Talking to Corr Blimey

I should have blogged this a while ago but I have been stuck working on a textiles project.

Early last week I met the Amazing Corr Blimey.
It was a great experience to meet them.  We talked forever about the fashion industry itself; how it worked, designing and starting your own line.

The two designers, Louisa and Steven, said they met in design school and found they had the same design aesthetic and one of the things they started doing together was pulling things out of op shops and pulling them apart and sewing new things on to create a new garment.

We also talked about different fashion era’s and Steven said that there was an element to each era that was beautiful.
I would like to thank them for meeting me, I learned a lot about the fashion industry and it was great to talk to people who work in it.

I would also like to thank them for the most gorgeous bag which you can see me holding in the picture below, it was a sample piece based off their collection they made for Fashfest.
