BLACK SWAN - Official HD trailer

The Black Swan

Soo.... theres alot of press attention at the moment around the 'Black Swan' , a new film staring Natalie Portman.

Black Swan
Here is one of the photos from the Black swan..

From the press and what has been written about it i can gather that It is about a ballerina who is tryin to get the lead charactor in the play 'Swan Lake' but she is too pure and innocent and has to battle a 'friend' for the part, she tries to change her personality to play the role and becomes alot darker and tries to things that could ruinen her life after all.

The angry kiss that critics have talked about!

I am very much looking forward to seing it very soon at the cinema!!


UPDATE: I went to see this film last night in the cinema! IT is absoloutly amazing, i would recommend it, everyone should see this film. The erotic nature, the incest relationship, the power struggles.. and the fact she goes insane and mentally turns herself into a swan. It is very gory, and so not for the faint hearted, even i had to look away a couple of times when she was ripping parts of her skin off!!
You leave the cinema, still thinkin of the film, even when you go to sleep that night it is still playing on your mind. It has a very strange mother, daughter relationship aswell where the mother is in love with her daughter to an obsessive and sexual degree. There is lesbian scenes also between Natalie portman and one of the dancers.
Amazing Film. If you go and see one film this year.. make it this!!!


Its Brighton Baby!!!

This weekend I went to Brighton for the weekend with my best friends to see the sights and for one of their birthdays. I had never been before, so found it very interesting, exciting and inspirational!
We only went Saturday to Sunday, but we packed so much in and barley slept we felt like we had been there a lot longer, and managed to see everything we wanted too! I managed even to fit in a bit of research for my final collection and made it to some of the Sex shops to check out the PVC and bondage outfits for inspiration.

..Fetish Me Sir ;)

Fetish wear and rubber, PVC sexualised clothing is used across the board in fashion. I can make a simple design, edgy and controversial. Everything i want my collection to with-hold. So with the idea of using PVC and black leather in my collection i thought it best to have a look at what fetish fashion is out there and how it has been used in High end fashion soo far...
