Markee recreates the fun & quirky style of silent film starlet Clara Bow.
Clara Bow was the original 'it' girl, and has been inspiring fashion for generations. She seemed to just throw fun and quirky stuff together with ease, and had the confidence to pull it off every time. She was one of the first movie stars to wear men's clothing, and loved adorning her hair with stars and scarves. She was a huge animal lover as well. I've always been inspired by her fashion, because she manages to use it to allow her unique and fabulous personality shine through it.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found it a long time ago through a friend's blog and loved the projects I found
What projects are you currently working on?
I just finished making 3 lines of jewelry for an upcoming show - one is called Xian and is a collection of hand painted necklaces on leather. The second is called Paprika which incorporates very unusual (textured) paper focals and the third is called the Bohemian affair which is a set of metal and yarn necklaces that have a very bohemian feel.Read the rest of the interview »
Julie recreates the Edwardian rustic style kitchen from Downton Abbey.
In the Edwardian era, inspiration was borrowed from the Victorian era and what 'modern' should be. This recreated the early 20th century. Downton abbey is no different. The love of useful yet pretty objects is seen in its copper wares, decoration, and even the aprons. Canning jars, canisters of all sorts, porcelain, and wood tables and shelving make up this kitchen. I have compiled a list of tutorials that will help you get this look.

Learn how-to illustrate style with Emilee.
Manchester is such a beautifully diverse city. You can be anyone you want to be and everyone is catered for. Whether that be your love for photography, vintage fashion or football. There are places you can go to be around like minded people and you are able to express yourself. The weather may not be the Bahamas, but its also not monsoon season 365 days a year! The city is filled with sights and landmarks. These dating back to the Victorian to the modern day.

It started out as a pretty basic unfinished basement, so I had the ability to really put my own stamp on it. I'm a compulsive decorator/re-arranger, so it's fun to have a space that I can constantly add stuff to.
