Hi guys, I'd just like to make you all aware of my long-awaited Kickstarter campaign which started yesterday (29th May).

It's a 30 day campaign and I'm trying to raise £4,500 to officially launch my Equality & Diversity organic apparel brand properly. So if you support E&D, use the #ED in connecting with me via social media

Also check out my 60 second promo animation on YouTube - I have great rewards which are greater in value than the base pledge!

Many thanks in advance,

As a fashion illustrator, I was asked last year to produce an image to promote a company that sells plus-size fashion.

Researching a little into what constitutes "plus-size" fashion, I was horrified to discover that "plus-size" models these days are a SIZE 12 and above!!

Great topic to bring up! It's a discussion that seems very left out of the bigger fashion conversation, even though recently there has been a small trend to publicize larger size models.

I recently read a great article on the benefits of giving and receiving clothing for premature babies and their parents. Clothing for the premature babies actually helped the parents as well as the staff to bond more with babies that are rather isolated inside of a glass box. It was a great article but pointed out the power of how clothing can help people 'feel' better about themselves and others.
