The Feeling, Fall Out Boy, Lady Sovereign

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 31st, 2007

The Klaxons, Fall Out Boy, Lady Sovereign, The Feeling – A free show at Koko in Camden!! A great line up for the evening. Lady Sovereign was great. She wore a side pony with a small corn row on one side, great make up, strong eye brows, with a baggy t & jeans. She’s very cute. Lady Sovereign had to sing her first song again, since she said the work “Fuck” which are the original lyrics but I guess it has to have a more friendly version for the TV audience. Just loved her style & lots of attitude. And well of course The Feeling, so I might be a bit bias, but really they have a strong personal fashion sense. I thought Richard look great in Red trousers with a black a belt and black shoes. And I like Dan in a waist coat with his trade mark spats. I bought a pair last year but don’t tent to wear them often although I am partial to boots with buttons on the side. Anyway I think this will air next week some time. It will be cool to watch and see how they edited it!

Recycled items in Cape Town

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 25th, 2007

Recycled items that I saw in markets and shops in Cape Town. Is it out of necessity or style that we use recycled objects? Or both?

Table Mountain

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 24th, 2007

On the top of Table Mountain. I have flashes of Niagara Falls up upside down. I think it’s the closest thing I’ve been to, or at least the sensation that I had. As you know I’m a city girl and only last a short while outside of zone one. Anyway I just loved being on top of the mountain, it was so beautiful powerful. I keep imagining do yoga stories wearing LuLulemon sitting on the rocks on top of the world. And of course there is always a cute group of Japanese tourists!

Windy days & Photographers

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 21st, 2007

Photographers
I think it’s really tough to be a good locations photographer, of course it’s different then a studio shoot and each has its positive and negative side. You have to be quick thinking, creative and organized all at the time same. It looks hard to do and it really is. You have a whole team who is interdependent but on some level they are all depending on the photographer to get the shot, to pull the whole shoot together. Sometimes the photographer is in charge, sometimes it’s the art director, or editor, it’s only confusing when no one is in charge or you have all the responsibility and no authority. All of this is relevant to studio and location shoots. But for the locations photographer you are at the mercy of the elements. You are simply weather dependent and no matter how well organized and well planned you are, you just can’t do anything about the weather, you just have to know when to call it quits and start again the next day.

This shoot was very windy but we managed to get the shot list done!!

I debated about posting my portrait but it was really windy, and the only way that you would really have any idea to understand how windy it is, is to see my hair blowing straight up!

Shoots in Cape Town

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 16th, 2007

You might not even know the people that you’re working with on a shoot, it could be a whole new team for a job or maybe part of the team knows each other already. It’s different everytime.

We had a casting at when we first arrived, sometimes you do a selection before you arrive and then you do a casting according to your selection and brief. If you cast the right model 80% of your work is done, maybe not 80% but a huge amount, getting the right model is so important. And it’s not just about looks and size, so much if is it down to personality and that goes for the whole team.

Shooting on the beach, I worked with photographer Sara Wilson, I never worked with her before but ended up adoring her! She’s really cool and interesting and really web savvy. She loves blogs and uses skype all the time. It’s really cool way to work, you don’t know anyone and you spend every moment together for 10 days or so and then you all go off your separate ways.

What is Work Experience?

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 11th, 2007

What does a fashion assistant do, what is work experience?

Well let’s start with work experience. Well, this is the
other side of fashion, the realist part, the day to day reality, unglamorous
side but the 100% necessary side of fashion.

You could be asked to do any of the following tasks and I’m sure that there are
many, many things that I can’t think of at the moment.

  • Organize samples received or to be returned to PRs and checking condition of items
  • Upkeep of sample room and sample stock – keeping the area tidy and secure
  • Contacting public relation (PR) companies manufacturers and retailers
  • Research
  • Finding the best range of merchandise to be used in a shoot
  • Getting these garments to and from the studio or location
  • Picking up and returning garments to the PRs
  • Dressing the models for the shoot
  • Setting up the clothes for the shoot
  • Keeping track of the credits on a shoot
  • Steaming & ironing
  • Sewing a button on
  • Making tea
  • Running an errands
  • Keeping a keen eye on what is fashionable at any given time.

Another tube & train ride

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 7th, 2007

Sometimes I don’t even remember where I’m going, I just know the train time and where I get off but really don’t know where i am, and somehow it doesn’t matter as long as I know what I’m doing it doesn’t matter where I go.

Labels for Hannah

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 6th, 2007

Hannah Marshall is going to show her collection at  On Off during London Fashion Week. This just might be one of her new leather labels! I don’t think most shoppers know how much effort a designer puts into every aspect of their collection, the research, the design, fabric sourcing, pattern making, right down to the labels, swing tags and even the invites. There is so much riding on that one person!

Velcro

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 1st, 2007

Just incase you were wondering how VECRO came about!

"In 1941, a Swiss inventor called George de Mestral noticed
cockleburs were attached to his dog’s fur, whilst out walking.
Intrigued and realising the potential of this concept as a closure, he
spent a decade finding material and developing a machine that would
produce a closure with consistent performance.Klette
Derived
from the first syllables of the French words velour (loop) and crochet
(hook), the VELCRO® brand name has, since 1959, been given to an
extensive range of products that have simplified fastening and closure
operations all over the world."
