Hellen Bullock, who not only exhibited as part of Vauxhall Fashion Scout exhibition room during September 2011 Fashion week, but also genially illustrated some of the catwalks with her personal drawing style, has been featured at Dazed Digital as part of their Rise section.
Don´t know her yet? This is how Dazed described her, and we love it: "For anyone who thinks a Mark Rothko piece too depressing, fashion textiles designer Helen Bullock’s MA collection is like a fresh breath of life. Bold, bright, glittered shapes and blocks of jarring floral"
"Bullock’s visceral relationship with her materials is a direct manifestation of the designer’s own self - vivacious, spontaneous and real."
Read the whole interview (Dazeddigital.com) to discover how she describes her own aesthetic, why she does not use digital print, or which are the 13 colors she has dyed her hair, so far.
Finally, we have to quote this whole part of the interview, as we proudly have the results of what they are talking about... Read and scroll down.
DD: You did illustrations for the Vauxhall shows – what were you looking out for?
Helen Bullock: I’ve never done moving drawings before. I do a lot of quick poses in my illustrations classes (Helen also teaches on short courses at CSM) and with that I look out for weird poses, so hopefully there’ll be some kind of weird movement in there.
DD: I don’t know if the models are going to give you that Helen.
Helen Bullock: I know! I’ll be looking at the clothes a lot more but just any kind of strong features, bold lines or color and signature details. "
