Recently there has been a lot of incredible TV shows and documentaries on TV representing the world of Fashion, retail, design, modelling and all. Being a total Fashion addict, of course I have found and have been keeping up with them all.
The first one of the lot is a reality show; Dash Dolls. It is essentially about the running and girls who work at the Kardahians sisters’ store; Dash. I’ll be honest at first about this show I thought ‘Oh Lord another thing on the Kardashians, although I do have a secret love for them too! But…since watching it I have been loving it! It is of course about the managers and overlookers of the store, as the Kardashian sisters obviously cannot always been there, twins and best friends of Khloe, Malika and Khadija. As well as all of the other girls that work at the stores, as sales assistants, as buyers, as managers and as visual merchandisers as well as their social media and advertising campaigns. So a lot of the little bits about the store are amazing as well as a team of people who work in fashion get on together. Plus the fact that all of the girls are stunning and dress incredibly makes it pretty amazing to watch as well…plus of course the dramas and gossip; alwaus makes a show.

The second show was a documentary I watched on London Fashion Week which was on BBC as well as still avaliable on BBC Iplayer as well as BBC catch up. It featured successful model Abbey Clancy going to three main catwalk events at London Fashion Week a few weeks ago as well as a lot of famous faces within the likes of designers, fashion PR mavens, journalists, models etc. The three shows included Hunter, Sibling and Giles.The documentary showed all of the shows as well as the creativity behind them and thoughts of Abbey as well as others on the hot pieces straight off the catwalk. It also focused on the opinions of high-end fashion and the importance of keeping high-end fashion in the industry as well as high street and less bank breaking brands. As well as speaking about the excitment of Fashion Week, British Fashion and the creativity and interest of runway shows. I have actually just found out whilst writing this that there is another version of this documentary featuring Grace Victory and her top favourite shows from London Fashion Week 2015; so I am definately off to watch that.
The final show is again on E! and it is a brand new series of show again, House Of DVF. In which 10 young fashionistas compete for the dream job to work and design for legendary designer and fashion icon Diane Von Furstenburg. This show is a real insight into not only these young fashion lovers trying to break into the industry and what to do to be professional and what not to do, in a sense learning about how to break into the career and make people interested in you. As well as learning about working as a team and getting along with them, as well as being entertained by their drama. However it also features a lot about the House of DVF brands, how they design, their image, how Diane has created her successful house, how she operates the brand as well as herself, insights to campaigns, photo shoots, fashion events etc. One of my favourite moments from the show was when Diane sat the girls down to look at and essentially criticise their designs; which was incredible to see how their designs were recieved as well as the imagery and inspiration behind them as well as what Diane is looking for within her clothing for her brand. Some of the other moments including them pitching their ideas, giving great ideas for fashion communication and campaigns as well as market research for trends and representation of the DVF brand. The best thing about this show is that Diane actually features in the show as well as the girls; giving her opinions and private voiceovers with her. I cannot wait for the rest of this show to envolve; right now it is up to episode 4 so not far along at all, so make sure you go check it out!
