Newspaper Club’s blog post on my video, always a pleasure printing with them!
Vogue Talent Contest 2013
One of my aims was to enter the Vogue Talent Contest this year! I’ve attempted every year for the past few, and always rejected my own work at the end as it gets close to the deadline. I thought doing it this year would be a good, reputable competition to enter as part of the Professional Practice Module!
ModeConnect / Your View - now a fashion competition
“YourView is now also a free Fashion Competition opened to undergraduate fashion students worldwide. All submissions of fashion creative work in the form of apparel, illustration, photography, video, surface or textile designs are welcome.”
To enter all you had to do is Tweet the image to enter into the competition, include the #modeconnect hash tag and direct it to them. They ‘favourite’ the few they like and will then choose from those the winners and runners-up to the competition!
I decided to make this film of my magazine for my website to be able to really convey the three dimensional and print qualities of the publication. The cut out page, for example, does not come across in images or flip-through pdf’s, as the page cannot be cut away using these platforms.
I wanted the film to simply show the magazine from beginning to end, and I may include a link underneath with the link to the paper on Newspaper Club, so an audience would be able to order a copy themselves!
I don’t know who the artist/creator of this image is, but I really need to find out!! This stirs up all remnants of the ideas I had for photoshoots in Mentality, and almost annoys me at how appropriate this would be! And how simple it is, yet signifies a whole range of deeper associations and connotations, much of which could have helped my final project a few months ago. !!!

Garments: Jade Vincent
Photography: Beth FielderLast week I went out to shoot Jades collection again, this time on location in a boxing ring. The setting was linked with the sportswear-inspired cut and fabric of the clothing, and the focused career woman the collection is aimed at. This was very much Jades idea for the shoot, and through trying to realise her vision with her, I gave direction along the way.
The shoot worked really well to showcase the clothing, bright lighting with a lot of space for full length shots. However, I would have tried to create some more abstract images, perhaps less made up facially and more real action and movement going on in the subject of the scene.
I would treat this shoot as a test (although Jade was very happy with the images) and plan to reshoot again now I have more of an idea of what could work better.
I was invited to Live Blog at the Bristol Fashion Week show this afternoon! It was a really energetic fun show with all clothing from stores at Cribbs Causeway.
If you follow my twitter, you’d have seen that it was red hot today with pics and posts about each scene of the show. All bloggers tweets were compiled on the official website as one big live blogging session, which was great fun!
Here are just a few snaps from the shows, I won’t do a look by look run through as all info can be found on http://mallcribbs.com, but have a look on my twitter if you want to see how the show panned out!!
Bristol Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013
I’ve been invited to the Live Blogging show for the Bristol Fashion Week show at the Mall, Cribbs Causeway this Friday, which is exciting! I’ve also been approved to officially photograph the shows too, which is definitely a bigger job that the fashion shows I’ve photographed before!
I think its pretty important to keep an eye on the high street as well as designer collections, as its the high street stylers that mix pieces and cause that bubble up effect.
