/ Current Uni project / - The sweet smell of celebrityFriday, January 17, 2014
Since I seem to neglect this blog a little during assignments at university, I've decided a good way to combine the 2 is to create some posts based around what I'm studying and sources of inspiration for current projects I'm working on!
It's also a good place for me to collate some of my research and findings all in one place.
(For those of you who didn't know, I'm studying Fashion Promotion at University and I'm currently in the second semester of my 1st year.)
The brief: (basic points)
- Choose a famous character, person or celebrity and select and artist (photographer, sculptor, illustrator) whose work you think reflects your character.
- In the style of/or inspired by your chosen artist you should design and create the packaging of a new celebrity fragrance.
27 days till deadline!
If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know I have a big heart for IT girl Alexa Chung - so it was a no brainer to choose her for this assignment. The harder pick of the 2 was an artist or artists work which linked with Alexa.
When scrolling through her instagram feed (for research purposes of course...) I stumbled across this image:
Where she thanks 'alia_pop' for helping her with a collaboration with Eyeko! 'Alia_pop' turns out to be Alia Penner: A fabulous L.A based illustrator and artist who creates amazing pieces with acid hues and psychedelic colours! JACKPOT!
Her dream-like retro collages are fabulous and I can't wait to look into her work more!
I think she's a perfect fit for Alexa don't you?
Let me know what you think of these posts...
