Dazed & Confused; Januarys Issue

definitely reccomending this months dazed & confused magazine. i had a pleasant surprise when i came across a spread on one of my favourite artists of all time. feminist artist barbara kruger, i have been a fan of her controversial work since my first year of a-level art. she's seriously worth checking out. she hasn't actually got her of her own website due to other people having copyright of her name (pretty outrageous i know!) but here's one someone has made on her behalf; http://www.barbarakruger.com/

welcome to my blog beauties!

so, i thought i'd jump on the band wagon and start my own blog! i'm a student in sheffield studying fashion design! i love fashion & art so if you also share these loves feel free to follow! this is probably going to turn into a distraction from uni work, as facebook no longer suffices. i'll keep everyone posted on the briefs i have at uni and how i'm getting on so anyone currently studying fashion or thinking of studying fashion, this will give you some insight and hopefully turn into your little online look book & bible! :)
