Behind The Brands - Burberry
 
04:11
British brands which are enjoying global success - and they've all got an important link to the south. This week David Allard is exploring the stories behind the brands - starting with the fashion chain Burberry. In recent years it's shaken off its chav tag to become one of Britain's biggest exports, currently valued at £7 billion. But it all started when a young man opened a shop in Basingstoke in 1856. And can you help with the appeal we heard in that film? Do you or your family have an original First world war trenchcoat somewhere? In whatever condition? Would you be willing to loan it to Hampshire Museums? If so, we'd love to hear from you - email us at [email protected]

100 Years of Beauty - Poland
 
02:46
[POLSKIE TŁUMACZENIE PONIŻEJ] I’ve been waiting for someone to do it, but since no one volunteered, I shot it myself – here’s a video in the style of “100 Years of Beauty In…” – this time, a Polish edition. watching other videos like this, I felt like the Polish one would be different, because of our messy and difficult history. we never really had a chance to be very fashionable until the last three decades – with no access to modern fashion or make up brands, practically no fashion industry of our own, and lack of money to afford the fancy clothes, which were rarely even available. still, even amongst huge political conflicts and changes, women would style their hair, make their own clothes, and put a lot of effort into looking stylish. I left the 2010s „blank”, because it’s a decade that still hasn’t closed, and it’s fresh enough for all of us Polish women to have different experiences and memories surrounding it. also, it’s up to us what it’s going to be remembered for anyway! making this video was incredibly hard for me. not only because I had to transform myself 11 times, and not only because it was very emotional, but because it’s just so difficult to be “objective”, especially when talking about a period of history that is this broad. that’s why I’d like to apologize to anyone that feels the video misrepresents what actually happened, or focuses on things that are not considered historically important. I was doing my best to find one event or historical fact that affected women in each decade (and it so happens that a lot of these revolve around Polish political systems). my choices weren’t based on political sympathies, but rather on what I thought could be widely considered a thing that affected large numbers – but not always all - of women in Poland in the given era. for example, I am aware not everyone was imprisoned in the 1950s, or actively fought the government in the 1970s and the 1980s, and most of the people led quite ordinary lives. it’s also hard to portray a single look for one decade, especially after 1960s, where different people chose different styles and you could be equally fashionable sporting a punk leather jacket as you would be wearing a classy padded jacket and an elegant hat. I hope you understand that! DISCLAIMER: I myself am not Jewish and obviously am far from understanding even a glimpse of what the Jews have been through and the trauma their ancestors are dealing with to this day. I was wearing the band as a character I chose to portray. all looks are based on Polish photos and videos from the eras. [POLISH] czekałam na polską wersję tak długo, że aż zrobiłam ją sama. w internecie pojawiły się już różne „edycje” – amerykańska, hinduska, rosyjska, ale ja miałam wrażenie, że polska byłaby zupełnie inna – głównie dlatego, że przez ostatnie stulecie nie mieliśmy zbyt wiele okazji, by wyglądać modnie. i co jest absolutnie godne podziwu, mimo wszystkich przemian politycznych i zawirowań historii kobiety robiły wiele, żeby i tak być stylowymi. lata 10. XXI wieku zostawiłam “puste”, bo ta dekada jeszcze się nie skończyła i moim zdaniem jest za świeża, żeby można było podsumować ją jednym wydarzeniem. zresztą jestem pewna, że dla każdej Polki co innego zasługuje na wspomnienie. praca nad tym filmikiem była dość ciężka – nie tylko ze względu na 11 przemian, jakie musiałam przemyśleć, przygotować i w końcu wyegzekwować na sobie w ciągu jednego dnia, i nie tylko dlatego, że było to dość emocjonalne przeżycie, ale głównie z tego powodu, że jest bardzo ciężko być obiektywnym, zwłaszcza biorąc się za temat tak szeroki. dlatego z góry przepraszam, jeśli ktoś uważa, że wybrałam nieznaczące wydarzenia lub błędnie podsumowałam dekady. starałam się znaleźć po jednym wydarzeniu historycznym, które wpłynęło na polskie kobiety w danej dekadzie (a tak się składa, że spora część z nich ma jakiś związek z sytuacją polityczną w danym okresie). nie kierowałam się własnymi sympatiami, ale starałam się wybrać te wydarzenia lub nastroje społeczne, które mogły w jakiś sposób wpłynąć na dużą liczbę kobiet w naszym kraju (choć oczywiście nie wszystkie!). zdaję sobie sprawę, że nie wszyscy lata 50. spędzili w więzieniu, a lata 70. na ulicznych protestach. poza tym, kolejną trudnością było wybranie jednej sylwetki na każdą dekadę, zwłaszcza po latach 60., kiedy ludzie zaczęli ubierać się w różnych stylach, i równie modne było założenie skórzanej kurtki co eleganckiego żakietu i kapelusza. mam nadzieję, że mimo to udało mi się sportretować choć ułamek tego, jak wyglądały Polki w ubiegłym stuleciu. wszystkie stroje inspirowane były oryginalnymi polskimi fotografiami i filmami dokumentalnymi. ____________ My Instagram: http://bit.ly/2ki6VTq My blog: http://bit.ly/2nnB89S

