Tast of "Touched"...

As i am in college one of my assignments was called Touched. It came from the idea of the Liverpool Biennial exhibition and i visited the exhibition to get my inspiration for my art work. I came across many drawings and paintings and seen the ammount of artists that got involved in putting this event together.

Biennial exhibition...

The Liverpool Biennial exhibition is one of the largest and one of the most exciting contemporary visual arts events in the UK. It was recorded to have scored at least 960,000 visits in 2008 which is quite amazing and to know that i was one of them is also exciting! So i'm guessing that is was a very succsessful event. Unfortunatly if you didnt get to attend the Biennial as it finished on 28th November there is a book that is being published in March this year. If you are interested i personally would go on the website and im sure there is plenty of information!
As i went to the exhibition myself i found it really interesting. There was not only art formed on canvas but there was also objects and media as in films getting showed in different areas of Liverpool. I took plenty of photos...obviously...and below are a few that i would like to share.

It's bloggers all round!

Blogs are getting more important each year, and to the fashion industry they are everything. From bloggers on the front row of catwalk shows to just being at a computer screen we can find out the latest trends, styles and colours within seconds due to live stream information  including up to date posts, images and videos from the very moment in time of them being delivered in the runway. The impact of blogs is very important to the future and to the fashion industry as they are becoming the most viewed and most popular for quick access information on the go. Social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, News letters, live news feeds and online magazines are also very important and very much needed as they also give us up to date information. Eventually in possibly years to come, blogs will be everything to most people especially to those working in the area of fashion. Due to blogs and social sites, magazines are not doing so well, as Tierra Wilson posted from The Fashion Techie “they are dropping like flies”. As much effort that goes in to the publication, most people now just want to click away and read the latest blogs whilst working, traveling or maybe sitting on the sofa instead of buying a magazine and reading them. This will have a great impact on many fashion magazine companies and therefore they need new strategies to keep their audiences interested. Many bloggers have made themselves “internet famous” such as Tavi Gevinson who is a well known major fashion blogger and Susanna Lau who is also a well known fashion blogger. In months and years to come and to this present day, the number of not just fashion bloggers but every other typical blogger is massively increasing. So what we really want to know is “How are bloggers important to the fashion industry?” They create new communication and reach wide audiences delivering free and different information. They keep people informed whilst keeping current trend forecasts and they provide stylists and designers with new ideas and inspiration providing them with their own genuine opinions. An innovator also comes from bloggers and they trickle up coming from instant live stream collections.

Tavi Gevinson, the youngest fashion blogger who travels around the world to many fashion shows with great inspiration and ideas.

Susanna Lau, rated as one of the best fashion bloggers.
