Ive been thinking about fruit for quite a while, how i'd love to be Carmen Miranda...in fact i think my grandma could secretly be carmen miranda! When i was little i remember thinking how amazing she was and how i wanted to be her when i grew up. All these fancy showgirl costumes, the singing and dancing, kitch, fruit and jewellery draped all over her really have always appealed to me.
So imagine my exitement when i saw the Prada spring summer 2011 collection, particularly the bananna print!
i love the colour and cartoon style of the print, although i think the garment shapes would mostly suit a slim figure i still need some fruit in my life!
I have spent the past few months sourcing vintage fruity garments and fruity fabric not to mention making little fruity shapes to adorn wherever i please. i think more people should be fruitified! so expect to see more than your 5 a day at the upcoming vintage and craft fairs we have booked! &
