Do you guys remember when I did the biker girl designs for a textiles collaboration.
The lovely girl Emma, who i designed for, went on to make her capsule wardrobe using my designs as a print on some of the fabric.
It hit the catwalk and since then she’s managed to go onwards and upwards with it.
It would mean the world to her (and me!!) if you could vote for her in the latest competition she’s entered into, which is the MUUSE x Vogue Young Vision Award. She’s amazingly talented and the collection itself is absolutely beautiful. 

All you need to do is click this link here and press vote!

(if you also wanted to reblog/spread this around with the link to vote that would be very very much appreciated!)

Been batting with this project for some time and it’s been emotional turmoil  It’s called invisible structures and the piece is based on wavelengths of light in the visible spectrum, and how some creatures can see different parts of it.
My research found that when exposed under UV light some birds feathers would reveal hidden patterns that we as humans can’t see without the help of ultra violet lighting, birds however can see this as their vision branches into ultraviolet wavelengths. 
I’ve used a light sensitive ink on the print that can be seen under UV lighting. I can’t really get a good picture of it but hey ho it’s finally finished.
