The Golden Girls…

I have just finished watching Project Catwalk. It has been a great programme for me, as I have always been interested in fashion and design. The winner was…and look away if you have not seen it yet!!! hehehe! Leanne Collins the Issey Miyake style ‘pleats please’ lassie, her style was absolutely beautiful and very innovative but I couldn’t help loving Kenley’s style…that cutey pie 1950’s boho chic look, always appeals….and then you have Korto, now I have been a fan of hers for weeks now, I just love her style and the way she always portrayed colour and diversity in her designs….well I just loved it all…..this programme bought out my creativity…Hubby and I would sit on the sofa telling each other, each week what we would of done! LOL! I bet you did too eh!

I loved them all…but as to a winner it had to be Korto for me…I liked the way she designed clothing that a larger woman could of worn…and that tribal jewellery! phew, so yummy. But I am going through a bright and colourful stage at the moment, as I have said before. And I can’t help thinking the styles that I would of created…kinda colourful 50’s chic – meets asymmetrical…oooh doesnt that sound gooooooood!

I think I had better sign up for a fashion course at our local University…KIAD (Kent Institute of Art and Design) is just around the corner…Medway boasts so much talent already…..I wonder if they are ready for me!!!Love Happy x

    I just found your blog – and I love it! I do love Cath Kidston, but it is very difficult to find her items here in California. Your colors are scrumptious and you are just adorable! No wonder you are named, Happy! And, any color with RED is perfect… perfect with pink, perfect with blue, perfect with polka dots…

    Korto is from the town I live in and last fall I got to see her in person when she took part of a local fashion show put on by a great little local shop that supports indie designers. That night was one of the best ever, and I felt just like I was in Bryant Park sitting next to Heidi and Tim as I watched all the models strut down the runway – it was SO much fun! So glad you loved my “home girl” too!
