Hi my name is Ann, I am a womenswear fashion designer, and have spent the past 20 years designing clothes for a large chunk of the uk high street.
So,there is a pretty good chance you may have worn one of my creations.
My blog has come about because I have a massive archive of old magazines, mainly from the 1990’s onwards that I cannot bare to part with.
I blame an old tutor of mine, he had an archive from the 70’s and 80’s that I helped move for him, when I saw it I realised that I could no longer rip up my mags to create mood boards for my work and that i needed to preserve my favourites.
Through college and several house moves along the way I have managed to keep my magazines with me.However, renovations and an expanding family means we are running out of space, so some of them just have to go.
This is my way of saying goodbye, and sharing the images I have loved along the way.
The imagery that has inspired me through my creative career.
The imagery I select, will also be linked to things that I am currently inspired by.
I have always been intrigued by trend, how things bubble up and become an influence, so I also want to share my current inspirations and fashionable thoughts along the way.
One of the best parts of my day job is inspiring others, so hopefully by sharing my thoughts and ideas i will start inspiring you, my readers as well.
So lets start with dusting down these magazines.
i hope you enjoy sharing this with me, do let me know.
