Here is a link to a questionnaire for my univeristy project:
I have decided on a project the title of:
‘Best of British:The Relaunch of Norman Hartnell’

I would really appreciate it if you would be able to fill in this quick questionnaire on luxury British heritage brands. There are 10 multiple choice questions and it will take just a few mintutes. Every single response will help me a lot in my final degree project.

As noted in a previous post, I really love Victoria Beckham’s collections. This particular dress (Giral) is very inspiring for its origami like detailing, and exquisite fit.

This beauty (the dress!) features in her Autumn Winter 2009 collection

Seeing as it is rather a nice day, it got me thinking abouyt weddings. OK, so I don’t need a little bit of sunshine to make me think about weddings, if I am honest I think about them a lot. When I was little all I dreamed of being (besides the bride!) was a wedding gown designer. My parents knew someone who owned her own boutique, and as soon as I stepped inside for the first time my jaw dropped and something pinged inside – ‘this is what I want to do!’ I must have been about 8. It was an epiphany at the age of 8 one might say. Or…I just liked lots of pretty dresses…and I REALLY liked dressing up!

Recently, when thinking about how I would make the best wedding planner in the world (think Jennifer Lopez in ‘The Wedding Planner’ but better..obv!) I think of weddings in fields. Yes, that’s right, you heard me correctly, in one of these (minus all the pumpkins…unless that is your kinda thing)…

 And, let’s face it, it’s not difficult to come across a field in England.

So, why a field? I don’t really know. There is always a buzz about differnt types of wedding, first it was church, then hotel, then country house, then the beach…I want to swing it round to outdoorsy weddings. You can create the most beautiful setting, and best of all at night you get to light everywhere up with lanterns and fairy lights, and sticks with flames on…the photos will look great! And, you can release sky lanterns at night (see earlier post).

Here are a few images I found to get you round to my way of thinking…

Day two…sky lanterns…

To me they symbolise hope and happiness…and the soft tones they create as they float into the night sky is magical…

I love Marilyn Monroe, and I have started to collect books, and images and videos about her. I sometimes just have the urge to sit down with a cup of tea, and look through the images of her stunning beauty. The images are so timeless and classic, and will remain popular for many generations to come. People may try to impersonate her, but no one will ever come close.

Here are a selection of some of my favourite images…


“Everyone’s just laughing at me. I hate it. Big breasts, big ass, big deal, Can’t I be anything else ? Gee, how long can you be sexy?” – Marilyn Monroe
