24th November 2016 - Meeting with the media students

After the success of our day of filming our post apocalyptic charity shop chic we decided that we should have a meeting with the media students who would be editing our footage of the catwalk.


Before we had our meeting we all sat down as a group and spoke about it so we would all be on the same page about how we think it should be edited and how the final clip should look. Our lecturer Tai gave us some amazing visual pictures which I have posted down below, which really helped everyone get on the same page which then allowed us to all be able to speak to the media students about what we wanted.

However the meeting with the media students was disappointing and I hope that our next one we will be able to start getting the footage edited.

16th November 2016 - POST APOCALYPTIC CHARITY SHOP CHIC CATWALK FILMING !

Today was our post apocalyptic charity shop chic catwalk filming day. Prior to the filming day I had compiled my research into a moodboard which I placed into a lookboard, I have attached the photos below so you can see my research process.


Image One.This is my research for my total look, the bibliography for this moodboard will be placed below.(Pape, 2016)
Image Two.This is my first design chart based on my research in image One.(Pape, 2016)
Image Three. This is my final design chart which I have adapted from my research on image One along with my first design chart on image Two.(Pape, 2016)
Image Four. This is my hair design chart which I took inspiration from my research of images on Image One.(Pape, 2016)

On the day of the filming I helped with setting up and checking the TV studio was ready to start filming. While I was applying the make up and hair look to my model I timelapsed it, I will apply the video below so you can have a look.This filming that we did will be used during our showcase event and will be projected onto walls to then create a flowing catwalk show ( go to previous blogpost for more information on the concept) I took a behind the scenes video of my model walking the catwalk so that will be inserted below so you can have a sneak preview.

Ethical campaigns that infringe on the beauty and fashion industry.



With reports of links between make up and illnesses including cancer, fashion brands using fur and the use of child labour in the fashion supply chain , can the make up and fashion industry have any more ethical campaigns? I think so.

Microbeads.

'what are microbeads?'you may ask.Well they are tiny pieces of plastic that are added to everyday cosmetic products such as face wash and toothpaste. They are usually made out of polyethylene but they can be made out of other petrochemical plastics such as polypropylene and polystyrene. Microbeads are small enough to go down your drain and to even pass through water filtering systems and this is what the problem is.(Thorogood, 2016)

As microbeads are so small and I guess could be seen as harmless, you could be surprised to know that in certain products that around 100,000 microbeads are washed down the drain in a single application. And as they are too small to be passed through water filtering systems, this means that they end up in the sea and also in the food chain for example sealife. Scientific research is continuing to investigate and research the effects of microbeads in wildlife . A recent study had the outcome that 90% of birds have plastic in their stomachs. The most frightening thing is that humans have plastic in their bodies as well, such as from toothpaste and eating seafood that has ingested microplastics and the toxins that come with them.Have a look at figure one to see the flow chart of the use of microbeads. (Thorogood, 2016)


Canada and America are going to be banning the use of microbeads in all products and brands such as; L'Oreal, Boots, Avon and The body shop have pledged that they will not be using them.But brands such as ; Dermalogica , the Estée Lauder companies , Elizabeth Arden and L'Occitane still using microbeads in their products.(Beatthemicrobead.org, n.d.)


I had never heard of the effects of microbeads until I saw on the news that America and Canada had banned the use of them, Scientists have no scientific proof what the effect of human consumption of  microbeads  is but I know one thing for sure that having plastic that can be toxic in your body isn't good. I have to question the beauty companies that are still allowing microbeads to be in their products especially when the alternatives such as rice, apricot seeds and walnut are safer and have better outcomes, if the beauty industry knows the effects that microbeads have on the environment why are they still choosing to use them, could it just be because of the customers knowing and loving the microbeads in their products or could to be that they have a product that sells and they are worried that changing the product could have an effect on sales.If you are as shocked as i am about this please sign the petition urging Thersea May to follow in Canada and Americas foot steps here : https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/page/s/ban-microbeads?source=wb&subsource=20160114ocwb01
