A mention in the guardian!

The Birmingham City University crowd seemed to be going with their animal instincts. Paris Hawkins-Carr's taxidermy created a showstopping spectacle, along with Rachel Cogley's fur-and-hair creations.

Article by Rachel Hannaway - Number One of her Top 10 Moments in GFW - how exciting! 

still excited about the show!

I am still very exciteable about the show and thought I would share these with you. I do love the baby robin on the the playsuit but he frekkin decided to implode three times just before the show. I've named him UHU.

I like birds...

The collection shows a small obsession that got a little out of hand, the inspiration behind the pieces was to do with the idea of the transition of death. My designs look to realise the moment where the spirit moves with the absence of time. The physical flight of birds from the body dragging part of reality with them. It looks literally at life’s preservation into the next stage after death. the moment that we comprehend the passing of a life. It explores imminent but not complete death, it looks at death as a channel.

getting started...
