TOPSHOP VM & Fixture Course

I've been working with Topshop for the past two years, so when putting up to advanced level and being able to join with the Visual Merchandising & Fixture evening course, I was really excited.
Visual Merchandising is something I am hugely interested in, and which I'll consider having a field in, in the future. During this course, we looked at placement in store, how it can affect sales, visual merchandising and outfit building for the brand, and additionally having a further understanding on our current trends.

I gained alot from this course, as it got to work with the Visual Merchandiser of our area and headoffice, and engage with other brand managers and VMs from around the UK.

The Flow Market

I've always got a little interest in weird, and wacky little purchases, even if they are completely pointless. Searching around (my usual browsing) I came across Flow Market, who sell small tins with 'emotions' inside and labelled. This idea, I think is ideal, and with the pure packaging, innovative.
This product just makes me think of innovative gallery's, such as I HATE PERFUME, who turn a simple product into something relatable and emotion-triggering to the consumer.

Daring to fail

Miley Cyrus Nowness Video

Miley Cyrus hasn't been always in a great light in the media. But, with the new video directed by Quentin Jones, the geographic, memorising video is being labeled as an 'artistic porno'. However with the reputation she has and is trying to build as a 'sex figure', does this video give it justice?

Personally, after watching it I felt inspired, by the styling, the music, and the whole movement of the video. It's turning into a postivie into a negative, filled with catchy music, fun props, and post-production. No wonder there's been alot of buzz about it since release.
