious, powerful edge that the outfits conjure. Tilda plays the role of this strong, extraordinary woman beautifully. The emotive face never says too much but still captures the imagination.

They may bot be knew but imagination never has to be on trend.

SO I have wanted to start Blogging for ages now but I just haven't because I thought my opinion wasn't good enough or I just wouldn't know what to post. But whatevuuuur I'm going to post and who gives a plop if its a load of old shitcakes. I want to write about the shit in my life that inspires me, or makes me laugh or cringe. Just stuff that I want to boast about and stuff.

So no-one is reading this at the mo but that doesn't matter at the moment. I know that there are so many blogs out there that have much more focus and valid views than mine but I just want to make this somewhere that I can spill out my guts about a new trend I think makes people look like pandas with IBS.

I don't know what the name is about either... Just was thinking of names that would relate to me and what I wanted to post here and that seemed fitting. I am going to post things that I find visually interesting. [photographs I take, photographs others take, illustrations I do street style I see, articles, editorials and other things I like, Maybe one day I will have to express my love of the colour green and all the shades that I like.]

It's basically a self indulgent hole that I can pour thoughts into and a space where I can just say things and not give a fuuuuck.

So there.
