Tartan and Alexander McQueen

My daughter arrived home from college yesterday after their fashion show of the garments they've all just made with the sad news of the death of designer Alexander McQueen who has been such an inspirational influence on the fashion world in the last few years.
Having taken my daughter and a friend to The Clothes Show Live at the NEC 3 years ago whilst they were both studying textiles, I saw a fashion show there which included some of his clothing and his tartan designs. As you can imagine, with a daughter studying fashion design, I see quite a lot more of the fashion designs than most people and I have seen just how much influence McQueen had on other designers as well as the high street.
As the challenge set by Avril on Sophisticats this week is to use tartan on your project, I have created a tartan collage as a very small tribute to a designer who will be much missed.
Ingredients Used:
Image by Dezinaworld from the Sew 1 Collage Sheet
Dress Stand Digital Stamp by Stretch 'n' Bubbles
Tartan Papers except the blue one from Art Freebies Blog
Blue Tartan from a Scottish Clan Tartan Website
Text Printed On Computer
Thanks for looking, Fliss x
