Graphic prints

After watching styled to rock on Tuesday I knew I wanted to do a post about prints. For those of you who didn’t see it (if you don’t want me to spoil it stop reading now), this week the designers challenge was to design their own graphic print and make a stage outfit for Cheryl Cole.
They were given a digital camera and were told to go out on the streets of London and take pictures of things that inspired them and their favourite picture would be manipulated by a graphic designer and printed onto fabric. I loved this idea, how cool would it be to take a picture of something and have your own print made.  One of the designers went to an aquarium and took pictures of the tropical fish, the designer then picked out and cropped elements of the picture to create an amazing colourful design, you couldn’t even tell it had come from a picture of a fish.

Some of the outfits were a bit quirky (I have featured my fave below) but I loved the concept and colours of the prints. I remembered that during my last visit to Primark I came across their gorgeous limited edition range that included some amazing prints. I love the fact that event though were slowly rolling into the winter months bright colours and bold prints are still pretty much up there with the other AW trends.

Here are my fav picks from the collection.
