It’s hardly suprising, what with all the talent that comes out of the place, that Central Saint Martins needs a post all to itself. We start with Andraya Farrag’s lacey offerings, followed by Ayako Ohori, Crimson Rose O’Shea, Flaminia Saccucci, Holly Fowler, Holly Skousbo and Jaeyeon Lee. Next came a wonderfully restrained Victorianesque piece by James Nolan, then Juhee Han and crochet aplenty from Katie Jones. There were chunky knits from Lowell Delaney, followed by Manami Sakurai, Kim Traeger, Momo Wang, Ondrej Adamek and finally Shengwei Wang. Click on the names for a link to their full collections. More information can be found at the GFW site, images are from Catwalking. Last GFW post to come soon…

This isn’t the first tribute post, and it definitly won’t be the last. However, her greatness merits all the outpouring of grief and affection and I would like to tell you of mine. Even though there were times when it could be seen that this was coming, I always hoped it wouldn’t. She was imensely talented and had a voice with such soul in it, but more than that, she was a genius lyricist. I can’t count the times I’ve spent listening to her albums and being able to relate. But, even though she’s gone now, that will always live on. I’ve drawn Amy before, but I thought I’d do another one of her from the earlier days, when she looked happier, acompanying it is one of my favourite performances of hers. I just hope she’s content now.
