|Lookbook introduction, April 2015, Cari-Jane Hakes|
Turns out, nobody is really that interested in taking away copies of your lookbook, however, I found the process of putting it all together rather useful. I used a relatively new app called Steller to pull all my thoughts and images together. It really helped to see all the pieces laid out, side by side, each with their linage of inspiration and eventual construction. You can see the whole book here.

Creating those paper cut landscapes (and seascape) was my 'reward' for finishing all my samples. Even though by that stage all I wanted to do was sleep, I'm so glad I did them. They turned out to be the perfect way to display all the pieces and created much needed focal points.
I've signed up for next year. BCTF 2016, here I come!
