Pollocks…. not really bollocks…?

Ah… to be 20 and full of bright ideas again.  I’ve always wondered why fashion blogging in the UK hasn’t taken off at the same pace as it has in the USA or even Europe (I can name top ten French fashion blogs but I can’t do the same for the UK….).  Of course, unlike fash-geek overe here, London’s young things are out and about or else, they’re creating sites like Pollocks that isn’t of the usual fash-blog ilk.  Newly set up by Josef Valentino, Callum T and Nantay who have an average age of 19, Pollocks is a space for individuals to upload and share their work on their Blank Canvas, be it photography, fashion design, video or anything that can be displayed on the web.  I believe they’re also going to be asking people to bring their work into a monthly gallery event to tack their work up on the walls. 

I’ll be watching the Pollocks with great interest.  Some recent finds include…

Gloria Loves Valentine has created these images for Swear Shoes to celebrate Swear’s greatest hits…

Scott Webster’s image of something blurry yet beautiful…

Simian Coates’ photography as featured in War! magazine and styled by Molaroid.  A great little freebie mag, which came out a while ago and featured many fresh UK graduate designers…

    Sing it, Sister!
    I have a sneaking suspicion that you have brighter ideas at 24 than you did at 20. Somehow, I suspect that you are on a constant evolutionary cycle towards some future tomorrow when all of your history coalesces into one imaginative, staggeringly creative thirty-something whole.
    That’s after you are crowned Queen of All She Surveys, however.
    Long may she reign!

  2. Hey I love your blog + I also have a question: how do you post all those images without ‘crediting’ them? Or is it enough to just mention the designer’s name in the particular entry? I’m just wondering because I want to start my own fashion blog, and this thing bothers me.. I don’t want to just post any images. OK hope this makes sense 🙂
