Cultural day out

Latin Festival, just had to say that that was amazing. The salsa, the food (oh my gosh BEAUTIFUL),the capoeira (lack of) music and the friends made it all amazing though we missed the floats the whole ambience about the park was just so full of energy. South america is the place, Brazil 2014 eat your heart out.

The morning was culture filled too, we went to the Hackney Wick art festival, two totally different vibes. Although most of the art in East London is undoubtably becoming the same, there was one artist, though the term designer would better define her, that really stood out.
Natalie Thakur. Her message is simple and included the most awesome leather bags in the shapes of the plastic and paper ones that should be recycled but are more likely to be seen in an up-blown as a piece of litter. Reuseability is at the heart of the collection and they come in various styles and shapes that are incredibly real to their plastic and paper counter parts.

Isn’t it funny how a lack of station staff and signal failure on a london underground line can result in the meeting of new people that you otherwise wouldn’t have even pay any mind.
Strange how maybe 10-20 years ago if you were to bump into a strangers and strum up a conversation over some common issue or problem that it was more than likely that you’d never see them again and you’d both go about your lives, but now-a-days, it has become easier to ask for a contact detail of some sort, like a facebook name or email.
Along my travels to Ribbon’s pub gathering, I ran into one such person. We engaged in conversation, that spanned our slightly more expensive and extensive journeys, until our farewells. (This resulted as problem of “touching out” our oysters at a closed station.) But its strange. We exchanged glances on the platform but didn’t interact with eachother until we experienced a similar problem.
Weirder that we exchanged emails after such a brief coincidental meeting.

When architecture met fashion

First post from the blackberry but I came across this real interesting article about a bunch architect and architectural students that team up with fashion designers and students. Inspirational as it shows the two are not too distant

Friday night was the night of Afterschool club for a friends birthday where all the REAL cool kids come to dance and enjoy drinks under £2.
After that, upon the mini adventure of finding our way home we did a little drunken shoot, he was adamant that he could conquer and climb one of the many painted elephants that have appeared around London. What started as an epic challenge, due to the slight intoxication and slight perception from the sky, soon turned into some of the funniest shit we’ve done in a while.

Always remember to take things out of your pocket when drunk before attempting to climb an elephant.

It has been soo long since I last posted something so why not a little update into what’s been going on.
I’ve finished my first year at university (thank goodness) and am finally free from the Institution until next week when i have to hand in this form I’ve been holding onto since last year… Yeah, shows my brilliant organisational skills.
Lately, I’ve been playing around a lot with my camera to find it has another menu of settings that actually cause the effect I’ve been trying to get my camera to do, plus i got my sc-29 cord for some awesome off camera flash shows. Its gonna be such an amazing summer with Morocco and Italy in the line up, maybe even America, Orlando, not to sure yet, funds need to be raised like by me finding a job. . .
HA! Good one, crack myself up, oh my turning into a little rant.
Erm, well i got my first like proper photography work experience, its amazing, we’re documenting the changes and changing East London in the build up to the Olympics, we’ve only done one day of shooting but work calls…

This is one. Im not entirely sure what were looking for in this project. Is it the dramatic change in people and how they interact? Im so unsure… anyways ima stop rambling now… my indian food’s here
Peace out x

Easter with Sales

The last week, literally, has been SALES, SALES, SALES!!! and all on Brick Lane. 
Last weekend was the American Apparel sale which you may of heard of because of the mass hype and major disturbance caused by the 2000 people storming down Brick Lane on the first day it opened. this resulted in many of us disappointed bargain hunters having to leave empty handed though all was not lost as it was open throughout the Easter weekend.
Jokes were to be had as you probably heard the story about the man who jumped on the car to only find police surrounding him with no way down.
I ventured out again both on Saturday and Monday only to return empty handed, though my friend, Katrina (named but not shamed) found this amazing buy on Monday at one of Brick Lane’s top vintage shopping spot, Absolute Vintage.
Phoenix satchel bag. Leather in really amazing condition. All clips, buckles and buttons in working order and the best bit was the price £45 which i think is a steal considering the condition of the leather bag. 
Not gonna lie, I was quite jealous at this find. 
I think you can never go wrong with a good leather satchel, really, as a student the convenient for carry books, folders and small, under 15″, laptops and note books is a kept easy by the bags divided sections. They’re an essential item to any student, like having a sturdy rucksack or backpack for when you begin the year. 

Also, today, I’d never noticed how awesome Vivienne Westwood’s collections were. ALthough the things in the sale today were two years out i still couldn’t help but be amazed at the imagination and creativity that she expresses through her work. True inspiration… LOVE HER…
