Some pictures of my work

Some of the work I don't today.
iPhone app, luella bag, hanger and a swing ticket.
Really enjoying putting this FMP together !! Who would of thought I would say that...
Sooo I have realised I've started a bit of everything which is good but means I haven't finished anything as a whole.

This weekend I plan to finish the whole of the range building, the ranges for all 3 are done I need the triangles and product development to be completed. Also want to crack on and finishing sourcing, a chuck of my buyers pack and finish the PR bit which includes the website, swing ticket, hangers, bags etc.

Then it leaves VM, a bit of Merch style book and a bit of writing....oh god !!!!
Soooo it's like nearly a week till hand in ! Can't believe how quick FMP has gone let alone the whole year!
Got the whole of the vm done yesterday, which was like 9 planograms, a floor walk and my swing ticket, just need to do the hanger.

Today I'm doing my sourcing and finishing off my mood boards then to crack on with my merch

Soo today has been productive! See Rachel earlier today to talk about sourcing. So I've decided to source my dresses from the uk and the other products such as tops skirts etc from other countries like china and india as it will help me more with my sourcing part of my FMP. Soooo hopefully this week I can begin my Pestel report for each country.

Also I have completed a mood board on exotic Africa ! And completed half of the range. Exotic Africa is the final trend I'm doing ! Finally decided sooo it's exotic Africa, garden party and tropical paradise. Gunna try and get all my ranges/mood/trend boards completed by this week !

I need to post pictures of my work on here!! Keep forgetting gotta mind like a sieve.

One more thing !!!

My blog has views from all over America, south Korea, Germany, Russia and of corse England !!!!!

Didn't read over my last tweet it makes absolute no sense and words are missed out.
Not sure whether to blame the lack of sleep or the phones spell check..

Long time no speak!

I didn't realise how long it had been since I lasted wrote!! Ooops.

Welllll luella is underway one of my ranges which is about 50 odd options is completely finished with mood and trend boards. So to crack on with hot tropics trend and to make a decision on my 3rd trend ! Just can't decide.

The basic of Merch is done but obvs gotta do more don't want to do the bare minimum. Designed my label/swing ticket too! Even though I'm reinventing luella I still want to keep some things the same like the style and bits about the brand. So the brands bag and label were lilac/lavender before so I'm incorporating that into the high street version!

Need to get cracking on with dpp reflections cos I was poorly today boohoo :-(
