The Doll.org

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 24th, 2006

 

A lecture from thedoll.org.

Lee Lapthorne
MA – Creative Director of doll was a speaker at this event. He talked about the
challenges new designers face and that once you’ve had your first a catwalk show why it’s
importance to be able to show each season.

What do you need to be
considered for On/Off?

You need the basics: a look
book, a website, stockists, proof that you are able to manufacture your
collection. Ok so you might feel that if you have all this you’re not a new
designer. But really these are the basics.

One of the questions
asked was "Is the new designer forced to be a luxury designer because they
can’t compete with the high street?” Maybe this is true. Also said was that
there is going to be a culling, a fall in the market as London i s oversaturated with designers. Any
thoughts?

Dsc04360Dsc04359_1Dsc04363 Anyone who meets Amiee
McWilliams
is going to adore her. First of all she is very striking, she’s
captivating, you look at her and you just want to know know her. Amiee spoke at
the lecture and talked about puting together her collection and all the hours
it really takes, and the team that supports her.

Hip London Shoot

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 13th, 2006

Worked with 2 new assistants today! People don’t realize how much work is to be done on a shoot day. Of course most of the stylist’s work is done before the shoot day. You meet with the photographer and make-up artist and hair stylist,  you might make a mood board, visit Pr’s, call in the clothes and of course you have to find the right model for the shoot!

If the stylist work isn’t prepped before the shoot day she’s in trouble!For the assistants there are hundreds of little things from organizing the rails, to ironing all the shirts, keeping track of the credits and making cups of tea! Then of course after the shoot day all the returns need to be organized and sent back…

St Brides Church

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 11th, 2006

Ruth Palmer invited me to go watch fireworks at St Brides Church. It was quite amazing as I got to up to the very top steeple in the church. I love this church as it is the inspiration for the tiered wedding cake!

We had the pleasure to watch Ruth perform as she was helping to evaluate the cost of these violins for a buyer! One of the violins was worth 2 million pounds. And in all truth it sounded beautiful. I learned so much about the history of violin making and the importance of the wood, the tree it comes from, the forest it grows in and how only time will tell if it is a great violin. But how truly fortunately to watch Ruth perform in such an amazing church with wonderful acoustics. The last picture is of the bell, it melted during the bombing and this bell was made out of the melted bells. It’s all quite impressive. Going up the steeple was very other worldly. The stair case was narrow and the steps were hight, the wind was whipping around us. We had champagne to celebrate Remembrance day and the wind would send the champagne flying. You could even feel the vibration & sway from being so high up.

Personal Shopper

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 10th, 2006

Lately I’ve been doing quite a bit of personal shopping. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it. Ok, I do love shopping as I’ve always felt that shopping can be empowering. Even if we say we don’t judge people when we first meet them, we do get an impression and and that initial impression is based on what they (and we) look like. Looks have all ways been important it’s only recently that the everyday person, not just the celebrity has a wide array of choices. And not just clothes but make-up and hair too! I think it’s all those choices that make it confusing and it’s become a rarity to find a shop assistant that really cares and is helpful. Many of my clients inspire me. To see someone face light up when they can see themselves on the outside what they feel on the inside is really amazing.

We shot in Floria for a week, the weather was beautiful and we all ate lots of oranges & grapefruits! We might look like professionals but really we are tourists, getting sun burnt and eating too much! I love the pictures from the plane it looks magical. I was sitting by the wing and it seemed to go on forever, like a cat walk! I wasn’t sure what I was expecting to see!

Hotel Room

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 7th, 2006

Club Med In Florida for a week! It was work but at least on the last day I got to go to a kick boxing class and a pilates class outside looking over the beach front,and then back to London. It’s funny when you go away because you really having a sense of what home is. I’m not sure I would want to live in a hot climate. I love summer and sunglasses but I love coats, cardigans, layers and soft leather boots.

Balancing The Books & Wallflower Screening

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 4th, 2006

This morning I went to see a sceening of my friend, Jade Syed-Bokhari’s film today. Both of the films were showen at the LA Shorts Fest but today was the first time they were screed in the UK. www.whitefirefilms.com . I was very sleepy because I just got back from Floria – where I had no internet for a week. And the week before we were changing providers so I feel like my life line was cut off for a while. Anyway it’s great to be back on line so I can tell you about all the amazing people I keep meeting. I really adore Jade and can’t wait to work with her again!
