A week Berlin, I have to say was not long enough. It's probably somewhere that I will carry on visiting throughout my life time (fingers crossed!) 
Even though I saw so much (The Reichstag Building, Brandenburg Gate, The Berlin Wall, The Jewish Museum, The Berlin Zoo and countless galleries) I could definitely return not have to repeat anything. 
It's such an unconventional city, and nothing like what I expected it to be, and yet I am already looking forward to my next visit.   

The Jewish Memorial

One added bonus about this city was the traffic lights, and especially the pedestrian crossings! 
How can you not like a crossing light that wears a hat?

Fashion Editorial

This was a group project where we were given a brand and a magazine and then left to our own devices to decide what we would do for the brief.
We were given the brand Vivienne Westwood and the magazine Elle, and we had to produce a fashion editorial for that magazine. 

Researching firstly into Westwoods autumn/winter collection for 2013 we found that she had produced three different collections. Anglomania was one of her staple mad fashion collections which we decided would be too much because Elle magazine usually only features wearable clothing for the 20's to 30's. Instead we chose to base our clothing on her Red Label. This collection was far more wearable, very smart yet still young enough to be worn by the age group. 

Climate revolution was a big part of Westwoods collections. It was all about the reusable, making do and the natural. It related to her clothing but it also related to climate change, and how we could try and reduce or even stop it. 
Because of this we chose to use a natural environment for our fashion location. One of our group members found wood/forest area, and after analysing it we decided this would be a great place to shoot at.

The images below show our actual fashion editorial in its final layout.

I am personally really happy with our outcome, and believe that it fits the brief that we were given.