The First Book of Fashion
 
08:33
Fashion conveys complex messages. The recreation of an outfit taken from one of an extraordinary series of Renaissance portraits reveals how one man made his mark on society. In 1530 Matthäus Schwarz, an accountant in the German city of Augsburg, was man in his prime: slim, smart and successful. In a portrait that shows him in an outfit made for the occasion of the Imperial Diet of Augsburg, he is every inch the fashionable man about town, ready to step out of his door and join the party. In the painting Schwarz wears a doublet made in panes of brilliant red and yellow silk over a shirt cut from fine linen. His slender calves are shown off in yellow leather hose and his knees are cross-gartered. On his feet are slim shoes and on his head is a flat black beret made in felted wool. At his waist are belts carrying the sword and red purse that complete the picture. Now an experimental project undertaken by Dr Ulinka Rublack, Reader in Early Modern History at the University of Cambridge, has brought this portrait alive in a historically accurate reconstruction of the outfit it depicts. The project reveals the role of dress in conveying complex social and political messages and the way in which fashion had a profound effect on mood and behaviour.

BBC Britain on Film - Episode 4 Fashion - Look at Life FULL
 
29:01
In 1959 Britain's biggest cinema company, the Rank Organisation, decided to replace its newsreels with a series of short, quirky, topical documentaries that examined all aspects of life in Britain. For the next ten years, Look at Life chronicled - on high-grade 35mm colour film - the changing face of British society, industry and culture. Britain on Film draws upon the 500 films in this unique archive to offer illuminating and often surprising insights into what became a pivotal decade in modern British history. The series shows how Look at Life reflected the radical shifts in the position of women in British society, and shows how the country adapted to the new demands and expectations of women at home, in the workplace and at play.

China in Britain #4 Dr Sarah Cheang on Chinoiserie Fashion
 
36:10
'Chinese robes, on (and off) European women' presented by Dr Sarah Cheang In the late nineteenth century, if one were lucky enough to obtain an embroidered Chinese robe, it was a common enough practice to cut it up to make cushion covers and decorative trimmings for the home. By the 1920s, however, Chinese robes were also being worn as fashionable evening coats, having finally made the leap from sofa to body in European society. This paper considers the design, materiality and symbolism of the Chinese robe in European domestic spaces. What was it about these Chinese garments that made them so very culturally flexible during this period? And how important are these transitions between Chinese and Caucasian bodies, and between bodies and furniture in understanding the role that Chinese culture played in European lives? Dr Sarah Cheang is Senior Tutor in History of Design at the Royal College of Art. Her research focuses on cultural exchange between East and West with a special interest in fashion, gender and the body. She is currently preparing two books for publication. One is titled Fashion and Ethnicity (Berg Publishers), and explores the ways in which ethnic identities are expressed and created using fashion. The other is called Sinophilia (I. B. Tauris) and is a history of fashion and Chinese material culture in Britain. Recorded Dec 8th, 2012.

Brand new videos 7 days a week! In this video: For fashion, even war is no excuse to let standards slip, as many British women found out during WW2. As part of doing their part for King and Country, they were strongly encouraged to contribute to the war effort by looking their best at all times. In fact, one bit of British war propaganda was literally “Beauty is your duty”… As you might imagine, this led to some rather ingenious solutions to solve the inevitable shortages of cosmetics and clothing that arose as a result of wartime rationing.

