Kit Neale 3rd Year Fashion Design

I was asked by a third year menswear student to model for his critique at Ravensbourne University which then turned into a full Shoot in and around Utrophia in Deptford. Very spontaneous photoshoot. I was wearing a PVC skin tight lemon print around Deptford  in broad daylight. Madness. 

Scarf estimated at £500+


PVC + Lace

The Junkyard
Photographer: Gemma
Designer: Kit Neale
Model: Omogbolahan Kolapo-Ajala
We were in a race against light as we started just after 3 O'Clock.

I got paid in magazines... 3 Arena Homme's to be specific, Im such a mug. On the + side was also introduced to another junk yard near Lewisham station that had some interesting bits+ and bobs.

This experience has tought me to negotiate payment in punds, dollars or Yen before the shoot. To avoid an awkward situation.

Oscar Wilde Quote

I should start living by Philosophies of my own

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth"

"An Idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all"

"Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught"

Taken from Oscar Wilde-Nothing...Except My Genius

Mama Africa

When will I see your face again?

Underskin Body Modification- Contrasts European ideals of beauty

Could design a whole lot from this!

Massai Warrior

Her face reminds me of Dijimon Honsou? Skin is glowing though

An emulsion made from local resources that conjeals the hair into bobbles

Baboon- with those Sol Campbell eyebrows

Colours are amazing in this photo. Isn't she adorable?

The Massai, Of course. Famous for their jumping 


Never been so proud to be African. Then this enormous sense of guilt comes over me for 1) never embracing my "true" culture before I heard of its fruits as well as never wanting to go back after being forced about 5 times.

The White Show That Never Was

So, I was meant to be at the Central Saint Martins White show but unfortunately there was a conflict between  the designer and handing in dates

Rick Owens top/Draped Scarf


The + side of this situation was that I was fortunate enough to sit in on the first year Menswear critique and take pictures. so here they are.

How long must that arm have taken?

CSM Toilets

My favourite Look

So well made

Ginger hair + Freckles <3 - Nice work also?

Model-Andrew Thomas
Off to catholic boys School?

The tutors requested he unbutton a few buttons to reveal his chest. Ya know add some sex appeal. I dunno

Interesting effect on the jacket. Commercial...yes

Unfinished- Detailing on the bodice must have taken it's toll


Favourite Blazer/Jacket. How much in black?

Designer + Model

Nice shoes. The  two front panels can flip to the back and meet together with a zip
to reveal a simpler design

See whatta Mean?


Best Concept- Three Stages of the After life represented through layers 

Heaven, Hell & Purgatory

Maison Martin Margiela Jumper WTF? Cash to Splash


Cute Design but the models got a more bad boy look?

Having a moment

Boredom= life of a model?

So, yeah this is first year work. I'm nowhere near this standard at all ,so yeah. Let's get back to work
