I just got an e-mail from my University saying that there is a special blog for all the students. I just looked at it and it's really cool. Students send in pictures from their work and reviews of the Fashionshows and stuff like that.

I have new glasses! I can actually see with them! I hate my contacts! I have a new ugly shirt! I got it from a big scandinavian boy and it was even to big for him. Haha!
Here's the dialougue between me and the saleswoman (D is for Dalia and S is for Saleswoman):
D: "I'd like to buy those glasses, please."
S: "Are you aware that those gasses are for old people?"
D: "Yes, but they suit me!"
S: "Please, try them on for me, I can't believe you..."
D is trying on the glasses and S stares at her with disgust.
S: "Are you sure you want to buy those glasses?"
D: "Still a yes, please."
I don't think she sells alot, though.

This is my new hat. I made it myself. This was our first project at University. It's made out of a rather cheap felt (thus the first project, first time I ever made a hat).
Hat-making is rather easy, it's just very exhausting because you have to apply a lot of pressure and you have to be very careful because you have to apply much heat so that the felt is mouldable. Otherwhise you won't get the felt over your shape.
It was fun to make and I really love the outcome. That hat is on my head nearly all the time. If you ever get a chance to hatmaking I reccomend you to do so.
Also, I found these tutorials on how to make a hat at home:

So this is the new Spring 2011 collection.
I have to be honest and tell you, that I really was afraid the label is going to change completely. But it didn't and that makes me happy. You still see some clear Mcqueenness, though slightly softened (eg. shoulders).
What I think rather interesting is how all the pieces lay somewhere between Press-pieces and normal pieces meant for selling. Take for example the corn dress. Do you think it's meant for selling or for attention? Or the dress in the first picture. The only person who'd pull that off is probably Lady Gaga, though I'm not sure, these are her colours.
Anyways, Sarah Burton did a great job here and is continuing McQueens work perfectly.
