DAY TWENTY FIVE (25th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Monday, August 30, 2010


*Whilst Kate and Saida decided to take the more relaxing route of Cinnamon Grands amazing swimming pool, me and Beth decided to head to Pettah market – the hustle and bustle of the market was overwhelming and we quickly got absorbed into the haggling techniques needed when you're bright blonde and white and definitely can't blend in!

*It was so nice to wander and buy the remaining gifts, birthday presents, christmas presents and family presents we had left on our lists (Beth having the biggest family I have ever heard of heehee!) 

*Getting into the spirit of haggling we got used to halving what they quoted us and working our way up from there!

*We went into an amazing sari shop and had so much fun trying on the saris and having them pleated on us - although they were so expensive I could never justify spending that much - not very practical to run for the bus in central London! The beading was beautiful and we were allowed to take pictures of each other dolled up!

* We then caught a tuc tuc back, had a quick lunch, and then made our way to meet the girls at the Cinnamon Grand (directed by my strange ability to memorise routes from shops we found it straight away - whoo!)


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