Transcript: * OK, imagine you’re an unmarried lady out for a stroll in 19th-century London. First of all, you better not be alone. That’s right: You need an escort. But what happens if you see a man you recognize? Well, first of all, he’s not allowed to talk to you unless you make a gesture of recognition first. Which, OK, I can kind of see the appeal of that one – you don’t have to pretend to be doing something on your phone to avoid making eye contact, etc. But let’s say you really want to stop and talk to this guy: Well... you can’t. Or at least you shouldn’t. If you want to talk to him, instead of stopping, you can offer him your hand, which he can take, but only _after_ lifting his hat, using the hand farthest away from you. Once he takes your hand, he has to walk along with you, but even then you can’t just gab away. According to _Cassell’s Household Guide_, "Strict reticence of speech and conduct should be observed in public." That means no "loud talking" or "animated discussions." And if you see a gentleman you’d like to speak to, but he’s smoking a cigar, tough luck. It is amazingly rude for a man to smoke in the presence of a woman, so if you acknowledge him, he’ll have to put out his cigar, and for all you know it might have been a really expensive cigar, and now you’ve just ruined his morning. Nice work, Myrtle. * Do you ever have that problem where you want to date the neighbor’s daughter but you don’t know if she’s technically “on the market” yet, or if her parents still consider her a child? No? Good! Because that’s amazingly creepy! Fortunately, the Victorians had a formalized system for avoiding this problem: Presentation at court. If you were a respectable family who wanted to announce that your son or daughter was ready for courtship -- which is basically dating, minus all the fun, plus a lot of conversations with chaperones to determine if young men were predisposed to “base amusements” -- you could do this at a specialized event. Young men could be introduced at events called “levees,” which were held several times a year. Young ladies could be introduced at presentation events held at St. James Palace – and these events didn’t skimp on the pomp and protocol either. Men had to wear buckled shoes and swords. Ladies had to stick tall feathers in their hair and drag 3-yard trains behind their dresses. But once the kids are ready to start dating, that’s when the etiquette fangs really sink in: * Lots of parents get weirdly strict and judgmental when their kids start dating, but Victorian England really took it to another level. First of all, etiquette manuals of the time advised young lovers that, technically, you’re _supposed_ to look for partners only within your own social class, because we all know how awkward it is when you’re a Baroness and you’re trying to chat up a nice Viscount, and his mother is just right over there on the fainting couch looking at you with eyes that say, “Trash.”

Watch more on the BFI Player: http://player.bfi.org.uk/ Made in a period when many African countries were proclaiming their independence from Britain, this 1962 episode of a Central Office of Information-sponsored series, Looking at Britain, speaks to a colonial mentality that local movements were challenging. Evidence of the filmmakers' oblivious attitude is clear in the frankly bizarre choice to focus on Samuel Sherman's 'Sambo' fashion line. Also note the tendency to portray women working in fashion as machinists and men as craftsman.

Along the way, he sees a long-lost garden that - through archaeology and a German Luftwaffe photograph taken in the 1940s - reveals the hidden messages and religious beliefs of our 17th-century forebears.

As the number of victims grows, data suggests Britain has the worst record in the developed world for assaults with household acids like bleach and drain cleaner.

The Women's movement in Britain
 
17:11
Ella Rule gives a short, amusing and informative talk, about the recent history of the 'Women's movement' in Britain. Addressing a meeting to Mark international Women's day, held by the CPGB-ML and Red Youth in Birmingham, on 8 March 2014, she outlines why working class women have not been involved in the women's movement - because it has not addressed their needs. Speaking from her experience, and with reference in particular to the 1972 women's conference held in Skegness, which she and her comrades attended, she illustrates how a potentially progressive and liberating movement was effectively hijacked and side-tracked by a number of petty-bourgeois groups who pushed their false, anti-men, anti-worker, anti-social(ist) and anti-marxist views on the movement that developed in the 1960s and 1970s, effectively destroying it. She prefaces her remarks by noting that Women have everything to gain by pursuing the path of socialism, and the overthrow of the capitalist system, that exploits the majority, divides them and gives them a life of servitude, in the interests of fabulous super-profits of an insignificant handful (of men predominantly, but a few of the few are, in fact, women) - the finance capitalists. How can real equality and liberation be won by working women? By liberating humanity from the system of wage slavery. Subscribe! Donate!
