' The wedding institute ' - Vintage wedding fair

Here is a few photographs from ' The wedding institute ' Vintage wedding fair at Saltburn by the sea.This wedding fair was a collaborations of many creative wedding companies and small creative businesses, which have all worked together to create 'the wedding insitutie'.There was everything from vintage wedding dresses,  antique jewellery, vintage wedding stationary and beautiful place settings and crockery and gorgeous floral arrangements with delicate colour palettes to fit the nostalgic theme.There was also hair, makeup and nails which were all linked into the vintage theme, were models demonstrated throughout the event.Everything was under one roof and every stall was very lovely and beautifully styled, The committee were very helpful to my boyfriend sister the 'bride to be' and she went home being a very happy bride.Here are a few photos i took showing some of the beautiful stalls and products.

This week i thought i would change the trend concept for the FV blog.As i am in my final weeks of finishing my textiles degree i have been inspired by some of the 3rd year students final collections.One of the fashion fabric design students Helen Proudlock final collection is really coming along and her designs that she has created so far are very eye catching due to the vivid use of her exotic/experimental colour pallet along with the mix of innovative styled prints.She has made such a versatile collection by being experimental and using a wide range  of fabrics and  techniques such as screen printing, digital printing and the contemporary technique of sublimation printing.I have created this concept board as i think Helen prints are very inspirational and create a lot of trend directed ideas which could be translated into S/S13 future trend.

  • Contemporary twist on English floral prints.
  • Vintage Americana Tropicana - trend inspiration from "Vintage Americana"
  • African inspired insect prints - trend inspiration from "Power Prints"
  • Miami feel,  cool and fresh prints ready for the beach.
  • 1950's Art Deco geometric prints updated with mashed up animal prints.
  • Traditional paisley with a Middle-Eastern vibe.

The overall trend and collection has a bright bold pattern clash statement:
  • Experimental prints from power prints/floral ditsy prints/scale variation create a wide and interesting look to the full collection.
  • Mixing traditional screen printing with digital and contemporary sublimation print.
  • Heavily inspired by new fresh talents like Holly Fulton, Matthew Williamson and Thankoon.

Helen Proudlock is a fresh emerging BA (Hons) Fashion Textile Designer from the UK. Her eye-catching collection of fabulously bold statement prints are clearly pattern focused, which show a interesting mix of various cultural ideas. I really love this collection and it has lots of potential to give other creative designers inspiration and trend direction. I definitely can see this trend catching on and be seen on the catwalks very soon.
