1. Pierre Dubusschere
I've always admire Pierre Dubusschere's work, his work were always alive full with passion and interesting. He does lot of campaign and he would edit them in a way you wouldn't though of like the campaign he did for Y3, in order to show the concept of flexible and speed he had create neon lights flowing through images with people's movement which make the image seem even more alive and I'm blown away by how it looked, it catches my attention at the moment I saw it.
2. Thomas Lohr
Thomas Lohr was born in the south of Germany in the early 80s. His work were more minimal which are very clean neat and not to much edited for the the photographs. I admire his work and I've pick the images he've done for Hermes Accessories, in this series he didn't capture any people in the photographs but by capturing hands had replace using a model itself also through the images he had capture some shadows which are people's sihoulettes to make we think that there are interaction between the people and objects.
I've knew Cathy Edwards for a long time and her work were mostly more dramatic but in this series of photo I had realise that they are quite different from her previous works. In this photographs in 12/13 AnOther magazine she had style the photoshoot with the retro clothing and hair styling in the photos, the use of pastel background makes the shoot looks more vintage. The little curl on the fringe covering one eye gives the girl some mysterious look. The model's expression is pale without too much makeup makes the photo clean and neat.
Design led manufacturing company who specialise in fabrics and wallpapers.
This series is named Marble Gum, I think the company was trying to accomplish the gum by the melting effect pattern. The colourful fabric isn't strong as the black and white one in my opinion, because the colourful one seems too much to me, it contains too much colours which would make people hard to focus on the object that it's going to be place by or shown on. Instead the black and white one had accomplish by it's similar colours which also made the patterns clearer, and even stronger. By choosing it to be a wallpaper placing a sofa beside with the original brick wall had made me think of makeover, because the brick wall reminds us of old and the new pattern seems more modern so from the photoshoot they had create the feeling of a makeover is on progress.
5. KENDALL JENNER
Kendall Jenner is the hottest model now in the fashion industry, not only because of her family but because of her passion for fashion she had modelled a lots of campaign for big companies walked through fashion weeks and she is only 19. Her face had been said 'Changing the face of Fashion' and yes she had make a place for herself in this industry. She could be sweet, cool, cold, and in any shape the photoshoots want the companies need so I think this is the main reason why she is so famous now.
6. IRENE KIM
You might not recognise her name but maybe you would know her hair, it is a symbolism of her. Her hair is colourful all the time and they have been constantly changing, I enjoy looking at the changes of her hair colours but what I like the most about her is her energy. She has this positive energy all the time that is when you see her smile you would also smile and this is the main reason why I admire her.
7. BYRAN BOY
I'm always a huge fan of Byran Boy's blog not because of his words but his attidude towards fashion. He wears girl clothing and he thinks as long as it fits me why not ? This is the attidude I was talking about, I really admire people who aren't afraid of being judge and enjoy being themselves.
8. SUSIE BUBBLE
Susie bubble is also a blogger, I love her words not only is fashion that she would blog about but also she blog about textiles pieces which are the making part and I really enjoy reading those articles feels like I'm learning everyday. Also her style is colourful and still colourful, but what I admire is that how she play with colours she would sometimes play with contract sometimes play with the texture different weaving and fabrics would create different effects on the clothings.
I admire the clothings of Aganovich and in this season, they have designed the garments in fluent shapes but also by layering the pieces over each other had create stages.
10. JULIA KENNEDY
Julia Kennedy's work are mostly full with bright colors, the colors would be full with saturation which brings life to the photograph. When I see her work, I always fell the brightness and happiness and it would influence the audience.

5 JOURNALS / MAGAZINES
1. SICKY MAGAZINE
Sicky Magazine is one of my favourite magazine to read, I enjoy reading it because it is weird in a creative way. They doesn't follow the fashion industry's rule they don't report things everyone is following now instead they post about what they think are interesting which would surprises me everytime.
2. METAL MAGAZINE
Metal magazine is an independent magazine that is full with curious eyes and international spirit with heady mix of fashion, photography and arts.
3. i-D "NO MAKE UP IS THE BEST MAKEUP"
In the world nowdays where people loves to wear makeup and would study about makeup, but actually to me I think the best makeup is no makeup. From this journal and photographs in i-D I really agree with the idea of no make up is still beautiful because the most important is to show the real you and for others to embrace your inner beauty.
4. i-D "CSM FASHION COMMUNICATION AND PROMOTION"
This article is about my subject area which is fashion communication and promotion, the graduates are talking about their works and throughout the years how they have been inspired and what they feel about these three years. I learnt that the pathway might not be full with flowers and balloons but once you make through it, you have a bright future waiting for you.

2. Climent Pleating
3. IRIS VAN HERPEN - STAINLESS STEEL WEAVE
We've seen weaving a lot but this was the first time I heard about to weave by steels. By using this technique had given weaving a new definition, usually weaving are soft but by using steel had make the weaving seem hard and unbreakable also the colour it seems cold.
By applying fur on clothings had given softness and also the comfort feeling because of the texture of feathers also layering on lace and other textile pieces could create different textures and effect.
5. Eilish Mackintosh
knotted rope on body attachments then exaggerated stitches in leather sport equipment
6. Rowan Mersh
Multi-media sculptor who explores form through intuitive application of a material?s inherent qualities.
Rowan is a designer good at transforming ordinary things into extraordinary. Like these images he had transform textiles into necklaces also had create pieces out of paper. His pieces are also glamorous but because of the material he had chosen, the pieces looks more like clothings not only accessorize but like exagerrate parts of body pieces. The paper piece is also unique because of the material and also the size of his works aren't the regular size jewellery pieces should be, so from the size it looks larger and better in my opinion.
7. Kenji Kawusami
5 STORES / SHOPS
1. DOVER STREET MARKET
Dover street Market is a icon for stylish people to go to in London, the things there are all magnificent especially the comme des garçons fashion show garment that would be display there, you get to look at the pieces closely and look at the details and the textures which is one of the reason why I enjoy going there.
LN-CC is a retail store which I enjoy going to, it has an interesting tunnel which is for displaying shoes. They would constantly change their interior design to relate to their theme each season which is something I found interesting.
Gentle monster is a rising sunglasses brand they also like to change their interior design of the store to attract costumers which is something I could learn from them it is a way to attract costumer and also interact with them.
I like going to visit Celestine Eleven a lot, the atmosphere in the store is mysterious because of the cement walls. They want to make the customer feel a focus on pure holistic living that takes mind, body and souls to a retail experience which they have succeed because I feel peaceful and calm everytime I visit.
5.WOLF & BADGER
Wolf and Badger had the energetic interior design because of the lights in the room are strong and also they display clothes in boxes which make the costumer feels like they are shopping in their closet.
