DIY Portfolio

Outfitting Britain: My Latest Project!

IMG_7439







Fashion Week may be well under way but instead of prowling the lumpy paths of Somerset House, I’ve mainly been constructing my portfolio and working on getting my new blog design live! I’ve also been working on this project which I hope you’ll like! It’s a short TV show concept mock-up, used as a sort of pitch to show what kind of thing we should be seeing on our TV screens these days.


The project came about as a mixture of delight and wonder at the creativity of current British food programmes (Jamie Cooks Summer and Great British Bake off!) mixed with frustration and confusion as to why the same idea can’t be applied to clothing and fashion. Since the recession began, we’ve been told to shop more and support British made industries, so why don’t we see more classy, educational shows like mine encouraging young people to understand  the situation and be excited and inspired to buy British?

My programme would be 5 episodes long, each featuring a different part of the presenters’ outfit. This one is about jewellery, in particular one of my favourites – Tatty Devine! I do hope you’ll take a look at my little show – I was advised by my tutor to present the show, just as a way of adding context so feel free to have a good giggle at my noob-ness when I speak! Thank you to everyone who helped me realise it!





The Show!

    I am curious to find out what blog system you are working with? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

    This is INCREDIBLE! I can’t believe how professional it is, I sort of went straight to the video without reading and expected it to be some bbc production, truly amazed!! XX

    Oh lovely, this is such a sweet video! Yet at the same time you’ve picked a really intriguing topic. I’m definitely curious to see some more :) It’s so nicely and professionally shot and edited too.

    I totally agree with you, there isn't enough interesting programs educating us about fashion and especially british fashion! Something I'm passionate about myself!

    Well done for creating this lovely piece! You should be very proud xx

    >This is so professionally made! You should be embarrassed you're very natural in front of the camera. I was rather disappointed when I realised it was only three minutes long! xx
