Welcome back to another blog from me at fashioneyesta.com!
Apologies if my characteristics seem to be somewhat akin to the Cheshire Cat from Lewis Carole’s Alice In Wonderland of late. I am working very hard to produce the new Autumn Lookbook themed around folklore fashion and am also working on a secret new project, do not w
orry both will be revealed very soon!
But, for now I have some very exciting news to announce to all of your fashion lovers and especially for you fashion lovers who are visually impaired!
As some of you may know over the past year and a half I have been working closely alongside the charity Living Paintings to produce blog content and to advise them on there projects. Living Paintings is a Uk based charity with the goal of making the visual world accessible to visually impaired people through the format of tactile images and audio guides. The mounds for the images are produced with care by commissioned artists, the images are them produced using a specialised thermopress technique to be then painted and finished by a team of volunteers. This is them accompanied with a CD which is recorded by different individuals in the professional industry of audio description, acting, lecturing and narrating.

One of the current projects they are working on is there upcoming fashion pack, which is designed for visually impaired teenagers to give them the ability to experience some of the definitive concepts of fashion such as the 50s new look dress and the Teddy Boy style.
Alongside this they have created and launched their Fashion Discovery Hub, this is an online forum whereby you can access different materials related to fashion and beauty for people with sight loss, from videos, tutorials, blogs on fashion themed topics and of course some of my own work appears on the hub to. The blog has been designed in a fun, but user friendly interface and using striking shades of hot pink and white.
The Hub showcases different blog posts written by Living Paintings supporters and members, along with myself and other professionals in fashion. Living Paintings have also incorporated links to recommended stores such as TopShop, ASOS and oh… fashioneyesta!
The Hub also includes different top places to vista for fashion and style, from the V&A in London to The Fashion Museum in bath.
The hub is a place that anyone can access and enjoy and hosts a whole variety of different aspects of fashion, cosmetics and style. The team at Living paintings have done a truly marvellous job of creating this hub and it is a great mixture of practicality and fun! Just as fashion should be.
