The End

16 Jun

Last night was the friends and family evening of the BIAD show.

My family and closest friends accompanied me to the evening and mingled with my uni’ friends.

The evening commenced with a presentation by Alison, the course director about the past three years, followed by an awards ceremony for students who had particularly well at certain things.

1st year memories of styling hair for a fashion show at House of Fraser

I was astonished when my name was called for the final award: Fashion Retail Management Scholarship Prize 2011.

Accepting my prize

The Prize!

As well as a glorifying certificate I won a lovely bottle of Harvey Nichols champagne and some vouchers to spend in the Birmingham store! I can’t thank my tutors Alison, Julia and Ellie enough for giving me this award!

What a wonderful send off from a fantastic journey!

Thank you

A Lick of Paint…

1 Jun

I’ve just got back from spending a couple of hours at uni with my friends Katy and Sarah. We were helping out painting the Fashion Retail Management room in preparation for work on the BIAD show to begin.

The show will exhibit our dissertation projects and there is the opportunity to show our industry contacts what we’ve been up to, as well as our friends and family.

So we want to room to look spic and span, just incase Stella McCartney pops in for a cup of tea!

Hard at work

Attention to detail

I'm too busy to even look at the camera!

Professional Me!

My business cards came in the post today!

I designed them myself and added a spot of colour to make them noticeable and attractive!



Matching nail polish!

I can use them at Graduate Fashion Week and the BIAD show, and I’ll be keeping some in my purse incase I ever run into Vivienne Westwood (as I so often do!)

I am actually going to an ‘entrepreneur meetup’ in a couple of days; where local business owners and people wanting to start up their own business can meet up to talk shop. So I am hoping these will be very useful!

BIAD Show Preparation Begins…

10 May

Today I had a tutorial with Joe Miles to discuss the poster that will be hung above my dissertation project at our end of year show.

As well as a few lines about myself I also need to come up with a layout and wording that complement and explain my project quickly and interestingly.

First I have sketched out a few possible layouts to see what works best, then I started putting the layouts into In Design.

Here is my final poster…fashion retail management
I chose this one as the alignment and width of the text complements the content of my dissertation. I have also used the same font.

I wanted to avoid this looking like a collage so have selected one image which I believe is the strongest from the photoshoot I produced to support the project.

Finally adding the ‘Covet’ logo demonstrates the brand image which is consistent throughout my work.

The poster will also feature a short statement about myself, and here is what I have come up with…

Arriving at university with a strong creative flair and an organisational nature I have been able to develop these qualities throughout my degree.

Through a diverse range of modules and high profile internships at Fluorescent PR, Good Housekeeping Magazine and Kerry Taylor Auctions, I am equipped with the experience and skills for a flourishing career in the fashion industry.

My love of fashion amplifies my drive and ambition to succeed.
