Holiday Haul

With the UK weather still not up to scratch and the summer holiday season in full swing, I admittedly got rather excited about the idea of not having to consider sleeves over every strap and tights under every skirt. Sun, sun and more sun – what could possibly be better? If you follow my insta and […]

The Geometric A-Line Skirt

A-line skirts are my favourite shape to wear at the moment. Cinching in at the waist, they flare subtly outwards, they’re structural form creating such a complementary silhouette. They’re so versatile too, totally easy for transitioning from day to evening wear. I love the softness of the pale blue within this skirt, how it’s calmness […]

May Favourites

Last month was a bit of an overwhelming one as months of hard work, sleepless nights and tears boiled down to the moment when I handed in my Final Major project. I moved out of my student accommodation in Epsom, Surrey, and said goodbye to the University of the Creative Arts upon completing my foundation year. […]

The Denim Pinafore

There’s one thing I’ve learnt since buying my denim pinafore: they are just so much fun! Long sleeves, short sleeves, collars, high necks; the list of styling possibilities is endless, making them so suitable for any season and occasion. I most enjoy dressing my denim pinafore down with this boxy tee keeping the look casual for the […]

Art and Design Foundation Final Major Project

  After three gruelling, tiresome months, I have finally finished my foundation degree in Art and Design at UCA, Epsom! A few all nighters, one hundred and ten servings of coffee, and numerous challenges later, I felt relief when I finally handed in my final major project last week. But that’s not to say I […]

Shopping for clothes can be a hurdle to jump when you’re on the petite side. Of course, most things are too long, but clothes can look swampy and bulky as well. I love how more and more brands are showing awareness for different body types, and the petite fit is becoming more and more popular for […]

Designing with Flowers

I’ve never been the best at drawing. My fashion design strengths much lie in the manipulation of fabric; creating shapes and forms by draping, as opposed to communicating my ideas through brushstrokes and pen marks. However, as I’m headed to pursue onto a fashion design degree come September, drawing is something I’m having to come […]

What I wore to London Fashion Weekend

Victorian frills, turtle and roll necks, this Winter I’ve really been getting into the high neckline trend. I recently discovered this lightweight crepe high frill neck dress in the ASOS sale and it was one I just could not resist! The loose fit allows the polyester to hang softly over the body, gently creating small […]

London Fashion Weekend and Holly Fulton SS16

Yesterday, I joined the excited hustle and bustle of fashion flyers over at the Satchi Gallery for London Fashion Weekend. The event celebrates the end of the prestigious London Fashion Week, exhibiting high-end designer stands to shop, industry talks, makeup experiences and runway collections fresh from LFW’s catwalk shows. Beautiful floral embroidered suede jackets would […]

Up to Date: Foundation Year

Since settling into an entirely new world at uni, I’ve been a little AWOL on the blog lately. In September, I moved to Epsom, Surrey, where I am studying an art & design foundation diploma at UCA. Having never lived anywhere other than my tiny seaside hometime, of course it took a little getting used […]
