Vivienne Westwood interview! 12th JAN

Had my interview for the vivienne westwood showroom placement at 2pm. SO scared.
The night before i was practising what i'd say about why i love fashion, why do i like the brand? strengths etc.
Went to the shop on conduit street and one of the girls got the lady.
She then took me upstairs and showed me around the new showrooms and sat me down and told me about what the placement entailed.
She thensaid i'd got it.
I WAS SOOO HAPPY but wasn't sure if i'd misheard her or she was talking about someone else so it wasn't until i was on the way out, i asked if i'd got it and she said i had and laughed.
She also sent me a conformation email below which actually says

Hi Rhiannon
It was nice to meet you today.
I am very happy to offer you the position of intern for the Anglomania Precollection SS10 which will be showing here at the London Showroom from late April to mid May 2009. I will confirm the exact dates to you when I have them.
We look forward to seeing you then.
Best regards
Esther

44 Conduit Street ^^

Christmas.....

Was spent researching loadsssss on critical studies essay.
Favourite quotes

"Perhaps blankly gazing into a fire someone, somewhere, sometime, suddenly saw a face in the flickering flames. At that moment matter became mind and man stepped through the looking glass."

"The African bushman points to a specific point on the horizon and says -'There are zebras.' We look and see nothing. I find that rather sad."

Finished it today. phew! quite rushed, should have made more effort on the references.

DRT- HAND IN. DONE!

Finished everything, i combined loads of my enterprise with DRT so ended up making some photoshop images and animations and a website.
DRT was actually one of my favourite subjects so far. I think i must be quite a quick learner on the computer.
Getting a mac in about 2 days so i'll be able to practise my skills.


My logo animation



Needle and thread animation


Just got my mark back, i got a 62, which i think is a bit disappointing for me. Wish i'd done better.

Bit late but evaluation of Business presentation


So our presentation was put together by Bec whilst me and Cat focused on our DRT brief. However the night before, we all went to Bec's house and added more info and sorted out who was saying what. We had to practice serveral times to get it to stay under the time but we managed to cut things down so it all would fit. I'd been doing some pictures, animations and the website for our business as my DRT so we had to put all those in and comment on them.
On the actual day we were very nervous, and Bridge actually failed someone before ours so we got even more worried. When it came to it, we were actually ok. I held up the dress i made and just smiled whilst i spoke. 
After the presentation, Bridge gave us feedback saying that it was an absolute delight and we'd obviously researched well. She said we had a lot of passion for the business and it showed.
Hopefully this means we'll get a high mark!
