Blast From The Past Photo Shoot

This is one of my favourite photo shoot that did in College while I'm doing a Fashion Industry Practice course in GTI. The theme of the photo shoot is from the 50's fashion era. The dress that my model wore for this photo shoot is from New Look and then I just added the detachable collar. I think the location helped me achieve the look that I want because of the ambiance of the place and the lighting that makes the photos more dramatic.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake

Because I want to bake something and I think this is a simple recipe to follow and yummy at the same time! 

200 g Digestive biscuit (or graham crackers)
200 g soft cheese
100 g sugar
2 tbsp sour cream 
100 g melted butter
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp strawberry flavouring (optional) 
3 tbsp self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
Strawberry jam for topping
Fresh blackberry (optional)

1. Preheat your oven 180C/170C fan/gas.
2. Put the biscuits in a food processor or put the biscuits into a sealable bag and crush them up into tiny crumbs, make sure there are no big chunks. 

3. Melt the butter and pour it in the crushed biscuits. Mix it together until well combined.

4.  Line a muffin tray with 12 muffin cases.

5. Press the mixture into the base of the paper cases.

 6. Bake for 10 mins. Leave to cool.

 7.For the filling, beat the cream cheese in a bowl until smooth.

8. Then stir in your self raising flour, sugar, vanilla extract, strawberry flavouring and sour cream. Add your eggs one at a time and make sure not over beat the mixture.

9. Pour the cheesecake mixture over the biscuit base. Bake it for 10 mins. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside for 15 mins.

 10. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and set aside to cool for 30 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the tin. To serve top the cupcakes with a spoonful of strawberry jam and fresh blackberry or any type of berries you like!

 Enjoy! =)

Window Display

I did this window display for my design module in GTI 2yrs ago. I got my inspiration from an art gallery. Instead of usual art gallery I added colourful dots to cover the whole window to make it attractive and interesting.

Colourful Photo Shoot

Here's another project I did in GTI for my design class. My inspiration for my balloon dress is the Japanese artist Rie Hosokai who is a florist who makes beautiful balloon dresses. Playful and colourful life was the theme of my photo shoot because balloons are always used as children's toy or decoration in the party so why not wear it?
