My Final Year At University

My Final Year At University

Dear followers,

I know I haven’t been updating my blog much this past year and can only apologise. This year has been completely crazy as I have been completing my degree in fashion promotion.

Throughout this year I have been working on a project called Acute. Acute is a bespoke, knowledgeable, trusted, skincare brand that specialises in providing product choice for individuals, who feel they’re not represented in the skincare market. Acute is a company that would categorizes products by skin types such as sensitive, oily, dry, eczema, combination and many other different skin types. It seeks to find products that work and provide more natural organic products to their consumers. One of my aims was to create this company to be as sustainable as it can be. I have presented my idea and designs at Transitions 2.0, Graduate Fashion Week and the Ravensbourne Degree Show.  I also had the AMAZING Opportunity to meet CLARE WAIGHT KELLER who is THE Artistic Director Of GIVENCHY !

Beauty & The Beast ….

Beauty & The Beast ….

My Day Entails……

Being in love with the new adaptation of Beauty & The Beast.

It feels in forever since the last time I watched the old version, but it wasn’t long until I found myself internally singing along to the new one.

It truly was a spectacular film filled with amazing performances throughout, especially by Emma Watson. Who plays Belle’s role, exactly how you would imagine a Disney princess.

Towards the end of the film, I found myself nearly about to stand and give applause, then remembered where I was. (Cough Cough…. Seriously I nearly just did that)

But for a Disney fan, the film is definitely not a disappointment especially if Beauty & The Beast is one of your favourites like it is mine.

Fashion Promotion

Fashion Promotion

As summer has ended, my second year of University has started. So over the summer I have acquired the perfect books to help me further in my degree.

Fashion Promotion In Practice

By Jon Cope & Dennis Maloney

This book contains information and insights about the Fashion Promotion world. The content explores areas such as new technologies, tactics, strategies, visual merchandising, magazines or advertising. I find the book to be informative and very visually interesting, and I especially like the creative side with information about blogs, film, websites and much more.

Creating A Brand Identity

By Catharine Slade-Brooking

Creating A Brand Identity is a book that contains tips and tricks on each process, whether it be from researching, creating mood boards, rebranding and relaunching, plus much more. I really like that the book is laid out so that it allows you to learn each chapter, and then try the activities on how to create a successful brand.

Fashion and Textile Design with Photoshop & Illustrator

By Robert Hume

This book is a step-by-step guide explaining two essential programs for the creative fashion world. It explains and demonstrates how to master layers, explore varied approaches towards drawing a garment. It’s an easy layout enabling you to follow the instructions, and explains each program whilst giving you shortcuts.

Hope this is helpful !
