Claudia Skoda is a german Knitwear Designer, she started her line in the 70ies, being part of Berlins punk underground-scene. She was the first one to bring Knitwear into High Fashion.
Her fashion shows in that time haven't been about some thin models walking down the catwalk, they were about performance. For her "Big Birds" Show she wanted the models to go to the zoo to look what birds looked like flying, so they could imitate the birds motions on the catwalk. To look up more on her Collections and her current Collection, go to her homepage here.

On that occasion I also want to announce that I'm officially a fashion design student from now on. I made it, I got in Fashion Uni, and that's why I've been absent almost all month. It was so much work, getting in, that I forgot about friends, family and blogging. I'm sorry, and I'm going to try to post more, now that I'm a fashion design student. I might also give you a little insight into the studies.

Random Photography

Manequinns at Central Saint Martins College.

These are the starting pictures for my collection I did at CMS in London. And my huge teacup. Luckyly I cought a cold just when the course started. My professors answer to the teacup: "I'd be pissing for a week if I drank all that."

Here's another picture from London. I was visiting the Maison Martin Margiela exhibition.

This is at V&A in London. Some little children were playing in the water, 2 seconds after that picture is taken it started to rain.
That's my friends and me last year at The Horrors Gig in Vienna celebratig Jasons Birthday (the guy from that Horrormovie).

This is hangning in my cousins kitchen in Berlin.

These are 42 bread dumplings (Semmelknödel is just a much better word, sorry) my sister made with my help for my grannys birthdayparty.

The Clownjacket

Necklace (explained before)

2 very stupid pictures of me wearing the Jacket (they're the only ones existing, please forgive me). The first pictures is taken at Beyond Retro where I first saw the Jacket but I didn't buy it, when I came back a few days later and it was still hanging there all alone I had to buy it!
The girl in the second picture is a very cool young woman from Barcelona whom I met at St. Martins College, where we took a course together.

Haircolours and crazyness.

Top: Topshop
Shorts: American Apperal
Striped Jacket: Bejond Retro

Necklace: The ankh was a gift from my dad when I was 2,
I made a necklace out of it when I was 18

The first picture is probably the best picture taken of me and my friends. It describes us perfectly.
I had to post the third picture because of the hair! See how colourful it is? It's great, I lurve it!
