Girls Cruise - Autmn/Winter 2012/2013 Trend - Transitional

Girls Cruise is a more transitional trend for Autumn/Winter 2012/13 leading one of my favorite Summer nautical themes into a more autumnal story. Keeping to the traditional colour palette of Red, Navy and Blue I am steering away from the traditional stripe combos and translating them into larger scale bold floral's. I am also mixing in appliqués to go alongside to make the range more tactile and fun!
I have been working on a few prints for this theme now. Below is a sneak preview! If you want to purchase prints under this theme please contact me on 07941 205 063 or to book an appointment. Also, feel free to leave comments too!

College Leagues - Boy's - Autumn/Winter 2012/12 Trend

Here is an american theme collegiate range I have created for Autumn/Winter 2012/13. It is inspired by American heritage and collegiate sports. As this is a graphics theme that contains a lot of typography I have tried to give it a vintage/retro feel by drawing all my fonts up so that they appear almost painted on. There are also a lot of textures and distresses to give a vintage theme to the print techniques. I have mixed all prints with badging and appliques to add a little texture and so that the prints don't look so flat.
