What i've been working all term for. My jacket (right) was for a project called 'traces' we had to design a jacket inspired by memories. My group decided on a theme called 'parting is such sweet sorrow' which encompasses falling in love and heart break. Our two main trends being Romance and Grunge I've used innovative shapes and silouettes to portray the theme and colours and textures to show the bad memories on the outside and the raw memories on the inside.

lipstick imprints from many a famous model in many different shades and many an enviable pout.
This exhibition is what it says on the tin 'revolutional' touching on issues more hard hitting than whats in and whats out....politics, body image, communication, talent and the hard work that goes into the fashion industry.

The window features an array of weird and wonderful sights including men in drag, fox heads, with a hint of graffiti and british tea party.
I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you are - like me - a Luella Bartley fan.

Schilder & Korintenberg were born and raised in Germany and both studied Visual Communications at the University of Applied Sciences of Aachen. They had many years of success collaborating together as a team in the Advertising Industry before they discovered their love for Fashion and Beauty Photography.
Although Luella has recently undergone projects with Liberty London doing their new Christmas Window - I hope this isn't the end of Luella. If only I had won 45 million in the euro millions Luella would be mine!!
Here are some of my favourite Luella pieces...
